Father Christmas comes to the Fair!

Friday, 7 December 2018

Father Christmas and his Elf!

On Friday 7th December we held our Christmas Fair here at St Joseph’s!

There were chances to have a go on various tombola’s including: chocolate tombola, teddy tombola, gift and bottle tombola’s, a toy stall, a café to buy a drink and a biscuit and our well loved BIG raffle with excellent prizes!

As well as the stalls we were visited by Father Christmas who came to see the children and give them some lovely gifts!

Our new shelter!

Our new shelter

On Tuesday 14th November our new parent shelter was fitted for parents collecting children from Year 2.

We always try to think about the needs of parents and waiting outside in the rain is something we hope our new shelter makes a little easier!

We now have shelters for parents at the front of the school, at the Year 1 and 2 entry and Year 1 exit points, Year 2 exit point and at the EYFS entrance and exit.

Hopefully these shelters make waiting in the bad weather a little easier!

The children pray the Rosary each day during October and now in addition to the teacher’s large rosary beads the children have lovely multi-coloured rosary beads to use as they pray together too.

Our new award!

In July 2018 the British Council based in London awarded St Joseph’s with the International School Award!
