Everyone Belongs was the 2023 Harmony Week theme, reminding us all that our sense of belonging and identity enable us all to feel settled and balanced in our lives.
The diversity of languages and cultures continue to grow at St Joseph's. The recent google form sent out to students suggests that over 20% of our students speak another language other than English at home.
This year we continued our Food Fiesta from around the world, and a big thank you to Beatriz Wynia-Caprio for her continued support and contributions. The pop-up language workshops were popular too, with students choosing to learn: Italian, Aboriginal, German, Spanish, Filipino and Portuguese. Lastly, the introduction of cultural games saw students engage in some Pétanque and Finska.
Thank you to all the students that participated in these important celebrations.
We also hope to establish our Language Club monthly at school, this will run on the first Monday of each month (lunchtimes in 01C).
