Celebrating 150 Years

We had a very enjoyable evening with some of our past pupils, parents and teachers on Thursday, March 23rd in the Parish Hall. Some of our former pupils had a chance to renew old acquaintances and reminisce on their primary school days in St. Joseph’s

Today we had a dress up day to finish off our week of celebrations. We had some very sad and cross looking faces as we went back to the ‘good old’ school days.

Balloon Release POP !!!

Our balloon release turned into a balloon POP which was much more fun – all of Terenure could hear our celebrations!
