We are so grateful to our sports coordinator, Paula Brien, who was determined that we would have our cross country no matter what. Thank you to the parents who came forward to help. Thank you to the parents who watched from behind the fence, obeying our Covid restrictions. Personally, I found it really hopeful to come together in the best way we could to celebrate the children's endeavours. Fr Wayne has remarked that he felt this year even more so than past years as there was a deeper caring and support between the students. Well done to our place-getters. We also acknowledge those who ran solidly but were not place-getters. and those who walked because running was hard but they did it anyway. Fantastic resilience St Joseph's!
Thank you to your Home and School (Judith) who continues to heat up pies and provide Milo on a Wednesday lunchtime. Please bring your named pie wrapped in foil and a cup with your name on it and $1.00 for the milo.
