Indoor Football Tournament


Some boys from third class participated in a Sciath na Scol football tournament today. Goals and points were scored by hand passing or kicking the ball into a circular net that was mounted to the wall.

The boys were outstanding. They were courageous, skillful and determined. The future of St. Joseph’s football endeavours look promising!!

Presentation Day Prizes

In celebration of Presentation Day on the 21st of November, the infant classes were asked to colour a picture of Edmund Rice.  All the boys coloured beautiful pictures.  It was very difficult to choose three boys to receive prizes.

The senior classes were asked to write a poem about Edmund Rice.  Two boys were asked to say their poems in front of the school during assembly on Friday and received homework passes for their excellent efforts.

Physical Literacy in 3rd Class


Some photos of yesterday’s physical literacy class with Kevin Murray. Each boy ran/walked 1.2 km in total… that was 10 laps of 120 metres. The aim was to run each lap at a consistent speed, and at a 60% exertion rate. The boys were very impressive!
