Arson charge on youth

A PUPIL at a South London Catholic school has been charged with arson following a fire at the school last week.

Last Wednesday's blaze al St Joseph's College, Beulah Hill, Upper Norwood, which was discovered at 4.45 pm when most pupils and members of staff had already gone home, severely damaged a section of the roof.

There were no casualties.

The school's headmaster, Br Anthony FSC, told the Catholic Herald that the fire, which started in a storeroom in the loft, had "not affected the normal operation of the school".

He added that since the blaze was over a stairway, no classrooms had been damaged and lessons continued as usual.

Br Anthony said that "a boy of the school has been charged with arson". He preferred not to comment further.

• Shoppers in SW Hertfordshire were faced with empty shelves last weekend as pupils from St Joan of Arc Catholic School, Rickmansworth responded in magnificent fashion to School Aid's Appeal for Ethiopia's famine victims.

Owing to a breakdown in communication, St. Joan's had only three days to collect wholewheat flour, sugar. split peas and lentils for Ethiopia's starving millions. Although time was short, the pupils managed to pack over one ton of food into two school minibuses for the first leg of the journey to East Africa.
