In 2017, the PTFA held a competition for the pupils of St Joseph's to design us our own logo. We had lots of lovely entries, and after a staff vote, they were narrowed down to 3 finalists...
The 3 finalists fantastic logos were by James Farrington, Dante Godfrey and Sofia Penney. The voting was then opened up to parents, and after frenzied voting on facebook, on our webpage, and by email, the winner was..... SOFIA PENNEY, Year 4.
A huge well done to all involved, we were thrilled with all our designs, and are just happy the decision wasn't down to us. So thank you to the staff, and the parents for voting! The winning design is bright, and fun, and we hope it will give everyone a smile when they see it. Well done, and thank you Sofia!!!
