Events

Congratulations to Conan from 1st class who wowed a nationwide audience on Ireland´s Got Mór Talent with his karate and acting skills. Meanwhile Joe, Solomon and Reuben all won prizes at the prestigious Feis Ceoil music festival recently. Well done boys!

Well done to our four credit union quiz teams who represented the school last Friday in Knocklyon. After a tough 72-question battle with our friends from neighbouring schools, Ballyroan came out on top in both the junior and senior quizzes. Congratulations to them and our thanks to Rathfarnham and District Credit Union and especially Michelle who organised a very successful night.  UPDATE- Well done to our two teams from 5th class who took part in the Zion Parish school quiz. One of our teams came out on top after a close contest. Click on photo to see all our teams.

Last week was Science Week and to celebrate it we had several events in St. Joseph’s. Science journalist Sean Duke of the Irish Times visited 4th classes 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  visited Imaginosity for a Science show, did some exciting light experiments, one class made butter and another 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
