September sees the start of a new school year and we are very much looking forward to welcoming back all of our students to St John Bosco College this month.  We were fortunate to be able to stay 'open for business' throughout lock down, with a number of students attending lessons on site and everyone else having the opportunity to learn from and interact with their teachers through Microsoft Teams from home.  Online learning has a growing importance in education but the value of interacting with teachers and other students in school has been highlighted by its absence over recent months and we are excited to get all of our students back in to the routines and rhythms of school life.

With the continuing concerns around the coronavirus pandemic the safety of our students, staff and visitors remains our priority and a range of measures have been put in place to minimise the risk of spreading the virus in school.   This will inevitably mean changes to some of the 'normal' ways of working but we will attempt to ensure that our children's education is not compromised by these alterations.

As a Catholic, Salesian, community we remain optimistic and indeed aim to follow Don Bosco's maxim that we should 'serve the Lord with holy cheerfulness'.  With that spirit in mind I'd like to welcome all our children, staff and families back and encourage you all to look forward to what we can achieve together over the coming weeks, months and years.  I would also like to welcome all visitors to this website who are looking to find out more about our school and encourage you to get in touch with us.

Please be assured of the love and prayers of our school community at the start of another school year. As I have said before, if we stay united and keep going throughout this crisis we will emerge even stronger once it is over.

Best wishes

Paul Dunne
Headteacher
