On December 18th 2013, parents, staff, governors and friends of the school gathered at the Church of Christ The Prince Of Peace in Weybridge to celebrate Christmas with a Festival of Carols and Readings.
At the end of the Autumn Term, Ina Coles stepped down as Chaplain, after a long teaching career at Salesian School. Colleagues, friends, ex-students and clergy gathered to celebrate Mass with her, followed by a reception in the Hall.
After 31 years’ service at Salesian School, Dr John Lydon is leaving following his appointment as Senior Lecturer in the School of Education, Theology and Leadership at St Mary’s University College. A Mass in celebration of his contribution took place in St Anne’s Chertsey at the end of the Christmas Term.
Each year the RE department try to run a short pilgrimage for some of our pupils. This year, for the first time, we were able to visit the shrine of Our Lady at Fatima. In addition, we visited the birthplace of St Anthony in Lisbon where we prayed before his relic as the late Pope John Paul II had done. The trip to Cristo Rei (Christ the King) was quite spectacular – it is very reassuring to have an image of Christ looking over a capital city.
