Congratulations to our boys in 6th Class. You are a wonderful group who’ll be missed in St Joe’s. You deserve all the praise you were given today. Beirigí bua! We know you’ll go far. Thanks to Mary O’Donoghue, Ms Kelleher and all the staff who organized the online ceremony.
Today we all played seven different sports in school. We had our sports day in school for the first time since 2019. Congr to all the boys did brilliantly on their first ever Sports Day and to the boys who gave them a good example. Thanks very much to Sixth Class and Ms Kelliher who the organised the stations.
Dimríomar seacht spóirt ar scoil inniú. Bhí Lá Spóirt again don chéad uair ó 2019. Comhgaideas do na páistí uile a d’éirigh go hiontach leo agus Donna buachaillí a thug a dea shampla dóibh. Go raibh míle maith agaibh Rang a Sé agus Ms Kelliher a d’eagraigh na stáisiún.
In December, the boys in 6th entered a science competition which was organised by the Physics Department in University College Limerick. Different teams in the class researched the physics behind different types of sport: For example: The physics of Tennis, Rugby, Hurling, Swimming, Basketball and Cricket and Soccer. We were delighted to hear that from a selection of entries from schools all over Ireland, all our projects reached the finals and the St. Joseph’s team that researched “The physics of Tennis” went on to be awarded 3rd place. We are very proud of all our boys. Well done!!
