Welcome for plans to mark heritage of former St Joseph's School SIte
In the past couple of months as work has taken place to knock down the old building a number of former pupils have spoken to me about their wish for the history of the site to be acknowledged. I raised this with the City Development Department asked for my views on the street name I made my view known that I think that it should reference the former use of the site. Therefore I was glad when the proposed name suggested was St Joseph's Court. I think that this will allow the history of the site and the over eighty years of education to be marked. I am glad to say that the new school is going from strength to strength on its new site but I felt it was important to acknowledge the history and heritage of this site.
