During Term Two, all St Joseph’s students have been involved in doing some cooking via the Cook in a Box program. Cook In A Box is a way for primary schools to provide children with basic cookery skills enabling them to make healthy food choices for life! All ingredients are provided to the school in a box.
St Joseph’s School would like to thank the Shire of Yilgarn for funding received via the Community Funding Program. Our P&F Association applied for funding to purchase garden tools and equipment as well as equipment for the early childhood area. All of the equipment purchased will be used to improve the grounds of the school.
Thank you again, the support to our School is greatly appreciated.
On Friday, 11th May, St Joseph’s School invited all Mums and Grandmothers of students to a Mother’s Day Morning Tea. We had a lovely morning, which also included the Merit Assembly for Week 2. Thank you to everyone who was able to come along and also thank you to our staff who provided the yummy morning tea.
On Thursday 10th May, the Year 1-2 classroom pampered their Mum’s by doing their nails, giving them a massage, decorated cupcakes and they also did some painting activities together. Well done to all of the students, Miss Reeve and Mrs Pedrin – it was a great morning for the Mums.
Thank you to Sienna who represented St Joseph’s School at the 2018 Southern Cross Anzac Day Service. Sienna laid a wreath and also read a prayer at the service.
On Thursday 12th April, St Joseph’s held a remembrance balloon release in memory of our former student Joel Guerini, who tragically died on 18th April 2015. One of Joel’s favourite colours was orange and each year this balloon release has enabled our staff, students and families to share their memories of Joel and even write short messages to Joel which are attached to the balloons.
During the last four weeks of Term, our students have been lucky enough to enjoy some tennis coaching sessions. A huge thank you to Lib Irving who has been passing on her tennis expertise to our students. The students learnt so much from Lib and thoroughly enjoyed each coaching session.
On Tuesday 10th April, our staff and students had a great time enjoying water activities for our Water Fun Day. Although it was a little bit cold, the kids had a great time. A bit of fun to finish off Term One.
On Tuesday 27th March we had our biggest turn out this term at Junior Joeys. The children all had a great time together. During the session the children made some wonderful loud music with the instruments. This was followed by an interactive “lift the flap story” about collecting eggs and then we created some colourful feathery chickens.
It was great to see some new faces and grandparents getting involved. We hope to see you all back again next time.
On Thursday 15th March, we were lucky to have a group of 1st year medical students from Notre Dame University visit our school and provide a Teddy Bear Hospital for our junior students’ teddy bears. Happy to report that all teddies are fit and healthy! Thank you for visiting our school. The kids loved it.
On Friday, 2nd March 2018, students participated in a World Day of Prayer Service. Parents and members of the community were invited to attend. Thank you to those who were able to attend, in particular Mrs Janet Hatch who provided information for the prayer service.
