Events

Last week was Science Week and to celebate it we had several events in St. Joseph’s. Science jounalist Sean Duke of the Irish Times visited 4th classes on Monday and on Wednesday the parish hall was a hive of (noisy) activity as 1st to 6th classes showed off a variety of experiments to the whole school. Infant classes also did some exciting experiments with light and one class even made their own (sugar-free) sweets! Click for more photos.

 

Today, our deputy principal, Mr. Declan Donnelly, retires as he completes 40 years of sterling service to St. Joseph´s. Having started as a class teacher on July 1st 1977, he would have seen around 3000 boys pass through the school in his time here. Over the last twenty five years, his pioneering work in the area of ICT in education has attracted national attention and greatly benefitted the whole school community. He will be missed by all in St. Joseph´s and we wish him and his wife, Pam a long and happy retirement. We wish everybody else a happy and safe summer holiday and remind you that the school reopens on Thurs. Aug. 31st at 8.50am!
Best wishes, Anne McCabe
