Win a school playground – please share!

Our school could win some new playground equipment but we really need your help!

We collect waste for recycling through Terracycle and they are running a competition with Febreze, Fairy and Tesco. The winning school will receive new playground equipment.

The winning school will be the one with the most online votes!

That’s where we need your help!

Simply go to Terracycle win a playground and register your vote for St Joseph’s RC Primary! Voting is open from 20th June until 23:59 on 24th July 2018. Only one vote per email address is permitted.

Please do not hesitate to go online and vote for our school – and feel free to encourage friends and family to vote too!!

We will keep you updated on how we are doing on the school leaderboard!

Please help us to improve our playground facilities by taking a couple of minutes to vote.

Thank you.




Second Bike Sale

Don’t forget, there is a second hand bike sale at the Summer Fair this weekend.

Please bring in any unwanted bikes to school on Friday morning or Saturday morning. We will sell them for you at our Bike Shed, taking a % of the sale price to Parent Council Funds, and returning the rest to you, if the bike sells.

Please then come and visit the Bike Shed to buy any next size up bikes that you might need. There will also be the chance of a rickshaw ride round the playground.

See you then.
