A welcome from the Principal

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic College. When speaking to prospective parents I usually start with the question what do we want for our children? Our answer in St Joseph’s is that we want them to be happy and we want them to achieve to their full potential. Our aim is to provide a caring and supportive environment in which each individual can progress academically, spiritually and culturally.

Swindon Schools Cross-Country

The PE department would like to congratulate every student involved in the Swindon Schools Cross-Country at Nova Hreod Academy held on Saturday 14th November.

Exceptional performances were achieved by Jessica De Mello in 7F who came 12th, Katie King in 7H who came 13th, Joseph Knibb in 8E who came 11th, Amelia Sharp in 9L who came 17th, and Teresa Iannetelli in 11M who came 7th. All students who achieved a top 12 position will be selected for next round which will be held on Saturday 16th January 2016 at Grittleton House.

On Tuesday the 6th October St. Joseph's Year 7 Netball Team beat Swindon Academy. It was a great achievement so everybody was pleased. The
players were Olivia Bath-C, Lorna Kamu-WD, Jessica De Mello-GA, Jessica Beby Bena-GS, Chantelle Mwangi- GK, Ashley Boby- GD, Hannah Barr-WD, Lexy Moore-WA. All the girls tried their best! Also thanks to Miss Jones and Miss Brennan for being there and supporting the team.

During the first half, the girls were staying in their attacking side mostly, for they kept scoring. Lexy, Jessica, Olivia and Jessica worked really well together. Ashley, Chantelle, Lorna and Hannah were really good at defending our net. There was lots of teamwork and support from each player. During the second half, Olivia tripped over, but because she was so strong, she got back up and carried on playing.

At the end of the match, sportsmanship really showed in the girls.We cheered for Swindon Academy. We choose the GD from their team to be the player of the match because she was really good. Swindon Academy chose Jessica De Mello-GA as the player of the match.
