Special and Memorable Events

Our school calendar is very busy and rarely does a week go by without an event of some description. Spiritual, musical and dramatic performances are held throughout the year and recent joys to see have included the recent Year Six production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', the annual Passion Play held in the church and the Poetry Recital.

The various links given will guide you through the great wealth of activities and events which take place at St Joseph's during a school year.

 

Special topic days for the children are great opportunities to dress up and bring topics to life, such as Pirate Day in Reception, Victorian Day in Year Five and Tudor Day in Year Six.

  Our 'Fitness Fridays' are tremendously popular days when all children participate in a range of health and sports activities. Recent sporting experiences include ballet, zumba and football tournaments.  

    
In the autumn term, we celebrate National Grandparents Week.  Children are thrilled to welcome their grandparents to school to hear a story, for tea and cakes, to go to mass together and to take  them on a guided tour of the school  

Annually we celebrate the varied cultures of our school families. In the last few years, we have had wonderful celebration days of the Filipino and Hispanic cultures.  In July 2013, the children celebrated the World UNESCO day.
