Dear Parents

We have now re-organised ourselves for tomorrow.  You will shortly receive an email with the reorganised group information.  But very simply and to avoid any problems with emails the arrangements are as follows:
All sibling groups due to attend today, Wednesday 12th August, will now attend on FRIDAY 14th.
All other children due to attend today, Wednesday 12th August, will now attend on THURSDAY 13th.
Transport unit has been advised and will make arrangements for pickup as before.
P3 classrooms in the basement are being dried out and the children will be elsewhere in the building.  I will email you separately.
Thanks for your understanding.
We really are looking forward to tomorrow, the little faces will definitely brighten our day, even if the clouds don’t lift!

Dear Parents, thank you for your patience, all being well, we will open again tomorrow.

We have almost finished our planning for a refreshed return.  We are checking our plan with Aberdeen City Council to ensure the new plan meets the conditions as set out in our return to school risk assessment.

Once finalised, we will post updated information here and send individual emails out to the group affected to day.

    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.

    My name is Ken. I am member of the Aberdeen African Choir and the chairman of the concert committee. We are planning a musical concert / Album launch on the first weekend in June (06/06/2020). I wondered if we could book the hall for the day. I recall we used it back 2011.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

      My apologies for the delay in getting back to you. Obviously, in the current circumstances we won’t be able to make any arrangements, however, please get back in touch again when the restrictions are lifted.
