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.

Year 10 Alternative Curriculum were fortunate to have Joffre White, a professional, published author and Patron of the Swindon Youth Festival of Literature, to join them for a recent lesson. This lesson was an introductory session which will eventually lead to our students producing copyrighted pieces of creative writing which will also assist them with their ASDAN qualifications.

Joffre engaged the students with his views (and theirs!) on current popular teenage fiction and its presentation on the big screen. We also considered the freedom we enjoy in the UK to enjoy literature and to be creative.

Niamh Smith and Connor McGilligan (Y11) took part in the Catenian Public Speaking Competition on 12th October, in which they had to talk for 4 minutes on a choice of topics, and were given a score for their performance. Niamh chose to speak on "Is there privacy online?", and referred to the recent celebrity photo scandal as well as wikileaks, where Connor presented on "Does Prison Work?", and spoke eloquently from memory on deterrence, rehabilitation and punishment. We were delighted that they came second and third respectively from a field of 8, and Niamh has qualified for the national competition next year. Well done both!
