Parent Council Social Committee

It’s that time of year when St. Joseph’s Social Committee asks for your support by sponsoring your child to take part in a sponsored bounce to raise funds for the school.

Last year the children had a fantastic time and we raised in excess of £2000 for the school which we hope to do again this year so any amount of sponsorship, however small, is greatly appreciated..

The event will take place in the school gym on the morning of Wednesday 13th September, Please try and bring the sponsorship money on the morning of the bounce, however we will continue to collect up until and including Friday 29th September.

 Please put any amounts in an envelope with child’s name and the amount of sponsorship please. 

 Thanks again for your continued support.

Changes to Admission Arrangements for St Ninian’s High School

St Joseph’s Primary Parent Council

Changes to Admission Arrangements for St Ninian’s High School

St Ninian’s High School is full to capacity and demand for places is beginning to exceed the number of places available for the resident population.

The neighbouring non-denominational secondary schools have adequate available space which the council is seeking to utilize in order to alleviate the over-crowding at St Ninian’s.

To alleviate these problems, the Council has proposed to amend the admission criteria to St Ninian’s.

Firstly, it is proposed that priority of admission to St Ninian’s will be given to children resident within the school catchment area.

Secondly, in cases where there is greater demand for places than those that are available for local residents, it is proposed that families who have a proven affiliation with the Catholic faith will be given priority of admission.

IMPORTANT – PLEASE HAVE YOUR SAY!

Please take a few minutes to visit the following webpage to support the proposed changes so that all Baptised catholic school children are able to attend their chosen secondary school.
