Barcelona Visitors

Our friends from Sant Ignasi school in Barcelona arrived on Tuesday for their annual visit to St. Josephs. We look forward to a week of many and varied activities.
Tuesday was a very active day as they participated in a tag rugby blitz in Terenure College organised by Leinster Rugby. Mr Brennan’s class also took part as well as pupils from Terenure College, Ballyroan and St. Pius X. It was a very well organised event with some future rugby stars on show.
Tommy, coach with Faughs’ Hurling Club, introduced the Catalan pupils to hurling and the boys in 3rd class showed them how to code in Scratch.

‘Bus Stopping’ drama in Mr. O’Flynn’s Class

The 2016 Terenure Spring Drama competition contained four schools in the final , one of which was the boys  of Room 10 ,St Josephs . Their play was called “ Bus Stopping “, a comedy drama about four very different ladies waiting patiently and impatiently for a bus to come . The result is some unforeseen consequences . The boys gave a sensational performance on the night and ended the play with a song and dance number that brought the house down . The didn’t win unfortunately but as they were the first fourth class ever to reach the final it gave testament to their level of acting abilities. A few weeks later on from the tension of the final , the boys performed the play in the hall of Presentation Girls School for the parents of St Josephs . What made this event so special was that all donations given on the night went to the worthy cause of Aoife Beary , the girl injured in the balcony accident in Berkely California . Over one thousand euros was raised and the night was a resounding success . Everyone a winner . Many  thanks to all who gave their support on the night and to Ms Hume for the use of their super hall and school . Next year’s drama is almost ready to go to press. Watch this space !
