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!

A great effort by the Joeys boys over two days in Santry after some last minute coaching with Melina. Louis (60m h) and Tom (600m) both took bronze medals with Gareth taking silver also in the 600m to follow up his gold in the recent South Dublin cross country champions race. Best result was from Alex who threw a great 10.77m to win the shot put. You can see a clip of LouisĀ“ heat victory on RTE here at 2.05. In the relays, the Under 10s just missed a medal after two great runs but the three older teams all bagged silver medals after some close contests and slick baton changing. Our thanks to Fergus and William of Sherry Fitzgerald Lettings who have generously sponsored new kit for our athletes.  Photos here  Videos
