Saint Joseph’s Primary Maclean

Celebrating Saint Joseph’s Day As part of celebrating our Patron Saint – Joseph, our school celebrated St Joseph’s Day on Friday 18th March.  All were warmly invited to help us celebrate this day as a school community which was held at Broom’s Head beach & Caravan Park. During this day, students took part in a Liturgy by the beach, a beach walk & organised class activities. This was a day of reflection and relationship building amongst all students & staff and a wonderful opportunity to strengthen our community.   Sacrament of Reconciliation On Thursday 17th March, children in Year 3 participated in the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. This was a wonderful opportunity for children to experience God’s forgiveness in a very real way. Students also be took part in a retreat afternoon with Mrs Sharon Warren in preparation for the Sacrament.
