News & Events
On Friday 24th October we supported the wear it pink campaign. Children and adults came into school on this day wearing something pink and brought a donation of £1. A total of £244.50 was raised to support this cancer charity through donations and the sale of ‘pink’ cakes. Well done and thank you to everyone who took part and donated.
World Cup Day
Yet again, thanks to the generosity of our parents, the Friends of St Joseph’s raised over £500 (and there’s still more to be counted) by holding a sponsored World Cup Day. The money rasied by the Friends as in the past been used to purchase new football kits, playground equipment, a trip to a pantomime and a visit from a circus.
Circus comes to St Joseph the Worker
Splats circus came to visit the Foundation Stage this week (30th Apri). As Nursery didn’t go on the trip to the Panto in January, the Friends of St Joseph the Worker treated them to the visit. Children were taught to juggle, balance and many other circus skills. It was a fun day for both pupils and staff.
I am pleased to let you know that, following a nomination to the wider Merseyside Fairtrade Partnership, St Joseph the Worker has been successful in receiving a Certificate of Commitment for supporting Fairtrade in Merseyside.
Also four of our classes entered the Fairtrade Bake-Off Competition. The cakes were judged by several Mayors from Merseyside at Liverpool Town Hall. St Joseph the Worker had three runners up and Reception’s Cake (see photos below of cake and Reception pupils making it) was the overall winner of the compettion! What wonderful news, thanks to all the staff and children for their hardwork during the fortnight we look forward to receiving our certificates from Mrs Banana.
LFC Foundation tournament
We are all very proud of our football team who took part in the football tournament and WON!!! They played seven games against Monks Down, Green Bank, Anfield Juniors, Booker
Avenue, St Mary’s, Thomas Grey and Beacon. St Joseph’s won six out of the seven games. All boys played extremely well with Liam O’Brien, Kian Bell, Ben Doolan and Kian Carroll scoring goals. All boys had a great time and said it was an enjoyable and exciting experience . Thanks to Mr Moorhouse and Mr Crist for their hard work training the team.
Work from our Year 2 class was chosen to be entered into an Art competition at Hope University. At a private viewing last week it was announced that out of 40 entries, 5 pupils from year 2 were highly commended with Alex Brown being announced as the overall winner. Miss Thomas and Mrs Ryan went along with Alex and her family and were so proud to represent St Joseph the Worker. All five pupils were presented with a certificate and Alex was presented with a camera.
