Years 5 and 6 are currently spending 3 days at Camp Kernow which is an off-grid environmental adventure centre near Truro. It harnesses renewable energy and employs sustainable technologies, including composting toilets, reed-beds, solar powered water and biomass-fuelled showers. The camp brings green education to life, enabling children to understand and experience a new way of living in balance with nature.
 
During their stay, Years 5 and 6 are taking part in a packed programme of exciting, challenging and unforgettable experiences including wild food foraging, technical tree climbing and bat detecting!
 
They have had a brilliant time so far!

Music For A Summer Evening

May 13th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | Music | News - (0 Comments)

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.

 

Year 1 Rainforest Animals

May 13th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in News - (0 Comments)

n preparation for their trip to the Eden Project on Wednesday, the Year 1 children have been using the iPads to investigate and paint rainforest animals 🐘

On Friday 10th May we had a whole school assembly organised by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). There were some very willing helpers (Ruben and Jessica from year 1 were especially keen to get up in front of the school and help to ‘save’ some of the older children.) The children asked lots of very good questions and there was a display of exceptional sitting and listening from the youngest children in the school. We are now ready and prepared to visit the beach! Thank you to the RNLI lifeguards for coming to speak with us 🏖
