Happiest Minute of the Week: 4th–6th January 2023

Published January 9, 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 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

Mrs Parsons:

  • I would like to nominate Princess EM (9M) for her participation in the Salisbury Playhouse Pantomime of Cinderella. Our school needs to be very proud of her performance. She was an absolute credit to the school and her peers. It was an absolute pleasure watching you perform.

Mr Ford:

  • JM (10F) for completing his module of work for BTEC Creative Media.
  • My Year 10 class for their patience and tolerance.
