World Book Day

Filed under: General News — Mrs C at 8:40 pm on Thursday, March 6, 2014

We have really enjoyed this special day together.

Even though it was a wet and dismal morning, the smell of toast wafting around the corridors and the vision of parents and children reading together was enough to raise the spirits.

Thank you to all parents who supported in any way.

Maundy Thursday


This cross was created using stones from every child in school.

It will remain in school as a reminder of our Year of Faith celebrations.

Reconciliation in school

Filed under: General News — Mrs C at 1:19 pm on Monday, March 25, 2013


Today Father John came into school to offer Reconciliation to our children during lunchtime.

40 children gathered to receive this sacrament in a reverent and peaceful atmosphere.

Thank you to all those involved.

Reading Day

We have had the most wonderful start to our reading day. So many parents came into school to read with their children, it was so lovely to see.

Thank you to all of you who managed to come in. You made the day extra special for our children.

We are having a fantastic day! All of the teachers are learning how to be as good as some of our children at blogging.

Children, I may need some help with this.


Ash Wednesday

Today was a very special day in school.

During the morning we all took part in special liturgies to mark the beginning of Lent. Parents, grandparents and children praying and singing together.

Thank you to all family members who made this such a spiritual service.

A New Term

Filed under: General News — Mrs C at 4:29 pm on Friday, January 11, 2013

Welcome back to everyone and a happy new year to you all. Our first week has been very busy as we have finally moved into our new offices. The staffroom is wonderful.

I am sure that as we head towards Spring and the days start to get a little lighter, we will all be waiting for the better weather to arrive. However, with snow forecast for this weekend, make sure that you bring your warm coats to school next week.

Movie Star Visit

Filed under: General News — Mrs C at 8:03 am on Thursday, November 8, 2012

St. Joseph’s was honoured to welcome Jack O’Connell, movie star, to talk to the lower juniors about his career. Unfortunately, I did not get to meet him but the children and teachers said that he was very inspiring.

Children asked him a range of questions that he was happy to answer.

Thank you Jack for coming to our school. You have given the children a day that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Reading Breakfast

Filed under: General News — Mrs C at 9:47 am on Tuesday, October 23, 2012

We have just had the most wonderful start to the day. Parents and children sharing books together over a slice of toast. Reading is such a fabulous thing to do together and it makes it even better when there are opportunities to do this in school.

It fills my heart with joy watching this special time between parent and child.

Thank you parents for always being there with your smiles and words of encouragement. We love having you involved.
