There's a lot happening in the next few weeks with National Walk Safely to School Day & "A Day in May." Read on to find out more...



Well it’s that time of year again when our school seriously starts talking about walking!


Walk Safely to School Day asks that we all consider our transport habits and try to incorporate more walking as part of a healthy, active way to get around. And although walking all the way to school isn’t realistic for many of us, it’s quite easy to figure out how you can build a walk into your family’s daily routine. 


You can teach your child the healthy habit of walking more by: 


• Walking with them the whole way to school 

• If they get the bus or train, walk past your usual stop and get on at the next stop 

• If you have to drive, park the car a few blocks away from the school and walk the rest of the way. 


Regular exercise like walking with your child not only helps them (and you!) beat chronic problems like obesity, heart disease, behavioural and mental health issues and diabetes. It also gives you a great opportunity to teach your child safe ways to behave around roads and traffic. 


Remember, Active Kids are Healthy Kids so get planning your own Walk Safely to School Day journey for Friday 20 May 2022!

A Day In May

Friday 27th May 2022


Our school is helping to make a difference to the lives of children and families living with cancer by holding ‘A Day in May’ on Friday 27th May.



The ‘A Day in May’ campaign raises funds annually for Challenge’s Musical Moments Trust – a scholarship which funds positive musical experiences for young children diagnosed with cancer. It costs $500 to provide one Musical Moments Scholarship.


On Friday 27th May, in return for a donation, students can come to school dressed in YELLOW or as a favourite rockstar! 


During the day students will have the opportunity to perform in "St Joseph's Idol" to show off their musical talents. 


There will be a cupcake stall held after school so remember to bring some extra money for some delicious treats!


Why yellow? It all circles back to a special young boy who, despite the many hardships he was dealt, always embraced life with such a cheery positivity and warmth. He could light up any room and it is no surprise his favourite colour was yellow, which symbolises all his very best qualities. Throughout his treatment journey, this young boy found great comfort and support in the power of music. Whether he was singing or dancing, music always brought a smile to his face. In his memory and through the initiative of his family, the Musical Moments Trust was established.


So, please join us and go YELLOW this May to support a worthy cause and continue a special legacy.


By hosting A Day in May, we are not only helping to support children and families living with cancer, but our school will also enter the draw to win $1,000 worth of musical instruments!
