Enterprising and Creative – Go St Joseph’s! Saint Joseph’s School Council

Well done to all those who entered the School Council competition to redesign our learning environment.

We have had some fantastic ideas ranging from willow walk dragon to repainting rainbow coloured roads in the side yard.

Outdoor play prizes have been awarded to the winning entry, one in all 4 classes.

Now watch this space! Year 1 have cleaned the flowerbeds ready for Year 2 to have a go at painting.

It is a risk. It is going to be messy. But we are ambitious capable learners.

We will do our best and God will do the rest!

Get your thinking caps on! Calling all Enterprising Contributors!




School Council met today to look at ideas for improving our school environment.

We have been thinking creatively to help make our school the best it can be. School Council will be reporting an update back to their classmates.

We respect the rights of all children to play. We are thinking about developing our world in a sustainable way.

Planning To improve our Play Area, School Council Meeting 12.02.2020

Schools’ Council, three children from Year 2, Year 1 and Reception, met on Wednesday to discuss plans for the future.

Our School castle will be taken down by Mr Coughlin during February Half Term. Children shared with Ms Beaumont and Mrs O’Leary their ideas from a previous meeting with Mrs Turner. If possible children would like to continue with the tree house idea and include slide, climbing ramp, periscope, climbing ladder. Ms Beaumont will discuss the possibility of installing 3 separate small playhouse towers with Mrs Coughlin. Watch this post!

School Council Focus- Know Your Rights!

All children have rights. These rights are the things that children need to be safe, healthy and happy. The United Nations has a list of all the rights that children have. This list is called the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC for short.

Our School Council, have been working on some of these rights. Please take some time to have a look at the display in the main hall.

Autumn Term

This term we will be working on Article 29

Your right to become the best that you can be.

and Article 6

You have the right to life and to grow up to be healthy.

This work will be underpinned by Jesus’ call to be Loving and Compassionate*
