The world Federation of Don Bosco Past Pupils originated on 24th June 1870. It sprang from the family spirit of the Preventive System, at the Valdocco Oratory, Turin, Italy. The Past Pupils Movement was not something started by the educators as an association for school leavers but for group activities with a selected membership. It grew up on its own with a charismatic vitality at its beginnings. The Past Pupils come together and constitute the Association because they feel the bonds of gratitude and think that together with the Salesians, they can update the education they had received and make it fruitful.
Don Bosco Past Pupils Association, Tirupattur Unit was established in 1990.
