Pupils from Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester, recently enjoyed a three-day residential retreat at Savio House in Bollington, Cheshire.

They were able to take time out from their busy lives to reflect upon themselves, their hopes and dreams and their relationships with those around them. The retreat provided a break from the routine of everyday school activities. The young people are given the opportunity to look deeply at their own lives and the nature of their own belief. This was done through games, discussion, craft-activities, prayer and liturgy.

The trip was part-funded by the Saint Paul’s Parents, Teachers and Friends Association.

Savio House is run by the Salesians of Don Bosco, a religious congregation renowned for their youth work and family-oriented approach.

Students visit Savio House from all over the north of England, North Wales and the Midlands to benefit from the retreats.
