Our Year Group Saints
The Primary leadership team with Mrs Osman and Mrs Brown researched a number of different saints. Once they had decided on the saints they went back to their Year groups and the children voted for the Saint they wanted. They then announced each year group saint in an Assembly.
Reception - St Joseph
This was a unanimous decision as the Primary leadership team felt it was important as children entered the school to know and learn about the Saint our school is named after.
Saint Joseph was chosen to be the husband of Mary. He was also the foster father of Jesus. He is said to have been selected by God for this role because he could be trusted to watch over them. We pray he watches over all our children whilst they are under our care here at St Joseph’s
Year 1 - St David
Saint David, known as Dewi Sant in Welsh, is the patron saint of doves and poets as well as Wales.
Year 2 - St Catherine of Siena
Catherine wrote that no matter where people lived or who they were, they should realise that all their talents and everything they have is from God. Catherine used her talents to have a positive effect on the world.
Year 3 - St Francis
Saint Francis was known for his love of nature, particularly his love of animals
