Welcome to our school

Term 3 Welcome

Dear Parents and Guardians

Term 3 has been extremely busy –

Sacramental preparation has started for P3 – Reconciliation, P4 – First Holy Communion and P7 – Confirmation.  We welcomed parents, Fathers Keith and Emmet to presentations from the class  teachers on 19th February about how the children will be prepared.  We then had a lovely Inscription Mass for the Confirmandees on Sunday 3rd March at the Cathedral.

The Book Swap for World Book Day has been running for 3 days – thanks to our parents.

We celebrated Mass for Ash Wednesday on 6th March, with the children singing beautifully.

The children’s achievements continue: on 20th February, the Glee competition was a success with us moving to the final, we executed ourselves well in the Rotary Quiz on the same night and following the performance at Mock Court in the courthouse yesterday, we hope we will move to the final in Edinburgh, but regardless, the P7s did fantastically – what skills they have developed!

Generation Science workshops and Arts Across Learning drama sessions are providing great opportunities for the children to develop skills in a variety of contexts.

We are looking forward to finding out how our Mars Robots will be judged next week by reps from NASA.  Our basketball team is going from strength to strength with Mr Buchanan in the lead and Mrs West has moved from coaching gymnastics and is focusing on cross country runs!

At all times, through all our work, we seek to exemplify our vision, remember our values with a view to achieving our aims.

Come and visit us – we, take a hand, open a mind, touch a heart.

We are a vibrant, ambitious and inclusive school community which you will sense while scrolling down our pages.

    Good day,
    Please I would like to arrange school visitation for my son -Nicholas. He is currently in P3 at Kingswells Primary and I would like him to start at St. Joseph this August. We are practicing Roman Catholics and I feel he is not getting enough knowledge about his faith.
