The staff and pupils had a magical day today when John Spillane came to play for us in the PBC theatre. It was particularly special as John is a past pupil of the school and has very fond memories of his school days. The Bodhrán Bookills welcomed John back with a melody of songs.
John sang many songs with the boys including Báidín Fheilimí, An Poc ar Buile and Trasna na dTonnta, to name but a few. John was instrumental in making new memories for our present pupils.
St. Joseph’s NS will close today at 12 pm to facilitate staff training on Child Protection. Please ensure that your son is picked up on time.
The cake sale that was held in the school on Friday was a success. It was organised by the Parents Association but run by the 6th class boys. There was such a variety of cakes donated by the families of St. Joe’s including chocolate cakes, rice krispie buns, butterfly cakes, cup cakes, brownies, pavlova and cheesecake. Cakes that were left over were donated to Penny Dinners and they were delighted to receive such delicious cakes. €517 was raised and the money will be used towards the cost of the Sciath na Scol buses. Thank you to all those families who supported the sale.
The 1st class boys on the Green School Committee have made a wonderful nature table.
They’re growing daffodils, chives, carrots and peas…
1st Class Boys were incredible trying out their new relay skills!
We are so proud of these two students who were awarded with the prestigious Pat Cox and Edmund Rice awards. They have displayed the admirable qualities of respect, integrity, courageousness and flexibility. They have developed a great sense of community and play a large and important role in our school community. Maith sibh!
