St. Josephs Annual School Clean Up took place on Monday the 25th of April. Every class was designated an area of the school to clean and tidy! The students worked very hard to pick up all the rubbish and make the school look spick and span :)
Eight pupils will be confirmed tomorrow in the Church of the Sacred Heart. We wish them and their families an enjoyable day. The pupils are from Junior 5, Junior 6 and senior 1 so a lot of staff have been busy preparing them for this special day.
Pupils who recently completed the advanced course in photography will be taking studio photographs of the pupils who have received Confirmation and they will also be offering to take family portraits. We are looking forward to seeing the photographs.
It is hard to believe that the last term is upon us. It will be longer than usual due to the early Easter. Special Olympics will get a good deal of attention in the next few weeks. We have eleven pupils entered for an Aquatics competition taking place in Leisureland on April 20th and fourteen pupils registered for Track and Field events in Dangan on May 11th. As always it is freat to see so many of our pupils having the opportunity to participate in sport.
Special Olympics are having its annual fund-raising day on Friday April 22nd so don't forget to give generously to this very worthy cause.
