Our Cumann na mBunscol school football season is well under way and we have two junior teams and two senior teams. They will be in weekly action every week up to Halloween.
We are also continuing a long tradition in St. Joseph´s by running a 3rd and 4th class football league in the first term.

Well done to all the boys from 4th class who presented their projects on “My Local Hero” at Faughs Community Schools Night last week. St. Joseph´s past-pupil Danny O’Reilly of the Coronas presented the prizes. Winners were Conor, Tommy and Issac. More Photos here.

We are delighted to have been awarded another Excellence in Science award from Science Foundation Ireland for our work on Science, Technology and Maths(STEM). This is our second year in a row achieving this STEM award and it is fantastic to see all the science, technology, engineering and Maths being carried out in our school with such enthusiasm. Thanks to all the boys and teachers for their efforts and it is obvious that they had fun taking part in the Awards programme this year. You can see some of our work in these areas here. Well done everyone!
