A lovely afternoon was spent with Year 7 pupils and their families, along with staff, teachers and governors at our Year 7 Welcome Mass. The Year 7 pupils had been working very hard throughout the last fortnight preparing for the Mass including the reading, singing, serving and organisation. The Year 7 choir along with the rest of the year group were in great voice and really lifted the liturgy for all who were there.
We are very grateful to Fr. Paul Brophy and Deacon Jim Caddick for coming along to St Joseph’s to celebrate our Mass.
Following Mass pupils and their families enjoyed a buffet prepared by the pupils and their parents had the opportunity to discuss the start of term with the Year 7 Pastoral Team.
Special thanks for Mrs V Johnston (Year 7 Learning Leader) and Dr M Felton for organising the afternoon.
