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.

Learnstorm 2016 has started. Learnstorm is a teaching / learning tool available this year for 9 weeks. Pupils may access it in school or outside of school hours. The aim is to master as many topics as possible, earning points and badges as we go. Hints, supporting videos and step by step solutions are provided for every problem.

World Maths Week

We are preparing for World Maths Week by setting up our accounts on Mangahigh, World Education Games and Hour of Code. This month we have access to websites that will not be available after October so we hope to get lots of maths practice.
