DayInLifeOfChaplaincySavioSalColl 500


As the new school year begins, follow Fr Jakub Rusniak SDB and the team through a day in the life of the Chaplaincy at Savio Salesian College, Bootle, in this article from the latest issue of Don Bosco Today.


It’s 8 o’clock in the morning and Brother Maciek Sokalkski SDB is just opening the door to the chaplaincy room.


It’s been raining all night and a group of pupils, who have been waiting in the cold for a few minutes now, come into the warmth to watch an episode of ‘The Simpsons’ before the lessons begin. The video club is always fun. Students—especially those dropped off early by their parents—love to spend their time here. It’s their space. They can have their morning toast while enjoying some fun before the lessons begin. Soon after, the children go to meet their tutors and another day starts.

Opening of All Saints RC Primary, Bootle

The new Bootle super school, All Saints RC Primary based in the Salesian parish of St James, was officially opened on Friday 4th December 2009 by Bishop Tom Williams, auxiliary of Liverpool, and our local MP, Mr Joe Benton, who is also a governor of Savio Salesian College. The school offers a state of the art educational and community facility that is open from 7.30am to late at night and is only closed for two weeks in the year! As a Salesian parish we are delighted that the school is sited opposite our beautiful parish church of St James and see it as an intrinsic part of our Salesian mission here in Bootle. The new school shows our parish vision statement at work: with Christ and the Church, building the future, in Bootle, on firm foundations.

Over five hundred people packed into St James' Church on Thursday night, 25th January 2007, for the official opening ceremony of our new parish school, All Saints Catholic Primary School, Bootle, which we will share with St Joan of Arc parish. Teachers and children presented a wonderful service based on theme 'Building the Future on Firm Foundations' through music, readings, reflections, artwork and dance.

The evening ended with a wonderful firework display and buffet; we were especially glad to welcome past pupils and staff from the three schools that make up All Saints: St James, St Joan of Arc, and St Winefride and St Richard's.
