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

Parents, schools, local shops and businesses, resident groups, sports clubs and health representatives have all being asked to give their support, to target the widest possible audience
