Penny Dinners Shoe Box Appeal

Thank you to all the families who contributed to the Penny Dinner Shoe Box Appeal.  There were many colourful boxes dropped in to the school on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.  These were then dropped to the Penny Dinner Centre by members of the PA and some students.  This is a reflection of the Spirit of Edmund Rice that is so evident in our school Community.

St. Joe’s was Decorated by the Parent Community

Thirty parents got together last weekend and spent hours decorating our school.  When we arrived in to school on Monday morning, we were met with a magical scene.  There were Christmas lights and garlands and Santas to be seen all over the school.  St. Joseph’s NS certainly feels a lot like Christmas…

A huge thank you to all those parents who got involved.
