Summer Fair / Fun Day - 2 July 2022

As the final celebration of our 150th anniversary, St Joseph’s is hosting a Summer Fair / Fun Day on 2 July 2022.

The highlight of the day will undoubtedly be the first-ever, St Joseph’s Colour Run. This involves pupils running through multiple checkpoints throughout the school field while being splattered with coloured paint by staff and parents. It is very, very messy and a lot of fun!

During the day, we also hope to be offering refreshments, cakes, ice-creams, sweets, and toys for sale. This year will also see the return of the much-loved bottle tombola. In addition, copies of the St Joseph’s History Book will be available to buy (or collect if you have pre-paid via the website).

We are excited to announce that the following groups will be performing on the day:
