Thank You !

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the support and kind words that I have received during my first year as Head teacher of St Joseph’s Primary. Our school is very special and this is due to your wonderful children, our dedicated staff and the continuous support of you, our parents.

We have had a very successful year and we are looking forward to continuing and building on this success next session.

We hope you have a lovely summer.

God bless

Suzanne Martin

Well done to all the pupils in Primary 3a who came 2nd in the East Renfrewshire SUMDOG maths competition.

They competed against 192 classes so 2nd place is  huge achievement.

The pupils worked so hard and should be very proud of themselves.

They now receive a free 3 month subscription for this class which will activate in August.
