Welcome to Our School
CASH FOR CLOBBER
We are doing 'cash for clobber' the week after Easter, so keep us in mind if you feel like having a spring clearance as it is a great way to raise funds for the school. We will take all clothes, shoes(paired), handbags and household textiles but not duvets or pillows. Thanks!
School will close for the holidays on Thursday 13th April at 11.30am. There will be no lunch or toast on that day. P1/2 can be collected from their usual doors at 11.20am. From everyone in St. Joseph's we would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter.
