Have a Holy and Happy Easter - God Bless
The Easter Bunny and his helpers made a welcome appearance in all the classes this week. They did a great job!
Year Six enjoyed taking part in their final sponsored egg roll event at St Joseph's this week. There was much fun had by all with good sportsmanship evident throughout.
Well done Trudy - our Year Six Winner 2018.
St. Joseph's Feast Day
We enjoyed St. Joseph's Feast Day today by celebrating Mass with the rest of the school. We raised the roof with the tremendous singing and even managed to bring the sun out on this bitterly cold day.
We then braved the weather at our tennis tournament raising more money for our St Joseph's Penny Appeal. Thank you to all who took part either by playing or supporting your peers. It was a nail biting finish with two winners this year - Freddie and Finley - Well done boys.
Our Lenten Journey 2018
As we entered the season of Lent together, we began our path towards Easter as the time of change and renewal in our Church calendar. We took part in our Ash Wednesday service to mark the beginning of our 40 days of prayer, fasting and good works.
Our fundraising activities to support the Diocesan ‘St Joseph’s Penny’ appeal now well underway offering yet again many fantastic ideas to support and promote this most worthy of causes. As we journey through Lent together, pupils have been participating with Sister Cecily at Stations of the Cross on a Wednesday, organising mouth-watering cake sales and returning their St Joseph's Penny Boxes.
Thank you for supporting our St Joseph’s Lenten Appeal in 2018.
Thanks to you we can continue to make a difference to our communities!
All the children at St Joseph's had some time out of class to help with a spring clean of our school environment. Year 6 did a fantastic job of helping Reception to clear all the litter from the Infant playground. Well done everyone for helping to keep our school and local community litter free.
World Book Day
Year Six celebrated 'World Book Day' in style this week by dressing up as a fictional character from one of their favourite books. All the children got into the spirit of the occasion and joined in with the activities on the day itself.
We also had fun perusing the pop up book sale that took place this week. There were many books being shared and tempting our purse strings!
World Book Day Competition
The end result for our competetion entry was truly superb! It was wonderful how the whole school worked together to create our 'Flying High with Reading' display - special thanks go to Miss Kenny and Mrs Ormrod.
Well done and good luck St. Joseph's.
Good Luck St. Joseph's
Years Five and Six have been staying after school to develop their debating skills in preparation for their first competition next week. The level of skills required for debating has increased dramatically over the weeks and they are now ready to embark on their first debut.
A Blast from the Past
We were thrilled to welcome some past pupils back at St Joseph's this morning. As part of a transition activity organised by All Hallows, the pupils - ranging from Year 7 to 11 - came to talk with our Year Six class. They openly shared their own experiences of high school, brought some examples of work to show and answered any questions that the children had. Year Six thoroughly enjoyed the session and took a lot from it.
It was wonderful to see how well our past pupils are doing - thank you so much.
Today Year Six were involved in a Mathematical Problem Solving Activity - Tetrahedron. It was organised by All Hallows as part of their transition activities.
Mr King and the Year Six teachers were blown away by the teamwork and discussions that took place during the session - Well done!
Year Six were thrilled to welcome Father Alfred Rebello into class today where he was interviewed about his reasons for being a priest, his commitment of service and his day to day life in the parish. We thoroughly enjoyed this visit and got a real insight into the life of one of our priests.
Thank you so much Father Alfred.
