Happy Birthday, Salesian Sisters!

Written by
On 5th August 1872, the first fifteen Salesian Sisters were clothed in their religous garments, and eleven of them (including St Mary Mazzarello) made their first professions. Don Bosco and the Bishop of Acqui were present on this joyful occasion at Mornese, Italy. Mother Mazzarello, who had worked with Don Bosco to establish the new society, was elected as their first superior on the same day.

Chaplain Fr Marco Villani writes about Salesian School's GCSE Design Technology and Art Exhibition this year

On Thursday July 4th 2019, the Art and Technology Departments at Salesian School Chertsey hosted an exhibition of GCSE and A-level work in the St. Patrick’s Exam Hall at Guildford Road. Parents and staff were invited to an event showcasing the incredible talent that the pupils and students possess.



On Wednesday July 10th 2019, Year 10s attended a Talk For Change in the new St Patrick’s Exam Hall at Guildford Road, Chertsey. The key speakers from the Mizen Foundation were none other than Margaret Mizen and her son Danny Mizen, the mother and brother of murdered teenager Jimmy Mizen who was killed in 2008.

The first part of the talk was led by Margaret Mizen, who spent time narrating the joy of Jimmy’s young life, his untimely death and the impact that this has had on his family and the wider community. Margaret also spoke with passion and conviction of the role of her Catholic Faith in sustaining and comforting her and her family.
