Taster Events

At the College we hold a number of different events for students in Year 5, these events include:

Year 5 Taster Day

Salesian College’s Year 5 Taster Day is an excellent way to experience life at Salesian and all that it has to offer your son.

This year's Taster Day, due to take place on 29 June 2020, has been postponed due to Coronavirus. All those who have registered will instead be sent a remote presentation during the week commencing 6 July 2020.
