Dear Parents, Carers and Friends Time has flown so quickly. We have one more week before half term. Over the last few weeks the children have been learning about so many different things and it has been a pleasure to see them flourish. It has been good to see the Reception classes, Red and Rainbow, settle so well into their routine and it has been gratifying to welcome and getting to know those families new to the school.     We had a fantastic Macmillan coffee morning where we raised £1,000 for such a good cause. Thank you to everybody who donated cakes and prizes. You made the morning so special and such fun. Thank you from all of us at St Joseph’s. On that note, over half term one of our staff, Jane Crawford, is going to ‘Brave the Shave’ in aid of raising money for Macmillan. If there is anyone who would like to donate to the cause please do so at the school office. Also, don’t be surprised if you see Mrs Crawford with no hair!!   Our half term will start on Friday the 19th October. There will be no school on this day. Children will return to school on Monday 29th October. Over this half term we will be having some work done to the main playground toilets. This work will start the week beginning the 15th October and will last 3 weeks. Did you know our school is a Grade 2 listed building and was built by the famous architect Leonard Stokes? Leonard Stokes went on to be one of the most respected Victorian architects and was the President of the Royal Institute of British Architects for 10 years.   School Dinners We are changing our school dinner provider directly after half term. We have chosen a company called Caterlink to work with us. Watch this space for updates!   Meet the Police Over half term there are some local events taking place in Brandon Park, Peckham Rye Park and Burgess Park. Please look at the notice boards outside of the Junior School gate or in the Infant playground for more information.   Uniform Please make sure you name your child’s uniform. Once again we have mounds of lost property. Can you also please ensure your children are wearing school shoes rather than trainers? Trainers and plimsolls are for PE and after school sports…

Dear Parents and Carers This is the fourth week back at school and everyone is getting into the routine of school life. It has been an interesting few weeks with lots going on to make the school as good as it can be. We have been ensuring that the children’s behaviour is ‘impeccable’ through high expectations and ask you to reinforce this at home. We have already had a school ‘health check’ where we have looked at the quality of work in books and over this year we will be working on ensuring our curriculum is the best it can be.   Say Hello! Say goodbye! We have welcomed a new member of staff to the Infant School, Ms Michelle Ruane. I am sure you will give her a true St Joseph’s welcome. We say goodbye to Ms Steadman who goes on maternity leave and we wish her every happiness over the coming months.   School Office At the moment we only have two members of staff in the office. Please be patient when you waiting especially in the morning. The office staff are working hard to make sure everyone is seen promptly and their queries answered.   Breakfast Club We have started our breakfast club. It is running smoothly thanks to a great team of staff. The children have toast, cereal and juice and can play with their friends. Breakfast Club starts at 7.45am and the children are then escorted to the playground for 8.30am. It costs £3. WE STILL HAVE SOME PLACES AVAILABLE. Please talk to a member of the office staff if you are interested in using this facility. We will be working with a charity called Magic Breakfast and Family Action to support our breakfast club – watch this space for more news. The children look great in their uniform but we find there is a lot of lost property. I am sure this is very annoying and expensive for you. Please make sure you name your child’s uniform. If they lose it we will know who it belongs to.   Macmillan Coffee Morning We had our Macmillan Coffee morning and raffle today. Thank you all for being so generous with your donations of cake and having such a lovely morning. We will keep you posted and let you know how much we have raised for such a good cause.   Letting us know… Sometimes life…
Friday 28th September - The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

Friday 28th September - The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

Thursday 20th September 2018   Dear Parents/Carers, The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, will be taking place all over the country on Friday 28th September. Here at St Joseph’s, we are planning our own event and we will be holding our coffee morning here in the school hall between 9am – 10am and everybody is welcome! The coffee morning is Macmillan's biggest fundraising event, and they are asking people across the UK to hold coffee mornings and raise money for people living with cancer. What's it all for? “There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2020, it will be 4 million people, and we want to be there for them all. One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face. Our goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, we’re there for friends and family too. We are Macmillan” In 2017, our St Joseph’s coffee morning raised the staggering amount of £842 which was fantastic! We are asking that you, the parents, carers and staff of our school community, donate cakes for this event. They can either be homemade or bought from the shops but it would be a great opportunity to get those baking trays out and make a special cake to make our coffee morning truly memorable. Cakes would be very welcome either on the Thursday or early on the morning of the 28th September so we can set them up in the hall ready for you all to come in at 09.00. Please make sure that you write your child’s name and class on your tins so we can make sure that they get back to you. Tickets cost £2 and are on sale in our school office which is at the main entrance to the school. There will also be a raffle all week and this will be drawn at the coffee morning, so please bring some money for tickets. Please support our coffee morning and buy your tickets as soon as possible. Collection boxes will also be in the front hall for those of you who perhaps are unable to come to the…
