Welcome to St Joseph's
All staff at St. Joseph’s seek to do the very best that we can for all of the children in our care. Our work is formed and led by our Mission Statement. The living out of this Mission Statement challenges each and every one of us on a daily basis. Providing the best possible quality care for children with different gifts and talents, continuing to strive for excellence and always looking to be witnesses of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be a tall order but it forms the daily life of our school.
Our School is a community, which celebrates the uniqueness and dignity of each individual. Everyone is made in the likeness of God, and has dignity that does not depend on age, race, gender, wealth or any other attribute.
As a community we depend on each other profoundly, our aim is that through example as well as by direct teaching we will teach our children that the most effective way to learn is by caring for others, nurturing our own talents, always doing our best and always being there to help others. We hope that your children will leave St. Joseph’s not only having achieved their full potential academically but also prepared to take on responsibility for their own learning and ready to use their talents for the good of others.
As you are the first and prime educators of your children we hope to involve you as much as possible in your child’s education. If, at any stage, you have concerns or suggestions do not hesitate to contact either the teaching staff or myself.
Welcome to St. Joseph’s.
7 Days of Creation
Day 1 - God created light and the light from the darkness calling light 'day' and darkness 'night'.
Day 2 - God created an expanse to separate the waters and called it 'sky'.
Day 3 - God created the dry ground and gathered the waters calling the dry ground 'land' and the gathered waters 'seas'. On day three God also created vegetation (plants and trees).
Day 4 - God created the sun, moon and the stars to give light to the earth to govern and separate the day and the night. These would also serve as signs to mark seasons, days and years.
Day 5 - God created every living creature of the seas and every winged bird, blessing them to multiply and fill the waters and the sky with life.
Day 6 - God created the animals to fill the earth. On day six, God also created man and woman (Adam and Eve) in his own image to commune with him. He blessed them and gave them every creature and the whole word to rule over, care for and cultivate.
Day 7 - God had finished his work of creation and he rested on the seventh day, blessing it and making it holy.
First Holy Communion
On Sunday 15th April some of our Year 3 children were part of our parish's First Holy Communion at St. Josephs Catholic Church.
The children that took part in the service from our school were Evie Finneran, Lewis Fox, Nikodem Lipinski, Freddie Patton, Emily Simmons and Erin Nash, alongside a few other children from other schools within the parish.
We would like to thank everyone involved in making this event a special one for all the children that took part in their Frist Communion.
