Welcome back to an exciting and event packed Summer term at St Josephs. To start the term we celebrated Easter with Y6 performing Resurrection Rock accompanied by the whole school with their singing. There is a display on a wooden cross where we have taken a number of pictures of this celebration in the area outside Miss Gardner's office. A selection of some of the photos are below.
