Week Commencing 7th January 2019

Happy New Year from all the staff at St Joseph’s Prep.

We hope that 2019 is a happy, healthy and prosperous year for you.

On behalf of all the staff I would like to thank you for all your Christmas wishes and very kind and generous gifts; we were all very appreciative of the many lovely gifts and cards which we received.

The theme for this term is ‘Care for the Planet’ This theme will be reflected in our assemblies and in the work which we do in PSHCE.

This term we are also taking part in the Edmund Rice European Congress 31st January and 1st February and as part of this the whole school will be focussing on ‘Care of the Planet’ in all its facets. Staff have been challenged on an individual basis to do something which ‘makes a difference’ and we have staff supporting Night Shelters, being involved in ‘Open Door’, knitting blankets, to name but a few of the activities.
I will keep you informed about this as the time approaches.

This week we welcome Miss Biggs as the teacher in Pre Prep 2. Miss Biggs has already worked with the Pre Prep children and we look forward to her joining the staff team.

We also extend a warm welcome to our new starters and their families and hope that they very quickly feel part of the St Joseph’s Prep School Family.

This term we have become a ‘Clay School’ and we are looking forward to being involved in using clay within school and being involved in some City-wide clay projects-our thanks to Mr and Mrs Otter for facilitating this.

This week Prep 4 will be commencing swimming at Trentham Academy’ on Thursday 10th January.
We look forward to another busy term.

Every day is an ‘Open Day’. Please encourage friends and family to make an appointment to view our school.
