Reception and Year 1 celebrated Chinese New Year this week which involved a Chinese New Year story sack (thank you Kasey), a Chinese lunch, red envelope pully delivery races in the orchard and we made a Chinese new year wish tree with Year 2. We also had a craft afternoon and worked together to make a fantastic Chinese dragon ๐Ÿ‰

Candlemas

Yesterday we just managed to get our Liturgical celebration of the Christmas period in with a service for the Feast of Candlemas. The Feast falls on the 2nd February and it marks the end of Christmas and Epiphany, we did not quite make the 2nd but somewhere in the word is was still the 2nd February! The service was a new venture for the school as we needed something to make-up for the cancelled Carol Service and we were also able to use St Cuthbertโ€™s Church which St Josephโ€™s have not used for a service many years. Father John and the team at St Cuthbert’s made us so welcome and it was a wonderful place to make music in. It was good to see so many members of the extended St Josephโ€™s family supporting the service (and singing so heartily). Those who were there treated to a wide range of music which was performed by the Boysโ€™ Choir, Girlsโ€™ Chamber Choir and Canzonetta. All was accompanied on the organ by Mr Jonathan Mann who played with great sensitivity. In addition to playing the organ Mr Mann spent a great deal of time in the morning tracking down some very unusual noises emanating from the organ chamber that we had to contend with during rehearsals. This was truly a St Josephโ€™s Family affair as we have not had many opportunities to undertake joint work with both the Junior and Senior schools, when we do, it shows what a great place this is. Mr Green. ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐ŸŽต
