We are proud of our place in the community of Darwen, and especially proud of our close ties with parents.
The chaplaincy team have adopted the grave of a local war hero, and held a fundraiser for Macmillan. Our school council holds sales in aid of its chosen charities.
In addition we hold numerous fundraisers throughout the year for causes close to our hearts - Walk A Mile for CAFOD and St Joseph's Penny Boxes (money from which improves lives locally) being just two examples. Our Parents Teachers Association meet regularly and hold several events like the 100 Club, School Discos and Film Night to raise funds, which go directly back into school for spending. They are always looking for new members! We are happy to belong to our community and the wider world, and play our part in it.
