Successful fun day thrills school

THE Saint Joseph's Secondary School family got together last weekend during the school's annual fun day.

Principal Sister Genevieve Loo said the purpose of the fun day was to bring students and their parents together with school staff, as well as former students and their families.

"This is a great way to interact and share life together," Sister Genevieve said.

"We also know that in a way, these fun days enhance the students' academic performance because the parents are giving their time to support them."

She said each form held a fundraising drive to raise money for costumes for their concert in June, as well as meeting the immediate needs of each class.

"This is a valuable exercise from the point of view of community building. We are enhancing the partnership of home and school working together for the benefit of the students."

The fun day featured food stalls, rides, car wash, disco tents, photo booths and other fun competitions.

"We want to thank the family and extended families of Saint Joseph's Secondary School for supporting our fun days year after year."
