Phoenix, a child in Year 2 remarked:

‘My heart was full of happiness and love because I was helping people in our community.’

‘We wanted to celebrate St Joseph’s Feast Day by reaching out to those in need in our community.

‘St Joseph was known for his kindness and generosity, and we wanted to follow in his footsteps by giving back to our community,’ said Principal Nicolle Achmad.

The school’s staff and students participated in a special liturgy, where they offered prayers and reflections on St Joseph’s life and work.

‘The Feast of St Joseph is an opportunity for us to reflect on our faith and to put our beliefs into practice,’ said Father Edwin, the parish priest.

‘I am delighted to see the students of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School putting their faith into action and reaching out to help others.’
