Principal's Message

News Blog
Welcome to our very first weekly news and learning blog.  This blog compliments our 'Pulse' news sheet that will come home to every child each Thursday instead of the hard copy newsletter.  We hope that all families enjoy this new form of communication.  We aim to set up a computer in ruma koru ,our community room, for families who may not have access to a computer.

Yr 8 Mass
Special thanks to Mr Moore and the Year 8's who lead our school mass so well today.  Their dramatisation of the gospel focusing on Jesus the Good Shepherd was presented skillfully.  It was a reminder for all of us to know, understand and care for those around us.

Rugby Success
Congratulations to our 9 & 10 Year old rugby team who won the Junior Black's Challenge Shield last weekend. We are very proud of you all.  Now that the winter sports season is underway, a big thank you goes out to all of our coaches and managers.  Without them, the large range of sporting codes we offer at St Joseph's would not be possible.

Yr 8 Leaders
Our Yr 8's house captains started a Zumba initiative this week.  They lead some sessions before school and one session during a rainy lunchtime this week.  I was impressed with the way our Yr 8 leaders organised and lead these sessions.

Please type your email address in the box on the right to receive a message each time this blog is updated. You can also use the translate tool to read the text in another language. Please let us know if you have any other ideas to improve our communication with you.
