FOUR primary students represented our school at the CWA Public Speaking Competition recently.
According to all reports, Bronson, Grace, Tom and Anthony spoke extremely well and were fine ambassadors for our school.
We are grateful to Mrs Hayden for her organisation of this event and the parents of these children for transporting them to Orange.
CONGRATULATIONS to St Joseph's School's year six student Kobi Hotham for his efforts to organise Australia's Biggest Morning Tea at St Joseph's. Kobi's goal was to raise $400 for the Cancer Council. Through his hard work and the generosity of so many people, Kobi raised an incredible $1140.15.
A special thank you to mayor Kathy Sajowitz for her attendance as well as the many guests who came along to support this great cause.
Thank you to the many children and families who brought in food items to share and sell in the Joeys Kitchen Rules (JKR) Competition. Also, thanks to Leanne Barlow from Oberon Pies and Pastries who donated the amazing slab cake.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of the newly confirmed candidates who took part in a wonderful celebration last Sunday at St Ignatius Church. The special day was well-supported by the sponsors, parents, friends, parishioners and staff of St Joseph's. Bishop Michael McKenna and Father Filby were delighted with the candidates' reverence and participation. They should be extremely proud of their commitment on this faith journey so far.
