Week Beginning - 5th October
Thanks to all our children for their superb effort this Harvest Fast Day. All the tinned/packaged/bottled goods will be donated to the Women and Children's refuge.
Although the children voted for the new 4-weekly lunch menus, we've very quickly recognised that the first two haven't been received well by the children. As a result we are changing the menu, and after discussions with the children we're going to use the two 'Wirral Favourites' options together with the existing 'Best of British' options. New 4-weekly menus will be sent out this week and will be available to download from the newsletter section opposite.
Congratulations to all our new school councillors. Particular congratulations to our new Head Boy Daniel, and our Head Girl Ruby.
Reminder that our Magical Maths workshops begin this Wednesday at 3.30pm. There are still places available. Please contact the school office.
Well done to KS2 for their active listening during an assembly by the Parliament Education Service! Also congratulations to Year 5 and Year 6 for successfully taking part in a parliamentary voting exercise.
Awards assemblies continue this Friday for F2/KS1 at 9.00am and KS2 at 3.00pm. All are welcome.
Reminder that our after school sports clubs, Gym and Hockey, provided by sports specialists continue this week.
It was lovely to see our wonderful children again - all looking very smart in their new uniforms!
The final amount raised at the summer fair was £975.92. Thank you all for attending and supporting the fair. A massive thanks to our parent and teacher association.
Recently all our children were engaged in a range of 'International' activities. We had Chinese, Bengali and Arabic storytelling workshops. Some of our children also learnt about life in the Mediterranean. A Polish policeman also visited our KS2 children. We finished our 'International' activities with some Arabic storytelling. It was a great event.
Our non-uniform day on Friday 1st May, in aid of three local charities, raised over £300. Thank you for your generosity.
3M and 4/3CS had a great experience visiting other places of worship last week - the children learnt a great deal and were able to appreciate how other faiths worhshipped and compare it to their own faith.
We welcomed Priti Mystry to our school on Tuesday 21st April. Priti shared with us many features of the Hindu religion including, art, dance and costume. One of the highlights was Miss Maher's children learning an Indian 'Stick Dance'. Lots of parents and carers of children in 2M attended and watched a great presentation of this dance. Thank you for your support.
A big thank you to our PTA who raised an amazing £547.76 during the Easter Fair. Again a big thank you for your support.
Great news!! St Joseph's has successfully achieved the UNICEF UK recognition of Commitment for a Rights Respecting School. This is true recognition that we are well on our journey towards the Rights Respecting School Award and our next step is to achieve Level 1.
