We are very grateful to the parents of Eleanor in Sapphire Class who have very kindly donated a collection of BBC Wildlife magazines to the school.

These are now in the school library and available for our children to browse during lunch times and their weekly library sessions.

Many Thanks!

Book Donation

St Joseph's recently donated a selection of second-hand books to the Elora Destiny International School in Oyigbo, Nigeria. This was kindly organised by Miss Chinwenwa Ubani, mother of Callistus (Red Class) and Assumpta (Sapphire Class).

They have sent us their appreciation for the books and we are very pleased that they are enjoying them. 

We wish all the staff and children at the Elora Destiny International School well.

Book Fair

We had a fantastic Book Fair in our bright and spacious New Conference Room.  There was lots of room for both books and people! 

All classes had a chance to visit the Fair as class library sessions where held in the Book Fair and the children had chance to browse the books, make wish lists and listen to new stories.

It is always an exciting moment for the children as having our own Fair is like having a bookshop in school.

Congratulations to all who came to support us.
Together we raised just shy of £2000.00.

This means that we have a sum of £1,100.00 to spend on new books for our school library which means there will be books for all.

Thank you to everyone for being part of yet another successful Book Fair.

Next Book Fair in March 2019

Our Book Fair is on until Wednesday 7th November. 
It is in the New Conference Room (beside the School Office)
Drop-in before or after school and help get FREE BOOKS for our School Library.

Thank you for your support.
