Active School

Our Cumann na mBunscol school football season is well under way and we have two junior teams and two senior teams. They will be in weekly action every week up to Halloween.
We are also continuing a long tradition in St. Joseph´s by running a 3rd and 4th class football league in the first term.

Well done to all the boys from 4th class who presented their projects on “My Local Hero” at Faughs Community Schools Night last week. St. Joseph´s past-pupil Danny O’Reilly of the Coronas presented the prizes. Winners were Conor, Tommy and Issac. More Photos here.

A great effort by the Joeys boys over two days in Santry after some last minute coaching with Melina. Louis (60m h) and Tom (600m) both took bronze medals with Gareth taking silver also in the 600m to follow up his gold in the recent South Dublin cross country champions race. Best result was from Alex who threw a great 10.77m to win the shot put. You can see a clip of Louis´ heat victory on RTE here at 2.05. In the relays, the Under 10s just missed a medal after two great runs but the three older teams all bagged silver medals after some close contests and slick baton changing. Our thanks to Fergus and William of Sherry Fitzgerald Lettings who have generously sponsored new kit for our athletes.  Photos here  Videos

As we head into sunny days and long, bright evenings we are promoting an active, healthy lifestyle over the next few weeks with the help of our visiting PE expert, Melina from Munich University.
Sports evening (see provisional schedule) will be on Weds. May 23rd at 6.30pm in the VEC Grounds, Templeogue Rd. Other activities include Walk to School, Fyffes Fit Squad, tennis and cricket coaching, Yoga with Ms. Larmer, before-school athletics training for Santry, tag rugby, after-school hurling(senior and junior teams), Terenure College Gaelic football blitz and more. Photos will be added to this gallery.

We are very grateful to Mark Caslin of Larkview FC who has kindly sponsored a beautiful new set of gear for our school teams. Our soccer and hurling teams have started playing league matches after the long winter, while we will also have more cross country and track events. Our Active Weeks are in May (with Sports evening on Weds 23rd) and we are hoping our German PE expert, Melina will be here for a few weeks to get us all moving like this.
