Barnet SACRE Interfaith Choir Performance at Interfaith Peace Vigil

On Thursday 25th January 2024, the Barnet SACRE Interfaith Choir, founded by Dr. Alan Shaw, of which St Joseph's Catholic Primary School are proud members of, had their first professional performance of the year. 
Around 30 of our pupils within Years 4, 5 and 6 are members of the Interfaith Choir, and the vast majority of them performed a selection of songs at an Interfaith Peace Vigil at Middlesex University, alongside two other Primary Schools in the borough. 
The event was organised jointly by the Barnet Multifaith Forum and Together with Humanity. The programme included talks by senior faith leaders from many religions, the Mayor and invited celebrities. 
The choir had the opportunity to perform alongside Award Winning Singer Songwriter and BBC Radio 2 Playlisted Artist Tally Koren. 
Tally has been using her voice in the last few years to build bridges between different cultures with her UK tour 'Vision of Hope', with the message - "We all speak the same language through music."

We call upon you to be our guide and protector.

Walk to school week 14th - 18th of June and Clean Air Day

Walk to school(2)

Next week is Walk to School Week. This year it coincides with Clean Air Day which is on the 17th of June. Our aim is to raise the childrens’ awareness of the importance of clean air and the impact of car use on air pollution and the wider environment.

By walking, the children will become more aware of their local area. It is also a chance for you to teach them to become more aware of road traffic and safety conscious when crossing roads.

During the week, children will have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities to develop their understanding of the importance of our environment and the impact which we have upon it.

We also aim to teach the children that walking is fun, improves physical and mental fitness and is environmentally friendly.
