Salesian College Feast Day: 9 September

Dear Students & Parents,

We will be celebrating Salesian Feast Day on the second last Friday of term, Friday 9 September.  This day is now an annual celebration (last year being the inaugural celebration) and celebrates the uniqueness of being a Salesian school, in the image of Don Bosco.  At Salesian we view this day as a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our Salesian heritage and all that takes place in our own special Salesian community every day.  The celebration is a compulsory day and one that we expect to be filled with activities that reflect important values in our College:  Celebration of Eucharist, House based activities, hospitality of food, fun and the traditional MADD showcase (Music Art Drama & Dance).

What will happen? The day will include the following activities:
Whole School Mass
MADD completion- The Voice, Theatre Sports, Battle of the Bands, Dance, Art on Canvas
House Activities: Just Dance, Face Painting, Mini Golf, Darts, Egg & Spoon Races
Other activities such as: Harley Rides, Daytona Games, Giant Slide, UFO Rides & Food Stalls
Announcement of MADD winners as a contribution to the Papworth Cup
Normal start and finish times to the school day

What a great day!
