As part of the school’s commitment to charitable giving, this year St Joseph’s School chose the Cornwall Air ambulance as their adopted charity. The Air Ambulance performs invaluable work across our home county, saving many lives and providing a service that is essential in a county as diverse and diffuse as Cornwall.

Throughout this academic year a number of activities and concerts took place in both the Junior and Senior schools in order to raise funds for an organisation that is entirely reliant on donations and fundraising save lives in Cornwall and beyond. Pupils have been fortunate enough to experience a recent assembly in which a representative spoke to all of the children about the work of the Cornwall Air Ambulance and the important role that they play.

On Tuesday 26th June, members of both the junior and senior schools had the privilege of travelling to the Cornwall Air Ambulance headquarters in Newquay. They were given a tour of the base and spent time talking with the paramedics. The pupils then had the pleasure of presenting them with a cheque for £1000, a significant sum that the pupils have worked hard to raise throughout the year.

After a successful performance at Exeter Arena for the South West ISA Athletics, St. Joseph’s had an impressive 15 students qualifying to represent the SW team at the national event at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. Our pupils competed in a range of track and field events and joined up with pupils from other schools to form relay teams. The conditions were perfect in comparison to previous years of either heavy rain or hot sunshine; all of our pupils performed fantastically in their events and should be very proud of their achievements.

A special well done to three pupils who won medals in their events, they were presented their medals by two British Olympic Athletes Jo Mersh and Martyn Bernard.

Ella Henry-Brock won Bronze in the Year 8/9 girls Javelin and threw a distance of 24.99m. Ella’s biggest success of the day was her high jump in which she became a National Champion, with a winning jump of 1.55m.

Lucas Drayton won silver in the Year 8/9 long jump where he jumped 5.61m, the winner had jumped 2cm more than Lucas to steal first place; a very close competition!

Harrison Shaw, our youngest member for the team, competed in the Year 4 boys group. Harrison was a key member for the relay team who performed strongly together finishing in second place and taking home the silver medal.

Well done to all of those pupils who competed and thank you for the support from parents. We are very proud of not only their performances, but also their determination and fantastic attitudes they displayed whilst representing St. Joseph’s School.

Harrison Shaw, Sam Thomas, Lowen Courtney-Bridgey, Thomas Harris, Louisa Smith, Robert Rosevear, Florence Scard-Morgan, Lucas Drayton, Will Collings, Kellen Lincoln, Pippi Harris, Daniella Stevens, Ella Henry-Brock, Chloe Smith and Hermione Hartigan
