To celebrate this event, we will be holding a stall to sell drinks, snacks and small items to help cheer the runners on. We would love it if as many members of our school community as possible could come along and join us.

We will be gathering on the grass area between West End Lane and Bevan Avenue from 9.15am. The runners are expected to be passing through Rossington between 9.30am and 11.30am.

On Friday 7th June, the children will be making posters, banners and baking cakes and biscuits to sell on the stall. All proceeds raised will go towards the Friends of St Joseph’s. If you would like to donate any cakes or biscuits to be sold at the stall, these will be very much appreciated! Please also let the office know if you are available to help out on the stall.

Image result for coderdojo


The new 'CoderDojo' club is for young people in the Doncaster community, as part of the CoderDojo Foundation.


CoderDojo is a global, volunteer-led movement of free computer coding clubs for young people aged 7 to 17.  At a Dojo, young people can explore technology and learn how to code in a fun and informal environment.


Young people at a Dojo usually begin by making simple animations & games with Scratch, before progressing to Python, HTML & CSS and Javascript to build their own website, apps & games. 


There is also plenty of room for creativity and young people get the opportunity to create new and exciting projects using BBC Micro:bits and Raspberry Pi’s.

We host free sessions one Saturday morning a month at the Central Library in Doncaster town centre where young people and a parent/guardian can attend.
