Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

I would like to say a special thank you to Chauntel and Kitty, the driving forces behind our wonderful Auction Team this year, together with all of you who supported the event either through creating our amazing artwork, offering promises, bidding on items, running the bar or tidying up afterwards, ensuring that the whole night ran smoothly. We are extremely fortunate to have such a supportive network of parents and teachers at St. Joseph’s and we hope to share the final figure with you in next week’s newsletter.

Our Hockey athletes also demonstrated excellent sportsmanship and team skills, coming 12th out of approximately 25 London boroughs. They should be deservedly proud of their efforts, as are we.

On Wednesday and Thursday we are hosting our annual Easter Bonnet Parades with EYFS and KS1 On the 3rd April at 2pm and KS2 on 4th April, also at 2pm. Please note that this week (week ending 29th) is the last week of after-school clubs and you will be delighted to hear that school finishes at 1:30 pm on Friday 5th April. We are back at school on Tuesday 23rd April and summer uniform is to be worn - girls summer dresses only available from Ace Clothing Suppliers .

Jarvis is going home with Georges today because his teachers have all been impressed with how kind, caring and conscientious he is. Georges is hard working, polite, always tries his best and is a lovely boy to teach. Georges truly lives out our school mission statement every day and I know he will look after Jarvis very well over the weekend.

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

Dr Ninette Fernandes-Viana
Acting Headteacher
