Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

Many thanks once again to all of the parents of St Joseph’s who made the auction such an overwhelming success. We raised over £80,000 which is thanks to all of your support and generosity. I feel extremely privileged and grateful to be part of such a strong school community and I know I can rely on all of your support for our next event, the Summer Fair. This week we have been fortunate enough to have the Holy Week liturgies that KS2 have performed with such reverence and thoughtfulness for the rest of the school. The children explained their understanding of the events of this special time beautifully and it was wonderful to see so many parents joining us during these liturgies.

Thank you to Fr. Jeff who invited KS2 to pray the Stations of the Cross at Our Lady’s this week. The children were encourage to live their faith during the Easter period, taking full opportunity of their Lenten obligations to pray and grow closer to Jesus.

I would also like to extend my thanks to parents, pupils and teachers for their fantastic effort in our Easter Bonnet parades this week. Special thanks must be given to our judges, Priscilla Sharpe, Julia Nilson and Eileen Chao who performed their unenviable task with great attention to detail and thought. Finally, Melissa and Riley, our Head Boy and Head Girl were invaluable during Wednesday’s celebrations and also judged the overall staff winner. Much fun was had by all and the winners were:
