Our School Libraries and Librarians 

At St Joseph's, we love to read! Our school libraries are taken care of by our amazing children. The children take pride in organising our libraries and ensuring they are well-stocked with books we can all enjoy together. Our school librarians audit our class libraries, recommend books to their friends and keep up-to-date with new book releases for us to order into our libraries.

Our School Newspaper Club

At St Joseph's, we are passionate about providing opportunities for our children to write for purpose and publish the amazing work they do. Our Newspaper Club publishes an issue of 'The St Joseph's Gazette' every half term.
