On Friday morning the Year 6 class and Deacon Peter led a wonderful Eucharistic Service to welcome our new Year 3 class to St Joseph’s Junior School. Lots of parents came along to support the classes and at the end of the service each of the children in Year 3 received a ‘Friendship Certificate’ (and a mall chocolate treat!), from one of the pupils in Year 6. The certificates each had a welcome message written by the Year 6 children explaining how they would help support or ‘buddy’ their new Year 3 friend.
“It was a wondeful start to a new school year,” commented Deacon Peter, “I thought the messages written on the certificates were really lovely and heartfelt and I’m sure will be appreciated by both the children in Year 3 and their parents.”
