Here are some of the Eggs Factor Challenge dishes this week, so if yours is not included, I will add more next week.
As promised we are continuing with our SJCHS classic book reviews!
Mrs Ward has shared her love of the classic novel ‘Of mice and men’ this week.
Here are our 24 chosen ‘classic novels.’ Books our students are encouraged to take the opportunity to read:
Overview for students:
*Each book has a quiz attached. Staff have created these quizzes and should be completed once the book has been read.
* Rewards are given for good completion of the quiz.
Students are now encouraged to access the ebook library catalogue online. The classics can be found here.
Please see Mrs Wylie once you have read the classic book. A quiz can be emailed to you.
I would love to hear what you are reading. Email me to let me know which novel you have chosen and why?!

I apologise for the very late message.
We have decided to pause the COVID testing due to the announcement this evening.
I would like to thank all of the volunteers who so kindly gave up their time to be trained and to set up today.
I hope that we might be able to offer testing again nearer to our return to school, whenever that might be.
I hope all our St Joseph’s family is well. We will be in contact tomorrow about work and GCSEs.
Happy New Year! This is my first daily message on a Sunday but it is important that you know what is happening. I did email last week also. It is worth noting that if the Government adjust their plans, we will have to change ours. I speak for all the staff when I say that we would prefer that everyone was back this week and we were all in school together at St Joseph’s. #family

Those who were awarded their certificates have shown a passion for reading this term and recognise the importance of reading regularly, but most importantly, enjoying reading!
There have been some brilliant discussions about the books being read by our students.
The English department hope you have a lovely Christmas and a well-earned rest.
Here is our virtual Christmas concert. We hope you enjoy it and it spreads some Christmas cheer. Happy Christmas from the Performing Arts Department.
