    Staff Rainbow Video

    Dear Parents/Carers and Children,
    I hope you are all safe and well. I'm sure, like many of you, I was out last night applauding our amazing key workers, recognising the incredible work they are doing in our hospitals, care homes and other frontline services during these incredibly challenging times.
     
    As we come to the end of the fifth week of lockdown, with no indication of when schools will reopen, I want to pass on to you my thanks and the thanks of all the staff for the amazing job you are doing in engaging with the home learning and sharing examples of the children’s work with us. The longer this goes on, the harder it is for the children who will be missing school, their friends and their teachers and the novelty of the situation will be wearing off. Please keep up the great work and I look forward to the time when we are all back together as a school community. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or your child's teacher.
     
    Thank you to everybody who sent in videos of themselves reading or doing keepie uppies, please continue to send these in but my new challenge to you is to bake, cook or prepare an edible family treat (biscuits, cake, bread, fruit salad, etc). It is my son's birthday today so we made a cake for him - I have attached a photo, although my wife might have something to say about it being MY attempt!! Once completed you can send a picture of it to our Twitter page: @stjosephsharrow or email it to the St. Joseph's challenges account: stjoeschallenges@stjosephs.harrow.sch.uk

    Finally, the staff have made a video for you all - I hope you enjoy it!! Please click on the video below to view it - make sure you watch right till the end.
     
    Have a lovely weekend and stay safe.
    God bless, Mr. Briggs

  • St Joes Challenges Easter message from Mr Briggs

    03rd April

    St Joes Challenges Easter message from Mr Briggs

    Dear Children, Parents and Carers,

    I hope you are all safe and well. It is very strange writing to you today as I would normally be wishing you a lovely and relaxing holiday and saying what a busy week we have had. We all hope and pray that we return to normal as soon as possible.

    As it is the Easter break, your teachers have not set you any specific work but they have uploaded some activities you might want to try on dB Primary. In the videos sent on school ping and uploaded on our twitter page, I have also set you some challenges that you might want to take part in. If you do want to take part, I have created an email account (stjoeschallenges@stjosephs.harrow.sch.uk) for you to send your responses to.

    I hope you get a chance over the coming weeks to sit together to take hope and inspiration from the true meaning of Easter - Jesus resurrection and our salvation.

    Finally, I would like to leave you with this message that has been attributed to Pope Francis: Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street. When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party. Let's think about when the coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, the photos close to each other. We think about when it will be all a memory but normality will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift. We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us. Every second will be precious. Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter. We will go back to laughing together. Strength and courage.’

    God bless, Mr. Briggs

  • Westminster Cathedral Carol Service

    12th December

    Westminster Cathedral Carol Service

     

    On Tuesday the 12th of December 2017, the Mini Vinnies, Chaplains and Caritas Ambassadors visited the Westminster Cathedral to celebrate the birth of Jesus through a carol service. We all set off on the coach excited to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas together.

    When we arrived in Westminster, we settled in before the service began. All of a sudden the angel Gabriel came out and greeted us. He told us the story of the nativity and, at an important stage in the story, we would sing a carol.

    There were farm animals called Larry the donkey and a sheep. While we were having fun we all had to remember why we celebrate such a major celebration like Christmas. Cardinal Vincent Nichols was there and, in his concluding speech, he stressed the importance of what we can’t always see. We all bought gifts in aid of the Catholic Children’s Society and knew we came back to school knowing that we had done a good deed.

    We had an amazing time and enjoyed celebrating the birth of Jesus - Christmas.  We also met Cardinal Vincent afterwards and were privileged to have our photo taken with him.

  • Chaplains' Enrolement

    09th November

    On Thursday 9th November, we had a Whole School Mass and, during it, Father Paul gave all the student chaplains a special blessing to initiate the children into chaplaincy.

    At the start of the Mass we were given a sheet of paper which had our responses and the special prayer on it.

    After the Homily, Father Paul called us up and gave us the special blessing and a Student Chaplain sash to wear when we are present in our meetings. During the special blessing, we had to read our responses and our prayer out loud.

    This special blessing gives us the courage to spread the Word of God and share our inner thoughts and feelings with other students. We will now be leading assemblies at school to share what has happened during the previous Sunday’s Mass and helping to teach the students how to strengthen their faith.

    By Patrick and Erin (6W)
