Fr. Dominic Lisboa

Vice Rector

It is said that we must always pay heed to wise people and wisdom comes with experience. Fr. Dominic is definitely a man with experience. His last assignment was in Bosco Boys Home, Borivali where he has been the Vice Rector and Administrator for the last 2 years. With a missionary spirit he has worked relentlessly in many Salesian institutions all over India and has even worked in the Andamans. He is very Salesian in his approach and humble, bringing his touch of order to wherever he has been.

Fr. Akhil Abraham

Vice Principal and Administrator

Don Bosco Nerul, warmly welcomes Fr. Akhil Abraham to take over the position of Vice Principal and Administrator of this prestigious institution. He was ordained in the year 2020. His first assignment after his Ordination was at Shelter Don Bosco, Wadala (W), Mumbai, a Salesian Institute for Children in need of Care and Protection as the Program Coordinator. He makes his presence felt and brings along his qualities of caring, hardwork and sacrifice. He is constantly on the move and humbly attends to the smallest detail, supervising the work done personally and efficiently, thus making his presence felt. In his soft yet firm manner, he demystifies any situation that needs his attention.

Fr. Adolph Furtado

Student Mentor

Fr. Adolf has several facets to his persona, has been in various places and positions of importance in the Province and Salesians of India, after he returned from the US, where he studied in Berkeley. He has been Principal in various Salesian schools, changing those to very modern systems, he began in Don Bosco Matunga where he changed the style of teaching and learning and did the same at Dominc Savio, Andheri where he was Principal and Rector. He was In – charge and founder of the Don Bosco International School Matunga and was Rector of St. Joseph’s Kurla, where he turned that institute on its head from a simple ITI producing grade V and VI category work force to re-inventing the institute to what it is today. He established there a Management institute with Bachelors and Masters’ degree, An Engineering institute with degrees and diplomas in IT, Marine and Electronic engineering. A top end Hospitality degree institute and a well equipped Mass media and Communications Degree College. Least to say, it is one of the premier institutes of the Salesians in India, all due to his leadership and vision. We know he brings a great depth of his wisdom and innovative perspectives to DB Nerul, much beyond the Student Counselor position he will be handling at Don Bosco Nerul.
