St. Joseph Tilbury Students Resume ‘Together’ School Family Activities

Students at St. Joseph Catholic School in Tilbury recently enjoyed their first ‘together’ school family activity since the start of the pandemic in 2020.  Students at the school are assigned to ‘family teams’ with students from JK to Grade 8, with the senior students leading special activities.

The most recent family team activity included reading the book Beautiful Hands by Kathryn Otoshi. Following the book reading, students completed family team paintings, using their hands.

In addition, the school’s senior girls after-school program Beyond Friday Friends has also restarted following a hiatus due to the pandemic. The club runs weekly and all Grade 7 and 8 girls are welcome to attend. Activities focus on building confidence and community through games, cooperative challenges and play.

“The girls are learning how to be friends face-to-face,” says Jeanne Girard, Principal of St. Joseph Catholic School.  “We don’t allow cell phones or social media … we just talk to each other.  No technology allowed!”
