Congratulations to all our Year 9 pupils who have received a Headteacher’s award for their academic success.
Well done to Caldew School for winning the most number of rounds in a recent Maths challenge, hosted by St Joseph’s School. Pupils spent the morning successfully completing a variety of challenging , imaginative and demanding mathematical puzzles. Congratulations to all pupils involved.
St Joseph’s are the host school today, for a Maths Feast Event. We are pleased to welcome pupils from Nelson Thomlinson School, University Technical College and Caldew School. This is part of a National Further Maths Programme bringing together the most talented Year 10 mathematicians across the county.
Several pupils who regularly attend our extra curricular table tennis club, met Mrs Bell at the Whitehaven Youth Harbour Project to play lots of table tennis matches in their fantastic facility. The fixture was against the Whitehaven club from 5.15pm to 7.15pm on Wednesday 29th March. The first hour was dedicated to doubles matches and the second hour was singles matches. All pupils had a great time and met lots of new people. The standard of play was excellent! Well done to all involved.
Use of the outdoors as a ‘classroom’ makes a major contribution to pupil personal growth, social awareness and helps develop skills for life and the world of work. There is also a great deal of intrinsic enjoyment and satisfaction to be experienced from participation in outdoor activities. Here at St Joseph’s, we are passionate about this and seek to provide students with as many outdoor learning experiences as possible.
Thank you to Mel Pinnock who was chosen to read the prayer for the first time.
