Children are encouraged to be BRAVE, OUTSTANDING, SOCIABLE, COURTEOUS and OBEDIENT. The challenge is to live in harmony with everyone respecting the differences in religious beliefs and other aspects of social life.

Children are encouraged to save their pocket money through weekly bank deposits which are collected by a team of dedicated volunteers and handed over to the chief-coordinator of Bosco Kids. The amount is disbursed towards the end of May.
