It has been an exciting and innovative term. Congratulations to our new Preschool and Reception children who have just completed their first term of school here at Saint Joseph’s. Whenever I walk into the Preschool and Reception classes they are full of life and curiosity. So much learning has been achieved over the last term for our youngest students.
Throughout the school the learning has been rich and innovative, we are lucky to have a dedicated staff who have differentiated their teaching to cater for all levels of learning to achieve student outcomes.
Last week I attended the Year 7 Leadership and Formation Day. It was a wonderful day of learning and formation. The Year 7 students should be proud of their level of maturity, attitude to learning, ability to take risks and overall their general enthusiasm and positive attitude to their own future as responsible and motivated citizens. The last part of the Formation Day was spent at the Mega Adventure Park, we were all motivated to take risks and go beyond our comfort zone, this included my comfort zone, I attempted to combat the first level of risk and physicality. The Year 7’s outdid my level of ability and many were determined to take the highest level of risk. Well done Year 7s, I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with all of you.
Our latest newsletter is a celebration of our term and your will see many photos which document and capture the amazing experiences which we offer at St. Joseph’s Memorial School.
Throughout this week we have had Holy Week celebrations and reflections on the Easter Story and preparation for this significant liturgical celebration. All classes have shown deep respect and understanding of this story which is pertinent to our Catholic Faith Tradition. Thank you all for your preparation, participation and to the parents who have come along to both campuses to support these reflections.
Over the next week all families in the school will receive an official invitation from the Mayor of Norwood Payneham and Saint Peters to attend a Civic Ceremony. This ceremony is to mark the 75th Anniversary of Saint Joseph's Memorial School Norwood. Please look out for this invitation and further information about this significant event.
