School Voice 2014

The 'School Voice' began again after a 'fallow' year last weekend (7-9 February). It saw the coming together of 4 Salesian Schools - Savio Salesian College Bootle, St. John Bosco Arts College Liverpool, Thornleigh Salesian College Bolton and Salesian College Farnborough.DSC 0498

The reason they come together as school councils is so that they can share their experience of their schools and to get a sense of what it means to belong to the wider Salesian family. The atmosphere from the first few icebreakers was tremendous. The young people were mixing and it was difficult for an outsider like me to guess which school they had come with!

We listened to how each of the groups had progressed within their role as councillors within the school and how they had gone about attaining this achievement. We looked at the values of communication, respect, teamwork and trust in a fun and interactive way.

In the afternoon, (as predicted by Mr Moore), it rained!! - Just as we were setting off for a walk!

Jubilee Extension

Four years ago, Fr Michael Winstanley sent out a questionnaire to find out what improvements our users would like to see at Savio House. The suggestion which came up most often was to provide better recreational facilities for the young people who come to Savio for residential or day retreats.

On 02/02/02, in the year of the Golden Jubilee of Savio House, the response to this suggestion reached its fulfillment. The Bishop of Shrewsbury, Brian Noble, blessed and opened the new Jubilee Extension to the Mews building. (Click here for the blessing prayer.) The new building provides indoor games facilities with room for two table tennis tables and two pool tables.

Bishop Brian thanked the Salesians for their work for young people in the diocese, and Fr Michael, the Rector, thanked the many people who had helped to plan and carry out the project.

In the pictures below we see the Bishop speaking with Fr Michael, Martin Rose (clerk of works) and Fr Tom Carroll (now retired), and a general view of the guests, including many of the volunteers who have worked at Savio House in recent years.
