Congratulations to the first group of boys who were awarded the Principal’s Awards this week. They enjoyed the chats over hot chocolate in the staff room on Monday.
Thank you so much to all the parents of our Junior and Senior Infant boys, who very kindly donated money for Aistear toys and resources! We bought loads of nice things, and the boys are loving them!
We had a great time in Junior Infants in the lead up to Christmas! We really enjoyed our Christmas concert and Christmas Aistear!
In Aistear we made Christmas tree decorations, pretended to be elves in the workshop making toys using recycled materials, cut out wish lists and wrote to Santa in the North Pole.
The Senior Infants had so much fun preparing for Christmas. We talked a lot about the story of the First Christmas, and about What Christmas means to us. We made 2 short videos which we hope you will enjoy! 🙂
We had Christmas Jumper day today in St. Joseph’s NS and €360 was raised for Penny Dinners today.
The Student Council held an art fundraiser to raise money for garden games. They presented the winners with the prizes today. Fifty children entered the competition so it was very successful.
Every year the pupils of St. Joseph’s NS invite their parents and relations to a Christmas Carol Service in the Sacred Hear Church. Each class performs. This year the performances were exceptional. There were drums, bodhrán’s, harmonies, poems, carols and a drama. It was such an enjoyable experience. The PA provided teas and cakes in the hall afterwards.
