ST JOSEPH'S SCHOOL FAIR

Last Sunday, was a true celebration and testament of authentically living our school vision of being a Christ centred community. Our St Joseph’s School Fair strengthened and fostered that kinship spirit within and with our wider community, uniting together as we showcased fun, hospitality, friendship, warmth and joy. We were blessed with glorious weather as well as the many, many generous hands ~ showcasing hands of mercy as we worked together to achieve something great. I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to our beautiful students who shone on our hall stage displaying our very rich strength and dynamics in the area of the Arts ~ singing, music, dance. The students’ performances were inspiring and they shone as STARs. Our students also helped out serving on many of the stalls. I was also very impressed with their behaviour as I know you too would have been proud. Thank you to our staff who were available on the day to come along and man the incredible Art display and to showcase our beautiful new classrooms. My final and most incredible thank you is to you, our Parent community. Parents are very important stakeholders in the life of St Joseph’s and Sunday was a demonstration of the incredibly supportive, generous, humble and warm relationships we have with our parents ~ without your co-operation, collaboration and hard work, this day would not have been a success. To think, this idea of hosting a Fair to celebrate our community spirit was only decided on a little over 3 months ago….it does show you the power of positive and supportive parent and school links. I am blessed to have such good partnerships and it is an encouraging and affirming example to our children, when they see their parents working in synergy with the school. So on behalf of your children, thank you for continuing to strengthen, celebrate and affirm these positive partnerships.

 

NEW CLASSROOMS AND MASTER PLAN

Last Tuesday, was another day of logistics as we relocated our Years 5 and 6 to our new classrooms, relocated Visual Arts to a designated classroom, relocated another space for Learning and Teaching. As principal, it is very important I ensure our students have high quality resources to maximize their opportunities to strive, excel and reach their full potential. In the coming weeks, we are auditing furniture within the school to look at how best we can ensure we provide greater access to quality literature in all areas of our school. We are blessed with a very well-resourced library and as a team we are reviewing how we can maximize these resources in continuing to celebrate literature and a love of reading in our school.

Our next major step in our Master Plan is the redevelopment of both our tennis courts to be upgraded into multipurpose courts. This projected works will begin Week 5 of this term and is time lined for completion September school holidays. Our works along The Drive continue, you may have noticed further fencing and retaining walls to finish this entrance. Brisbane City Council are projected to begin their works early August. BCC will be looking at putting in a footpath and upgrading the road area to support safety of this entrance. I am also working in partnership with our Architects and Brisbane Catholic Education Building and Planning to look at the refurbishment of our three classrooms in Forrest block.
