This week, we have been helping others.
We have collected over 50 shoeboxes of presents which will be collected by T4U next week and delivered to young people in need. At the end of the week we got dressed up/wore our own clothes raising more than £200 for Children in Need. Thank you, children and families, for your generosity.
But it wasn’t just the young who benefitted from our children’s kindness. The elderly residents of Merton Place Care Home also had brightness brought to their afternoon by children in Years 5 and 6. In their topic the children have been learning about World War II and, as part of the work, learnt the wartime classic ‘We’ll meet again’ with sign language accompaniment. They visited Merton Place on Thursday and performed the song for the residents. Da iawn Blwydden 5 a 6.
As we race through November we are planning to make this ‘The Best St Joseph’s Christmas Ever’ - Cyngor Ysgol (School Council) have already come up with some fantastic plans. If you have any ideas to make it a really special time for children, staff and the wider school community, please let us know. (Ideally we are looking for ideas that don’t cost a lot of money or involve too much work resulting in grumpy children, parents/carers or staff!)
