A Big Thank You and Well Done

Certificates were presented to pupils for their hard work and another year of success for the following –

Maths Challenge

Well done to all our P6 and P 7 pupils who persevered and did so well in the Scottish Mathematical Challenge – three rounds, each with three challenging questions, spaced throughout the year. You all did us proud!



This year the Eco Reps did us all proud by successfully achieving our third Green Flag, restocking and looking after our Wormery and continuing to promote an Environmentally Friendly ethos within our school.




The Fairtrade Reps this year continues to build our reputation for taking our Fairtrade responsibilities very seriously with a Big Brew, selling Fairtrade uniform, attending a conference on the UN goals and a well run tuck shop.IMG_3396


Digital Leaders

St Joseph’s first ever Digital Leaders helped to create our ‘Illuminating Learning’ videos, taught classes how to use new apps like Book Creator and Adobe Spark video. They reached out to classes to introduce the robots ‘Dash & Dot’, helped to use coding apps like Scratch Jr across the school. They have been an immense help in organising our class sets of iPads.



If you want to participate in one of our groups next year ,then look out for the application invitations on the blog after the summer holidays!

Infants enjoy dancing lesson.

The infant department were treated to a dance lesson

from two of our P5/6 pupils.

Sam Brown and Mia Paoli spent time choreographing a dance to a Chart Topping track and then taught all the moves to the Infant Department out in the lovely sunshine on Friday morning.

Looks like a lot of fun!IMG_3408 IMG_3407 IMG_3406

P1 & Nursery Highland Games

P1/Nursery Highland Games

A big well done to all of our Nursery morning and afternoon boys and girls and all of P1 who participated in their very own Highland Games this week at Harlaw Playing Field.

We cheered and clapped for our Animal Families, ran races and even tossed the caber! We had so much fun!

Mr Gauld, a grandparent of  current pupils very kindly played the bagpipes for us and then piped us on our way back to school.

The boys and girls have been working hard on this 6 week transition project which helps prepare our Nursery children for P1.

Thank you to all parents who came along and cheered us on. We hope you enjoyed the morning as much as we did.
