It changed its name to Savio high in the 90s didn't it? I remember the skirmishes we used to have with them when I went to Hillside. ;)

I've attached a photo of the first intake of the Salesian College Bootle ,which started off in St. Martin's on Stanley Road September 1964.
Apologies for the colour but it's as close to reality as I can remember after so many years.
The blazers were the Salesian equivalent of Johnny Cash's dad christening him Sue.

Picture of Orrell Pleasure on a sunny day.

Image

The picture reminded me that whenever the Salesian pitches were heavy, Mr. Brookman would send us to play our school house games on Orrell Pleasure.
The drainage at the Dunningsbridge end of Savio was rubbish. The land was the site of what we used to call the jungle. Before it was developed,it was an overgown, boggy mess.

To the left of the golf course is tintown and the Kirkstone estate.

Assembly Hall to some, but always the Exam Hall once you'd been through it.

Image

Some of the lads went back to visit in April 2018.

One, who shall remain nameless, (Danny) remarked on the similarity between the images of St John Bosco and Colin Harvey.

You can take the man out of Bootle, but you can't take Bootle out of the man.

To the left of the stage stood the doors that led to the Refectory. Never had to use that word since leaving school. A waste of part of my education.

Looking at it, the wooden floor has aged better than most of us.

First intake GCE O Level results in 1969.

Father Keogh, and some of the lads, would refer to us as The Pioneers.

I always preferred The Immortals. But maybe that's just my heightened sense of the dramatic.
