Plaza Award Evening

Mr Waldron attended The Plaza for a PE award ceremony with Florence and Amelia from Year 6. St Joseph’s won TWO awards! One for commitment towards PE and one for our Basketball and Netball link with Reddish Vale Ball Hall. Florence and Amelia also won an award each. Florence won hers for designing a Commonwealth Games poster and Amelia’s won the Sports Photographer Award! We had a lovely evening. Very well done, girls!

A letter from the Mayor of London

Last year, the old 5AR (new 6NO) took part in The Clean Air Day on 21st June 2018. Throughout the day we looked at the importance of having clean air for both us and the environment, whilst also looking at ways we can reduce air pollution in big cities such as Manchester and London.

For one of our activities we wrote a letter to the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, outlining our plans to improve air pollution. We sent the letters off and a few months later we got a reply! The letter was very personal and both Mr Russell and the old 5AR were thrilled to receive it.
