This week we welcome 15 boys and girls from Escola Sant Ignasi in Barcelona. They will join some classes, play some sport, learn about Ireland and make new friends in St. Joseph´s. We started on Monday with a quiz which gave our boys a chance to introduce themselves to our guests.

We are very grateful to Mark Caslin of Larkview FC who has kindly sponsored a beautiful new set of gear for our school teams. Our soccer and hurling teams have started playing league matches after the long winter, while we will also have more cross country and track events. Our Active Weeks are in May (with Sports evening on Weds23rd) and we are hoping our German PE expert, Melina will be here for a few weeks to get us all moving like this.

Congratulations to Conan from 1st class who wowed a nationwide audience on Ireland´s Got Mór Talent with his karate and acting skills. Meanwhile Joe, Solomon and Reuben all won prizes at the prestigious Feis Ceoil music festival recently. Well done boys!
