Faith in Action
18.03.22 Well done to our Mini Vinnies who organised a fantastic fundraising event today in school. By taking part in a Walk Against Hunger for CAFOD, we have raised a fantastic £999.14 so far! It has been humbling to see the kindness and generosity of our school community during Lent. Thank you to everyone who sponsored the children. Please send in any remaining sponsor money next week.

Our Mini-Vinnies thought of ways to help others during Advent. They asked the other children to collect items needed by the Good Shepherd Ministry to help those less fortunate than themselves. They also wanted to bring some cheer to people who may be lonely this Christmas. They made Christmas cards and these have been sent to people within our parish community.
Well done, Mini-Vinnies for turning your concern into action.
Remembrance Day at St. Joseph's
We painted the cut off ends of bottles to make them look like poppies. These have been attached to our school fence to make a fantastic poppy display.
Well done to all the children involved, what a great way to remind our local community about 'Remembrance Day.'
Throughout the school, we learned more about Remembrance Day. We observed 2 minutes silence with our classes at 11am and gathered for a beautiful whole school Remembrance Day prayer service led by Year 6 after lunch.
The children also bought poppies to support the work of the Royal British Legion.
'At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.'
As a school the children brought in donations of food parcels for Harvest Festival. These were then given to the Good Shepherd Ministry in Wolverhampton, where they provide food and support to the homeless by 'creating sustainable pathways out of poverty to end homelessness in Wolverhampton.'
