Six of our staff took part in St. Joseph's very first Erasmus trip this October. We travelled to Croatia to visit another special school. and learned lots. We took part in art therapy, ceramics and music classes and observed other classes in progress. We also visited a mainstream school and learned about how the special and mainstream schools work together to support each other. We are looking forward to our next trip in the new year, hopefully Northern Ireland in February.
