Savio Salesian College in Lourdes



Pupils and staff from Savio Salesian College, Bootle, are having an amazing expereince in Lourdes this week. The trip is an eagerly anticipated feature of the school's life, and pupils have been hard at work fundraising for many months.


In true Salesian style, the trip combines a pilgrimage and a holiday for the young people, with moving visits to the Shrine and churches, along with opportunities to relax, have fun and visit local attractions.

Savio Salesian College singing for Lourdes


On the last Sunday of the Christmas term, the Lourdes Group at Savio Salesian College, Bootle, undertook a Charity Sing-a-Long at Sainsbury's Rice Lane, Liverpool to support the college's annual pilgrimage to Lourdes.


Thirty seven pupils and five staff, with the support of Mr Bennett's 60's Band 'GENEVIVE' entertained staff and costumers with Christmas hits and carols. The pupils represented the school impressively, and raised over £660! This brings the total amount raised for Lourdes since September to £2200, which is nearly half way to their goal of £5000 which will be used to fund the pilgrimage.
