St John Bosco College Battersea tells us more about the recent visit of Lord O'Donnell


Early this June, staff and students from St John Bosco College (SJBC) in Battersea welcomed ex-Salesian College pupil Gus O’Donnell to give tips on making a success of their chosen careers as well as some enlightening insights into working at the very top of government.


Now Lord O’Donnell, Gus was born, raised and educated in south London before reading Economics at Warwick University. A keen sportsman and a footballer of some distinction, Gus had to face the realisation that, despite his best efforts, he was never going to be a professional for his beloved Manchester United. Following his MPhil from Nuffield College, Oxford, Lord O’Donnell obtained a PhD from the University of Glasgow.


The Salesians are very proud to be sponsoring Adoremus Youth, an event for young people taking place on Saturday 8th September, as part of the National Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool.
Over 1000 young people from all over the UK are expected to take part in the event, held at the Echo Arena, close to the city's historic waterfront. The theme is "I an the Bread of Life", and a range of inspiring speakers has been lined up, together with great music, engaging activities and culminating in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
The event s aimed at young people from 13 - 20, with age-appropriate activities taking place in three streams, for those aged 13-15, 16-17 and 18-20.  Sessions for 16-17 year-olds will be led by a Salesian team which will include SDBs.



We are delighted to have another student from Thornleigh Salesian College, Bolton with us this week for a work experience placement. Niamh, a Year 10 student, has shown talent and versatility, as she worked across Don Bosco Publications and Salesianlink.


Her busy week has included editing complex translated text for a new book, selecting the quotes for July's Text-a-Day, and using her amazing artistic skills to create Salesianlink's social media quote pictures for next month. Her ongoing project for the week has been to research, write and edit the Province's news, and to produce the latest issue of RuaLink e-news.

From 11 – 15 June 2018, nine Salesians, accompanied by Mrs Marguerite Lydon, travelled to Villa Palazzola, Rocca di Papa, Italy. The summer house of the English College, Rome overlooking Lake Albano to the south of the city of Rome was the perfect setting for a few days holiday together.


On Wednesday June 27th 2018, almost two hundred and fifty pupils from Year 7 completed a circuit of Salesian School Guildford Road. This event, organised by the Chaplain and supported by the Head of Year 7, involved Year 7 pupils completing a 0.48km walk around the Guildford Road site in Tutor Groups with their Tutors.
