This week children from across the school have taken part in the Mini London Marathon challenge. They have completed their 2.6mile run around the school grounds. Well done everyone!
Congratulations to our U14 Football team who travelled to Nottingham to participate in the ISA National tournament. They played brilliantly coming joint 2nd in their group. They then played in the U14 Bowl play off, unfortunately losing 2-0 against North Bridge House School. Whilst away the team also got to visit St George’s Park stadium where they enjoyed a tour and spoke with England U21 Manager Aidy Boothroyd which was particular special for Callum – an avid Watford FC Fan! Well done to our U14 team who represented the school so well. Callum, Jacob, Robert, Zack, George, Ollie, Will and Daniel.

Yesterday students in Year 9 and 10 were given the opportunity to enjoy a Yoga session with Miss Hemingway and Mrs Gardner. They discussed the benefits of exercise and the positive impact it has on mental health as well as physical health.
There are some great tips below from the charity Mind on why exercise is so important for our mental health.
A huge well done to all the St Joseph’s pupils who competed at the prestigious ISA National Swimming Championships in London on Saturday 30th November 2019. All those who represented the school at the inspiring setting of the London Aquatic Centre, home of the 2012 London Olympic swimming competition, had won through the ISA South West qualifiers. It was wonderful that seven St Joseph’s pupils travelled to the Olympic Pool to participate.
Just representing the school, and the South West, is a real honour and an accomplishment for every child. Congratulations to Year 8 pupil Olivia who came away with two fantastic medals: a bronze medal for the 50m breaststroke and a silver medal for 50m backstroke!
All of our pupils swam brilliantly with excellent first time swims in the Olympic pool, a setting that will certainly inspire them to every faster times as they continue their swimming. A great accomplishment for Rhys, Joseph and Rosie, and an event that saw new personal bests for Hollie, Louisa and Thomas.
Well done to all of the St Joseph’s swimmers for representing Cornwall and the South West with pride – a great achievement.
