St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is proud to be part of the St Joseph's parish community in Whitnash. We are lucky to be able to visit the church regularly, attending mass and confession. Father Bob is our parish priest and he leads our mass with us every Monday at 2.15pm in the school hall. You can find our more about the parish by clicking the picture below.
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
Following a spiritual Sacrament of Reconciliation, our wonderful Year 3 children celebrated First Holy Communion on Saturday 11 June. The singing and readings were beautiful and we are all so proud to support our pupils as they make this important commitment to their faith and to live in the glory of God's love. It was lovely to see so many pupils, families and friends joining in the celebration.
Our Year 6 children have now received the sacrament of Confirmation. The Confirmation Mass was beautiful and Bishop Kenney was inspiring in his homily. We are all very grateful for the support from the parents and sponsors and I was personally moved to tears by the children's beautiful singing! Many of our Key Stage 2 children also attended, as part of the choir and the fabulous music group, to support their friends. Thank you to you all.
We are also part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Archbishop Bernard Longley leads our wider Catholic community and you can find out all about his work by clicking the image above. You can also follow the Archdiocese on Twitter:
Children that attend St Joseph's Catholic Primary School go on to several local schools in Year 7. One of these is the Trinity Catholic School lead by its progressive and creative headteacher Chris Gabbett. Trinity Catholic School is the only Catholic secondary school that serves our parish. St Joseph's (along with the other Catholic primary schools in Leamington and Warwick) is part of the Central Warwickshire Catholic Pathway. This pathway will make us stronger in delivering an outstanding Catholic education for all the children for our parishes. Click the image to visit their website.
Trinity is a creative, vibrant and aspirational school; a model for progressive Catholic education in the 21st century. It is a place of equality, opportunity, inclusion and excellence, where every individual in the school is valued for their unique contribution to school life.
They strive towards equality and a sense of justice, and have high expectations of students in this regard. Trinity is a Pax Christi school, and principles of social justice and non-violence are at the core of their mission.
Trinity are justifiably proud of their academic results, and of the destinations their students aim for and achieve. This year, former Trinity pupils will be studying at Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, and they can count influential artists, sportspeople, actors and business people amongst their alumni. Just as impressively, former Trinity students are active in the third sector and work as leaders of charities and social enterprises. Pupils of Trinity Catholic school become part of a varied, talented, caring community.
