St Joseph's Catholic Primary School celebrated the feast day of St Joseph last Thursday.

Everyone gathered as a school community for liturgy at St Mary's Church to remember the life lived by St Joseph and reflect on what his memory means for us today.

"As a school, we also remembered and celebrated our founding Sisters of St Joseph who began our school 132 years ago," St. Joseph's Primary School educator Chris Byrne said.

"We thank the Sisters of St Joseph for their dedication to education. We are proud to be a caring and supportive Josephite school community," she said.

After the liturgy, infants and senior students joined together for an afternoon of arts and crafts whhere ach student made and decorated a lily flower, a symbol often associated with St Joseph for his purity and guardianship of his family Mary and Jesus.

"We also created mosaic crosses which are on display at our Mackillop Building," Ms Byrne said.
