Concert at Dingles Fairground

February 23rd, 2011 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Music - (0 Comments)

At our  concert in aid of the Children’s Hospice South West last June, Area co-ordinator, Judy Pride suggested that the Senior Chamber Choir might like to be involved with  the annual Christmas Carol Concert at Dingles Heritage Fairground Centre in aid of the CHSW.   The choir gladly accepted the invitation and had a fun-filled afternoon, sampling all the rides at the fairground for free, including the Ghost Train and the Dodgems  before entertaining the audience with several pieces from their Christmas repertoire.   The congregational carols were accompanied by the Holsworthy Silver Band, and over £1,677 was raised for the CHSW.    Many thanks to all those in the choir who were able to make it to Dingles.  It made a fantastic end to the term – and so successful was it that we’ve been invited back next year!

Cross Country Competition

February 12th, 2011 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Sports - (0 Comments)

On a cold February afternoon,  13  St. Joseph’s pupils ran in the St. Petroc’s Cross Country event at Summerleaze Downs, Bude. The pupils in years 5 and 6 ran a total of 2500m two laps of an undulating wind swept course and the year 4 pupils ran one lap, about 1300m. All the pupils walked the course taking in the route and any obstacles that were in the way, they listened well and where ready to race.

The first race was the U9 boys Sam Luckhurst, Archie Sparrow and Maxwell Wilkerson-Hunt took part; all had good starts and they all finished very strongly. The U9 girls followed.  Ava McDiarmid-Hall, Lulu Howells, Macie John-Gardner and Molly Barton lined up at the start line, by this time it was raining heavily but it didn’t stop the St Joseph’s girls from running their hearts out, all of them finished in the top ten with Molly Barton finishing 2nd!

Next came the U11 boys, Jim Luckhurst, Harvey Fry and Michael Barton all ran very well, Harvey recovered from being tripped up and as they started the 2nd lap Michael was in 2nd place –  could he keep this position for a further 1200m? Jim and Harvey followed closely. All three boys raced the 2nd lap with great concentration and determination, Michael finished in 2nd place another fantastic achievement. The last race was the U11 girls Kate Barrett, Laura Sant and Pearl Bamford; the rain had stopped but the course was very slippery, this didn’t faze the older girls they ran with purpose and all finished powerfully.

Final results are yet to be published, when they have been confirmed I will let everyone know their positions but well done to all the runners especially to Molly and Michael Barton who both came 2nd in their respective races. Also, many thanks to all the parents and staff, for their support, help and motivational words on this exciting, cold and damp afternoon. Mrs Jane Gardner.

Congratulations to Lydia Uglow for becoming the runner up in the South West regional finals in the ‘Future Chef’ competition at Tiverton

8000 students entered this competition from all over the country. Lydia won the Cornwall heat in December and competed against 8 other students in February 2011.

Lydia’s food was not only tasted great but her presentation was superb and the judges also commented on how calm and unflustered she was. 

Apparently there was only 1 point between Lydia and the winner who now goes on to the finals in London in March.

Along with a certificate Lydia was presented with her own chefs Whites and apron with her name embroidered on them and a HIX recipe book.
