St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Together we grow in God's love, learning to be the best we can be.

Catholic social teaching

Community and participation are important principles in Catholic Social Teaching. They emphasise the value of human relationships, the common good and the active involvement of individuals in society. 


John Birkbeck from CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) came in to talk to us about the BIG LENT WALK. During lent we work alongside CAFOD to support fishermen in Liberia. John spoke to us about the wondrful work CAFOD do to support the fishermen in the capital city of Monrovia. 

May is the month of Mary

During May the children learned more about Our Lady. Who she was, what she was like and how exactly she was so generous. We talked about how we could be generous like Mary; generosity can be your time and your presence, not just your money.
