Happiest Minute of the Week: 19th–23rd September 2022

Published September 23, 2022

Every week, our staff send in their submissions for the Happiest Minute of the Week. These can be anything from a whole class behaving well, to the small and kind gestures that make someone’s day!

All of these Happiest Minutes are then presented to the whole school every Friday by Mr Ford and Mr Bartel in the weekly rewards raffle.

As part of our ethos here at St Joseph’s, we love to share kindness, gratitude and positivity. So without further ado, here are this week’s nominations for Happiest Minute of the Week!

Mr Bartel:

  • SNP (8F) for helping out another student in distress and assisting them in starting a less.
  • Mr Caruso for saving the day and running DoE volunteering.
  • SW (11M) for sending me the Prefect info when she has far more pressing matters to be getting on with.
  • EL (11M) for outstanding observations in spotting the St Joseph’s Way.

Mrs Hansford:

  • 7D English for being utterly brilliant on Friday morning whilst year 11s were sitting their exam in room 26. They were very respectful the whole lesson and I was very proud of them.
