We were delighted to welcome two physiotherapy students from UCD to talk to the boys from 3rd to 6th classes about exercise and healthy eating. Ben Kirwan and Kieran Purcell gave very informative and useful presentations. Many thanks to them.
Tommy, the hurling coach, came in to give the classes a ‘taster session’ in hurling. The infants classes showed great promise and we can expect that many of them will represent the school in Croke Park in the future.
The boys and girls from Sant Ignasi had a very active day on Wednesday. They were introduced to Gaelic football, they had a session of circuits with the parents and headed off to Google for the afternoon.
Today we welcomed our friends from Sant Ignasi School in Barcelona. They have visited our school each year for the past 5 years. It is always brings great excitement to St. Joseph’s. It is the only time we have girls in our classrooms.
Ms Bleahene’s class welcomed them and they played games in ‘get to know you’ session. Many thanks to Ms. Bleahene and Ms O’Riordan for organising this for the boys and girls. The pupils were then introduced to the finer skills of hurling by Tommy, our hurling coach.
They are looking forward to being hosted by families in the school this afternoon. Many thanks to to the families for offering to host the pupils.
