Our choir recently entered the Lea Valley Schools Choir Competition by sending in recordings of two of their favourite songs. This morning we heard the wonderful news that we are finalists in the competition!
In fact, there was so much talent on show this morning we had to start half an hour earlier so that all of the acts could perform!
As well as a change in the starting time there was also a change to the format with ‘The Voice’ judges making a special appearance…Jennifer, Olly, Sir Tom and Will.i.am looked so young!
As always, we were treated to a vast array of acts including singing, dancing, musicianship, comedy and much more besides…including a karate demonstration!
Whilst there can only be one winner, it is true to say that all of the boys and girls who performed today are winners simply for having the courage to perform in front of such a large (and appreciative!) audience.
After much deliberation the judges’ decision was as follows:
2nd: Steve and Davicd
Well done to all concerned…and a final well done to Elissa and Laura who did a superb job of hosting today’s show!
This morning, as part of their Lenten observance, all of the classes are visiting our beautiful Stations of the Cross which have been set out in the School Hall.
The children are being guided through the passion of Jesus at an appropriate level for their age and will subsequently have the opportunity to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made so that we may enjoy eternal life.
The Stations of the Cross will also be on view during the Year 3/Year 4 Holy Week Service on Thursday morning (9:15am).
Yesterday afternoon it was a privilege to welcome some of the elderly members of the parish to St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School for a little bit of well-deserved pampering!
After enjoying a dress rehearsal of the year 3/Year 4 Holy Week Service our special guests were treated to 5* treatment from the Chaplaincy Team as they enjoyed a delicious Afternoon Tea served up by Mrs O’Connor.
We look forward to inviting our special guests back for further events in the future.
During the course of this week, various classes have been holding their Topic Sharing Afternoons (or Mornings!) to celebrate the successes and achievements of all of our boys and girls in their spring term topics.
Such occasions are truly special and provide parents with a deeper insight into their children’s learning in relation to their topic work, as well as having lots of fun too!
This afternoon, as part of their topic sharing afternoon, our Year 4 parents and their children were treated a to delicious ‘fish supper’ as they celebrated their Blue Abyss topic.
Many thanks and compliments to the ‘Head Chef’, Mrs O’Connor…the empty plates afterwards said it all!
