Meet The Staff


 

Introducing our staff, with the help of our very talented artists in our school !

I came to this lovely school in January 2017. I am responsible for making sure we all work together to make our school the best it can be. We are working on making our school building bigger, better and beautiful! Our Nursery has now opened and we are flourishing as a school.There are exciting times ahead for our St. Joseph's Primary community. We are currently having the roofing replaced and are very pleased with the results so far. We are also in the process of replacing windows in our Annex area, replacing our flooring throughout. We have installed a new outdoor classroom and plans are in place for the rest of our outdoor areas, with new canopies for our Foundation Phase to be installed after the roof is completed.  There are also plans in place to re tarmac the school playground, with a soft area outside the Nursery. We have a vision and are on our journey. The best things about our school are the fantastic, hardworking and caring staff and our kind, friendly children.
