The Year 7 pupils were captivated yesterday by Paul Stevens and his drama production and workshop which highlighted the dangers of social media. The session was extremely interesting and Year 7 were fully engaged throughout. Thank you to Paul for visiting us and delivering a really engaging workshop.
Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 had an amazing time at the Eden Project yesterday. The morning was spent learning about seeds during a fantastic workshop where we explored lots of different seeds, dissected a seed, learned about the things that seeds need and how they grow, planted flowers to take back to school, pretended to be mini-beasts and played a growing game. After a picnic lunch we spent the afternoon enjoying the tropical biome. What a lovely sunny day out!
On Thursday 9th May our Senior School musicians took part in our “Music for a Summer Evening” concert. The Girls’ Chamber Choir began the evening with a performance of a piece called “Alleluia” in Ghanaian. The Wind Band and the Boys’ Choir both performed two new pieces that they had studied this term. Some soloists had been asked to perform some pieces to punctuate the evening, and they did especially well. The Canzonetta Choir concluded the evening with a performance of “Shake It Out” which was a choral arrangement of the popular song by Florence and the Machine. A huge well done to our outstanding musicians. Over £200 was raised on the evening for the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
An amazing finish for the St Joseph’s Ten Tors team who have arrived at Okehampton Camp at 9.22am yesterday morning. Well done Chloe, Arlen, Kellen, James, Pippi and Robin. We are very proud of you all! The team managed to reach their 8th check point on Saturday evening which meant they only had two tors to complete on Sunday.
More details to follow soon.
