Parents

Last week we had many activities for ‘Irish Road Safety Week’ where the pupils learned about road safety and about wearing hi-vis clothing, bag covers and vests to and from school.
We focussed on:
· The Safe Cross Code
· Be safe, be seen
· Wearing seatbelts
· Cycle safety
· Car safety
· Pedestrian safety

Fun stuff sections, quizzes and teacher packs are also available there.
Congratulations to our lucky winners of our Road Safety Poster Awareness Campaign!

We want to say a special welcome to our two new classes of fantastic Junior Infants who started school today and had a fun first day with Ms. Mulhall and Ms. Harte. We look forward to seeing them grow and develop over the next eight years. Meanwhile we welcome everyone else back to school to and say “Enjoy!”

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
