well done to these boys who have been working diligently during the week. They were complimented on the kindness and care they regularly show to the other boys in their classes. Maith sibh.
The boys took part in a Rainbow Day on Thursday the 25th of October. They dressed up and made a contribution of €2 each towards the Mercy Hospital Fund. €350 was raised. Thank you to all those who made a contribution.
Some boys from Fourth Class recently enjoyed a great day out in Midleton where they took part in a futsal soccer tournament. After playing three group matches, St. Joe’s made it to the semi-final of the Champion’s League, but unfortunately were defeated. The boys showed great enthusiasm, skill and teamwork, while also having great fun.
A big step in our numeracy this year, First Class took their first steps in making numbers with place value this week. They’ll be renaming huge numbers before we know it!
The footballers from St Finbarr’s GAA club came to St Joseph’s today. The county champions brought the trophy Andy Scannell trophy with them.
They took the time to take some photos with the boys. They gave some great advice for sports and a healthy lifestyle. Play a sport, practice as much as you can, work hard in training and in school, eat health food. Most importantly, you should remember to enjoy yourself and make great memories with your friends.
Today, boys in third class enjoyed a real life maths lesson, whereby they used an Aldi catalogue to search for and record prices and where they solved problems relating to money.
We had a super spooky week in Senior Infants! Our Aistear theme was Halloween, and we got to dress up and have a Halloween party yesterday! 😊
