Nursery Sports Day will take place tomorrow, whatever the weather!
If the School Field is still too wet following the recent rain, the Nursery Sports will take place either on the Infant Playground or in the School Hall (if it is raining).
The Nursery Sports will commence at 10:30am as advertised. Please enter via the Main Entrance/School Office from 10:15am.
Having looked at the weather forecast for the next 24 hours we have decided to cancel tomorrow’s Sports Day.
The forecast for the next 12 hours is continuous rain and although it is forecast to clear later in the morning, the School Field will still not be fit for purpose, especially after the heavy rain today.
Sports Day will now take place on Wednesday 12th July.
What a wonderful Prayer Service we enjoyed in the School Garden this morning…despite the rain!
The boys and girls in Morning Nursery and Reception told us all about God’s creation and how important it is to look after this precious gift that we have been given.
Fr. John also reminded us that the God loves each one of us the most out of all that he created.
Many thanks to all of those parents/friends who braved the weather to enjoy this special service…and of course to Fr. John for leading the service and all of the staff concerned in preparing the children so well.
As part of our Fitness Month, today, Daniella has been teaching all of the boys and girls a special dance routine which they all performed together on the School Field at the end of the day.
I’m sure that all of the parents present will agree with me that the boys and girls really ‘got into the groove’ and put on a wonderful performance…two in fact!
Many thanks to Daniella for her marvellous work during the course of the day and to Miss Ridley and Mrs. O’Connor for organising this super initiative.
Parents…why not ask your child to teach you the moves?!
Bonus Freeze Pop Sale – to celebrate the nice weather we will be holding a Freeze Pop sale in the Junior Playground after school today. Keep bringing in those pennies as we will try to hold sales as and when the sun shines!
PTA Meeting – a meeting will take place tomorrow, Tuesday 27th June, at 6pm in the School Library to finalise arrangements for the Summer Fete. As usual, all parents/carers are welcome to attend.
Summer Fete Mufti Day – the Mufti Day will take place on Friday 30th June 2017. We ask that children come into school dressed in their own clothing (no football/rugby/Gaelic team shirts pleae!).
Instead of asking for money, we are asking for donations of full bottles of drink – be it wine, beer or something more exotic! These donations will then be used to stock our Bottle Tombola.
We also welcome donations of unwanted gits (these can be passed to a PTA member whenever possible) and cakes (which should be donated on Friday 30th June/morning of Saturday 1st July). Pkease note that the school has a NO NUT policy so we would be grateful if you could ensure that any cakes donated (both home-made and shop bought) do not contain any nuts.
Summer Fete – will take place on Saturday 1st July 2017. You should have received a letter outlining our plans for this year’s Summer Fete but if you have any questions or wish to lend a hand please speak to a member of the PTA – they will be in the playgrounds after school gathering volunteers so please sign up!
Sponsored Bounce Pledges – please can any outstanding Sponsored Bounce monies be sent in as soon as possible as we are in the process of finalising the certificates.
As always, we thank you for your continued support.

The winners of this week’s Attendance Award are Year 1 with 100% attendance. In second place are Reception with 99.3% attendance, and in third place are Year 2 with 96.7% attendance.
Every week, the teachers from Year 1 to Year 6 are asked to chose a child who has produced a super piece of writing that week to receive a writing award!!

This week’s chosen ‘writers’ are:
Year 1 – Melissa
Year 2 – Joseph
Year 3 – Matilda
Year 4 – Charis

On Wednesday, our Netball and Football teams took part in a Lee Valley Catholic Schools Afternoon of Sport at St. Mary’s Catholic High School, Bishop’s Stortford.
All of the boys and girls performed valiantly (despite the heat) and did themselves and St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School proud!
Many thanks to Miss Ridley and Mrs Jess for accompanying the teams and supporting them throughout the course of the afternoon.
