Over a hundred boys from the school wowed a huge audience last night at Córfhéile in the National Basketball Arena. Ms. Maher, Ms. Tynan and Ms. Rooney were delighted with the beautiful performances of their classes. Our special thanks to Ms. Maher who is one of the main organisers of the event which goes on all week with hundreds of schools involved. Click for more photos. Judge’s report.

St Joseph’s B.N.S. is striving to achieve a physically educated and physically active
school community. With help from our teachers, students, parents and wider community
we hope that in 2020 our school will be recognised as an official ‘Active School’. As
always, when the school community puts our minds to something we can achieve big
things. We set up our Active School Committee with members from every class.
A key part of the ASF process is finding ways to encourage less active children to
ENJOY physical activity more. Therefore, it is essential that the voice of less active
children is represented alongside the voice of more active children on the ASF
Committee.
We organised a poster and slogan competition for the whole school. Each child from 1st to 6th class designed an active poster with an active slogan somewhere on their poster. A winner was picked from each class and an overall winner was chosen from the whole school. The overall winner was Aaron from 6th class. Our new Active School slogan is ‘Climb, Jump, Swim, Run…..Make your fitness number one!’. Everyone had great fun doing the competition. Here are some photos of the winners and the overall winner accepting his prize.
