It was fantastic to see the return of a traditional St Joseph’s First Holy Communion Day. The sun shone, there were beautiful dresses, red ties and sashes, a full church, photographs, an after party in school and a beautiful cakes.
Congratulations to all the children and thank you to all those who prepared the children, organised and participated in the mass and prepared and served at the party.
It was a joy to see the parish returning to normal. Year 2, get ready, it will be your turn next year!
What a fantastic event! The sun was shining and the wind not quite strong enough to blow down the bunting. The children loved their picnic lunch outside with party bags, music and special royal cakes and biscuits.
A massive thank you to the cooks for going to so much extra effort. The children loved it.
We are sorry to say that our hardworking Caretaker, Gary Williamson, has decided to call it a day. His dedication to St Joseph’s, over many years, has been second to none. His pride in our school and his care for the building and grounds has made a huge difference. He will be impossible to replace. We know he will be greatly missed by staff, parents and pupils. On behalf of everyone, Gary, thank you for all you have done and we wish you all the best.
Here’s a reminder of him in action during the first lockdown https://fb.watch/dc9Ys4sRwT/
As I said, he will be impossible to replace but we do need to look for a new Caretaker, so if you know anyone who may be interested, ask them to contact school.
