Cumann na mBunscol

Our Cumann na mBunscol football season is underway and will run to Halloween break. Each boy in 5th and 6th class will get to play a few matches for the school mostly against our friendly local rival schools!!

Last week, our senior team played two great matches v St. Pius & St. Olaf’s winning one and losing one.  More photos. Junior team photos here.

We wish to think NRB Engineering who have sponsored two new sets of jerseys for the school.

Community Schools Night in Faughs

St. Joseph’s boys had an enjoyable time at Faughs’ Community Project Awards on Thursday night.  Local schools entered the ball wall designs competition and the art work was based on the theme of the importance of sport and our local clubs to our community of families during Covid.

The evening was presented by RTE’s Joanne Cantwell and refreshments were provided for all on the night. Each school got 3 awards for their designs and the judges decided on 2 for the actual ball wall.

Well done to our boys for their entries which were colourful, thoughtful and very creative. Congratulations to Cheeverstown and St Pius Schools for securing a double win – their designs will be painted on the wall by local Graffiti Artist Joanne Murphy.

3rd and 4th Class Sports Day

Our 3rd and 4th class pupils had another sunny day for their sports events which took place in the VEC grounds. Thanks to all who brought up equipment and who helped out on the day.  The boys had a wonderful time. Many parents were able to make it but for those who couldn’t here’s a little video of the day. Enjoy!

Infants Sports Day in Bushy Park

Our junior and senior infants had an active fun day yesterday in Bushy Park with their teachers and SNAs.  The sun shone all day!  Activities of all kinds were set up by the teachers and SNAs with great help from the boys in 6th class assigned to each infant class.  Many thanks to all  for organising a great event and making sure the equipment and ice creams were available for every child.   Everyone went home with a big smile on their face and all slept well last night!
