We are delighted to present eight boys with the Principal’s Awards this week. They received these awards for trying their best in class, for listening to the teacher and classmates, for being kind and caring towards teachers and pupils. Maith sibh!
Today the boys form 5th and 6th played in their second Sciath na Scol football match against Scoil Barra. It was a home game and the players displayed courage, strength, positive attitude and cohesiveness against a strong team. St. Joseph’s NS won by a point.
Tá comhgairdeas tuilte acu ar fad.
Every week a student from each class is chosen for trying hard in class and for being respectful, polite and caring to classmates and teachers. Well done boys…we are very proud of you!!

Today all the pupils and staff of St. Joseph’s NS attended a school mass in the Sacred Heart Church. Fr. Tom was the mass celebrant. It gave us a chance to remember anyone that we have lost and to say a prayer for anyone we know who is sick.
It was a lovely Autumn day and all the pupils from Senior Infants to 6th class walked up to the Church. The 6th class boys were excellent walking the Senior Infants up.
The Sciath na Scol team will have their second game of the year on Wednesday the 4th against Scoil Barra, Ballincollig. The throw-in will be at 2.45 here in St. Joseph’s, with the game expected to be over by 3.30. Please ensure the panel have their gear with them (including gum shields) and all jerseys need to be brought to school on Wednesday by the entire panel of players. St. Joe’s Abú!
Our third class boys have settled back into school very well and have been very busy. Last week the boys enjoyed searching for right angles in the classroom with their ‘angle eaters’.
We have also spent time identifying the trees in our gardens through studying the leaves, fruit and bark of the trees.
