I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged
and ready to start a new school year. Our staff welcomes and value your positive
energy and looks forward to working with you and your children.
Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your children. Lisa
and Sharon are very busy registering new families, ordering much-needed materials,
and accepting book money either by cash or credit card.
Our hard working cleaning team, supported by Paul, caretaker, have spent the entire
summer thoroughly cleaning the school and it’s looking a treat. We are delighted with
the summer work on the infant yard which was funded solely by our Board of
We welcome our new and returning staff members- Ms. Mc Guinness, Ms. Woods, Ms.
Irwin, Mr. Marks and Ms. Mc Donald to our teaching team. We wish Ms. Mc Entegart
the best as she heads off on job-share for a year. We are also delighted to welcome Fr.
Derek, who is already very engaged in preparing First Communion and Confirmation
ceremonies for the children.
Our much-appreciated Parent Association will be working on providing volunteer
opportunities for parents and organising exciting events for the new school year.
Together, we are all working to ensure we grow as a caring school with the common
goals of nurturing responsible, caring pupils and promoting high-level learning.
We are very sad to be saying goodbye to Mrs. Lawlor at Halloween. She will be sorely
missed by parents, pupils and staff. We wish her the very best planning for a fun-filled retirement. We will certainly make sure that her final two months in St. Joseph’s are happy ones.
Thank you for preparing your child for the new school year. Your commitment to
insuring that St. Joseph’s remains a happy and successful school is awe-inspiring.It
remains an honour and privilege to serve as school principal. Together we will try our
very best to make this school year joyous, full of fun, with exciting and stress- free
learning for all.
Ms. Roz, Principal
