Spiritual Activities

Catholic life is commonplace at Salesian. Students enjoy a dynamic array of extra-curricular opportunities to both deepen their faith and their interest in the wider world.

Philosophy club welcomes students of all ages and meets every Monday in room 28. Ultimate questions like can robots think? and Why was life created? tend to be the question of the day. Our annual philosophy trip to Pensarn is always a fun talking point as outdoor pursuits like kayaking and climbing merge with evening explorations of student-led ultimate questioning.

Fair Trade group is led by a dynamic team of Year 9 philosophy students who are always on the lookout for new enthused members. 

Alpha group meets on a Thursday lunchtime in room 42, this group is less into debate and more into calm questioning, atheists and theists lunch together exploring what belief and faith look like today using both film and discussion to grow in knowledge and understanding. Music is central to spiritual life at Salesian, Friday you can often hear the fabulous Souls choir blasting out modern spiritual tunes that echo beautifully across the site, just ask Miss Clarey if you want to get involved. Please see our extra-curricular for further details.

For some students however they much prefer to get stuck in with fundraising for the annual Red Shirts pilgrimage to Lourdes. Here students are encouraged to deepen their understanding of what their faith means to them while also taking part in voluntary works.
