Secondary students rocked the Bathersby Stadium last Thursday night when they enjoyed their Term 2 Social. With the theme “Wear a Toga” an assortment of creatively draped sheets could be seen filtering in to enjoy a few hours of great music and dancing.
On Tuesday 7th May, Artslink Queensland and Backbone Youth Arts presented “The Box” to Primary Students. “The Box” brought red nose clown, slapstick and physical comedy into one hilarious show about two clowns and a seemingly mundane box.
At the beginning of Term 2 students were given the opportunity to conduct experiments of their own choice and present their experiment to the class. On Monday the 28th April, the Year 10 Science classes combined to conduct an experiment that was instructed by PJ Bonner, Lachlan Knight and Bradley Britton.
Year 11 Chemistry students tested the local creek for water quality last Tuesday. The class collected water samples 500m above and 500m below the Weir near the Carnarvon Bridge as well as along the Weir.
Boys from Years 6 to 12 took part in Better Choices workshops last Monday and Tuesday. Presented by Steve Dale, these workshops focused on bringing clarity, purpose and direction to young men.
The newly named Bathersby Centre (fondly nicknamed the “gym”) has become an invaluable space for the St Joseph’s School community since its completion in 2011. It is planned that the majority of school functions and P & F fundraising events will be held at the centre, making the shared space one that symbolises the philosophy of a P-12 school.
Spending time with Belle and Matt from Y-Lead was a wonderful way for Year 6 to 12 students to finish the first week of Term 2. Students participated in a variety of games, listened to motivational and educational stories with a strong focus on learning how they can be the best possible leader.
The first Book Fair for 2013 is up and running in the library all this week. Book Fair has become a much loved event for the children, and provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and promote reading.
Welcome back to students and staff for what promises to be a demanding but exciting term. Teaching staff attended a retreat on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th April which was held at Happy Valley.
The last week of Term 1 at St Joseph’s School was busier than normal. On the last day of school, students from Prep to Year 12 gathered at The Bathersby Centre to celebrate the Easter liturgy with the theme of “The washing of the feet.”
