On 15th October St Joseph's hosted the first 2014-15 Interschool Challenge Day, in which 12 Year 9s from 6 different schools experienced a workshop from each school, including Drama, Maths and Business Studies. It was a great day with an excellenta atmosphere of teamwork and full participation, with our two teams being praised from teachers from all schools. Both teams finished in mid-table, though one of them would have come close to winning had they had more experience of French rather than Spanish! The next inter-school day will be for Year 8s, with Year 7s following in the Summer.

On the 16th October a selection of year 8 and 9 girls represented the college in the Swindon U14’s Netball Tournament. Considering none of the girls had played in a team together before they used fantastic team work and communication to win three out of their six games beating: Lydiard Park, Kingsdown and Commonweal. A huge congratulations to all the girls: Ilena McCann, Grace Fitzgerald, Kiesha Ishani, Georgina Muroki, Morenike Funsho, Lauren Larcombe, Megan Neely, Morgan Barberi, Megan Barberi, Glory Iwouha.
