Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

The new half term has started with a real buzz thanks to a brilliant art week organised by Mrs Robinson. All of the children from years 1-6 have enjoyed a visit to the Tate this week and they have all come back to school with lots of ideas and creative energy. Everybody has also enjoyed a plate painting workshop and it has been great to see the children enjoying art and experiencing the pleasure of making something beautiful.

Congratulations to our swimmers in key stage 2 who performed marvellously in the swimming gala on Thursday. Out of 16 schools we came 4th. The children had a great day and were a credit to the school.

Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, marking the start of lent and the children in Key Stage 2 will be attending mass at Our lady’s at 10am. We are always grateful to parents who accompany the children on the walk to and from church.

The Auction is now only a few weeks away and it is really important that you donate your promises. Please think about what you can contribute - this could be babysitting; hosting a dinner party; a taxi service; a week in a holiday home. Be creative and contribute! The success of the auction depends on the input of everyone. Enter your promises here.

Please remember to join us on Monday in the hall from 8:30am to welcome Mrs Wilson to St Joseph’s. This will be an opportunity to have a coffee and say hello.

Many of you may be aware of proposals to move Victoria Coach station from its current location to Royal Oak. Royal Oak is just south of Harrow Road and 0.8 miles from the school.

14 million travellers use Victoria coach station each year and the negative impact on our local area and the school children and their families in terms of big increases in pollution, crime, noise and congestion is very significant.

I have included links to the Westminster Labour and Conservative pages who are both petitioning against these proposals.

May God bless you and keep you and your family safe.

Mrs K Husain
Head teacher
