On Thursday 24 November 2016 we were honoured to welcome Bishop Marcus to school to lead us in prayer and officially open the new EYFS/KS1 outdoor area.
Thank you to those parents and parishioners who attended the event. Those of who couldn’t attend missed a treat. Bishop Marcus was given a tour of the Reception, year one and year two classrooms by our Head Boy, Antonio and our Head Girl Emily.
They were fantastic ambassadors of our school and we are very proud of them.
Bishop Marcus talked and laughed with the children, inviting two of the children
to try on his cap!
We are delighted that Bishop Marcus said he was impressed with the school and also said he could tell St Joseph's was a happy school!
Thank you to Father Neil and Simon Atkinson (Chair of our Academy Council) for
being part of the ceremony and also thank you to Mrs Whan and Mrs Blythe for
the refreshments. It is wonderful to have such a caring school community.
