It was a pleasure to welcome Mr JP Morrison to St Joseph’s on Tuesday 30 April 2019.

Mr Morrison is the Director of Education at the Diocese of Westminster.

He later tweeted that he enjoyed his time here as much as we enjoyed his visit!

Thank you Mr Morrison for coming to see our lovely new school building and for spending time with the children. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The cast of the St Joseph's performance of The Lion King presented their first show for parents yesterday afternoon. It was a huge success so we look forward to more parents and children being able to enjoy the rest of the performances.

News about the great show has been spreading through the local community so we are delighted to be welcoming Ms Lawrence, Headteacher of St Mary's Church of England School, who will be bringing some of her pupils to see the show next week too!

We will be sharing more information once all the performances have been completed, but here are some photographs and video clips for you to enjoy for now!

On Wednesday 23 January, St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Primary School enjoyed a very special Mass in which Bishop John Sherrington officially reopened the school following the devastating fire of September 2015.

During the Mass, Bishop John also blessed the new altar and the new stained glass window that had been commissioned through the generous fundraising of the parents.

The stained glass window depicts the presentation of baby Jesus at the temple, and that event was the focus of the Gospel passage read by Fr Stephen. Bishop John spoke about the scene in the window representing two important things.

The first is that it reminds Christians about their Baptism when their parents presented them to the Church. The second thing is that the light comes streaming through the window and the school goes out carrying the light of their faith into the wider community.

Some very special guests were in attendance including Ms Tolley (Brent Strategic Director for Children and Young People) and the Mayor of Brent, Cllr Arshad Mahmood. The school also welcomed Mr Coyle (Headteacher of Newman Catholic College) who provided learning areas at his school for 6 weeks so the education of the St Joseph's children could continue while temporary classrooms were being installed on their own site.

St Joseph’s were also delighted to welcome representatives from the Catholic Children’s Society (CCS) who provided a significant financial donation to the school just days after the fire. Dr Keenan shared the following message with us: 

What a joy to join you for the celebration Mass on Wednesday. I was really struck by the maturity and graciousness of your pupils. They are an incredible tribute to all that you achieve at St Joseph’s; helping them to be the best they can be. Rebuilding the school after the fire must have been a marathon. I am so impressed by the leadership and all that Mrs Titus and the school have achieved under such adverse conditions. You have all had a long journey. Great will be your reward in the kingdom of heaven! CCS is privileged to have been able to assist in a small way and I am glad it helped. That’s what we’re here for.

A special recognition was given to the Governing Board who were also at this celebration. The Governors tirelessly support the school community by volunteering their time and their wide range of skills to support the children and staff.

 St Joseph’s now looks forward to a bright and hopeful future for the whole school community.
