With St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and St Joseph as our guides, we at St Joseph's Primary School aim to foster an inclusive environment for all students to strive and achieve to the best of their ability. The school community endeavours to be a place where students live according to the example of Jesus as conveyed through the Gospels. At St Joseph's we value justice and peace for all by living honest, loyal, respectful, diligent, patient and faithful lives.
Miss Ivey and Year 3/4 dedicated a Liturgy on Remembrance Day to honour the soldiers who died as a result of war protecting our nation. The Liturgy took place in the new ANZAC garden. School leaders attended the town service.
The students were involved in a percussion performance with John Ratley from Planet Rhythm. John shared his years of percussion and rhythm experience with the students and had them use different percussion and rhythm instruments.
The Annual Awards Night is on Friday 21st November, commencing at 6pm, at the Cultural Centre. All families and friends are invited to the P&F Christmas BBQ which will follow at the school. The P&F have kindly provided a book for each student to receive as a gift from Santa. If you would like your non-school child to receive a gift please leave a gift wrapped book, with the child's name on it, at the school office by Wednesday 19th November.
RED DAY FOR DANIEL
Students supported Red Day for Daniel with a gold coin donation raising $106.10 for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation whose aim is to raise awareness of child safety, protection and harm prevention.
The Book Fair saw sales of over two thousand dollars. It was wonderful to see students so keen and enthusiastic. As a result the school library was able to order new books and resources for next year. Thank you to everyone for their support and especially Mrs Tindall and Mrs Gunning for their organisation.
