Happiest Minute of the Week: 20th–24th March 2023

Published March 24, 2023

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 Bartel and Mr Ford (or pupils who volunteer to host!) 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!

Happiest Minutes of the Week

  • The absolutely brilliant character acting shown by LAS (7M) during her Drama Assessment blew me away. Clear evidence of hard work and talent! Well done!

Mr Bartel:

  • AG (7T), ZF (7M), DH (7F) & MW (7F) for their amazing routines in gymnastics which they delivered to the whole group sensationally.
  • FH’s (10M) shoes, JB’s (10V) uniform, CF’s (10F) lack of grey jumper, DM (10V) improving manners.
  • AR (11F) for completing his trampoline routine, very impressive it is too.
  • TD (11T) for getting three quarters through his routine, also has impressive elements.

Mrs O’Grady:

  • LF (8V) for making the entire form laugh during PM registration, but more importantly for having the grace and good humour to laugh at herself (and clean up the mess!).  What could have been a bad moment was instead turned into a little pocket of joy, and it was a privilege to have shared in it.
  • ZM (8V) for outstanding focus during Science, completing all work set to a high standard and without disrupting the lesson once.

Well done everyone – see you next week!
