Don Bosco Greywolves Balamban

A Don Bosco campus will never be without its playground. Indeed it is always true that in all Don Bosco schools, we find this saying: Run, jump and shout but do not sin. The playground was always a psychological laboratory of Don Bosco, he discovered the characters and developed character of his boys in the playground and he gave his famous “whispered words of advice” in the playground.

The Don Bosco Greywolves were officially formed last November 2020 with the help of friends, benefactors and alumni of DBTC Punta Princesa. We thank all of them for their generous hearts and may God bless them always specially during this pandemic.
