Alton Castle Retreat Day (25.10.18)

 Year 6 were wonderful on their Confirmation retreat day.They learnt lots about the importance of the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit, which they will be receiving, when they make their Confirmation. The children were all very prayerful and reflective, as they talked about their own personal faith journey together. All of the children had lots of fun, taking part in lots of exciting activities!



House Captain News! (20.9.18)

Congratulations to all of the children who presented their speeches and posters, within the house captain elections. You all did amazingly well! I am so proud of all of your efforts and hard work! 


I am looking forward to seeing how our house captains and vice captains can set a terrific example within St. Joseph's and to all of our younger pupils in school.

Autumn Term (14.9.18)

A big well done to Y6 who shared a really important message in their class assembly about new starts and changes. The children reflected on how we are always guided by Jesus no matter what path or obstacles we may face. As well as this, the children made a promise at the start of the new school year about how they will be a follower of Jesus throughout this school year.
