The students from the remaining classes made a Guard of Honour for the 6th class pupils as they left the school for the last time. The Junior and Senior Infants were at the gates. The 6th class students mentored these students during the year.
On our last day of school we were privileged to welcome Tánaiste Simon Coveney to St. Joseph’s. The Bodhrán Bookills played before the Tánaiste addressed the students of the school. A bodhrán was presented to the Tánaiste by a 5th class pupil. Tánaiste Coveney then visited some of the classes and had a chat with the boys. It was a great way to end the school year 2017/2018.
The school celebrated the retirement of Mr. Clarke in the shade of the trees in the school forest yesterday. Poems, songs and many memories were shared. Mr. Clarke has been teaching in St. Joe’s for 15 years and will be missed by teachers and pupils. Go n-éirí an bóthar leat.
The Pope, Blues Brothers and the BFG were just some of the people who turned up to St. Joseph’s this morning.
Happy Holidays to all our students and families. We hope you have safe and fun filled holidays.

Junior Infants went on a Teddy Bear Picnic. We headed to the field where each boy introduced their teddy to the class. We then had ice cream and enjoyed playing with bubbles in the sun. Thanks to Robert for bringing in delicious buns for us too!
Third class boys undertook a walking tour today visiting some of the city’s bridges and quays. The boys followed a route on a map and identified quays and bridges as they walked, on their maps.
