School begins at Saint Joseph’s Primary Maclean

School started on Thursday for students at Saint Joseph’s Maclean with a explosion of happy faces and eager learners. Year 5 and 6 are an amazing group of students with an excited buzz in the air even before moving off to their classroom. They were very keen to quickly establish new routines and reflect on their roles as leaders in the the school. Miss Johnson and Mrs Barrington were very impressed with their wonderful group and the way they dived straight into work. Year 3 and 4 on their second day at school started the day with a prayerful reflection lead by Mr Layland of the things in their life they are grateful for.
