ALL SAINTS DAY
All Saints’ Day is the beginning of a two-day celebration of the saints and those who have died. We celebrate the communion of saints, the union of prayer and love between saints on earth and the saints in heaven.
Some ordinary people performed some extraordinary acts of love and compassion in their time following in the footsteps of Jesus. The stories of Mary, Mother of Jesus, St Joseph and St Mary MacKillop, teach us many ways to follow Jesus Christ.
ALL SAINTS DAY MASS THURSDAY 1ST NOVEMBER
We invite the St Joseph’s School community to join us at Mass to celebrate All Saints Day tomorrow, Thursday 1st November at 8.30am in the school library.
Last week we went on an excursion to Lake Argyle. We learnt about the plants and animals that live in and around the lake. We also got to swim in the infinity pool and had a really yummy BBQ lunch. Thank you to Lake Argyle for having us and to Mr Jamie, Miss Brianna, Miss Gehrmann and Miss Di for helping to make our excursion a success. It was the best day EVER!
In English we have been learning about audience, persuasive language and developing a script. We used all of these skills to create some entertaining adverts using iMovie. Our adverts will be showcased this Friday at our class assembly.
In Mathematics we have been focusing on maps and coordinates. We have also learnt about the differences between pyramids and prisms and have been completing some really fun Kahoot quizzes. We have begun to work with money and have been learning about how to calculating change.

Thank you for your cooperation.
Canteen Volunteers Wanted
Miss Kris is looking for parents or friends of the St Joseph’s community who may be able to lend a hand. As they say, many hands make light work! If you can assist in any way, please have a chat with Kris or the Principal.
St Joseph’s School Uniforms
At St Joseph’s School we take great pride in our appearance. The school uniform is also an important aspect of child health and safety. It is a requirement that all students wear a St Joseph’s uniform (including a hat with our logo) that is purchased from our uniform shop. Similar items bought elsewhere may not be worn to school.
Please note that our “no hat, no play” policy will be enforced.
See our website for a full range of uniform items.
Uniforms may be purchased at any time from our office.
Praying the Rosary
Sr Marcella will lead us in one decade of the rosary each Friday at 7:35am on the grass outside the administration building. Please feel welcome to join us for five minutes of prayer.
New Enrolment Policy
The West Australian School Education Act (1999) stipulates that information about immunisation status and date of birth must be supplied when applying to enrol at school. As of 2018, a child’s birth certificate and immunisation documents must be provided before they can commence their schooling at St Joseph’s.
Thank you for your cooperation.
