For the third year in a row we were delighted to see past pupils Eoghan and Denis arrive with their good buddy Sam. The boys from 3rd & 4th were presented with their league medals by Denis. Click to see all photos.

This week is the 2017 European Week of Sport and Physical Activity and here in St. Joseph´s we have an exciting week planned culminating in National Fitness Day on Friday when some boys will be taking on the teachers in a sports challenge! St. Joseph´s was recently nominated for the #BeActive Education Award by the Irish Sports Council and narrowly missed representing Ireland at the European awards in conjunction with this week.

We are continuing a long tradition in St. Joseph´s by running a 3rd and 4th class football league in the first term. It started yesterday and will continue for the next four Wednesdays, weather permitting. Some present football Dublin superstars (Eoghan O´Gara and Denis Bastick) played their first football matches in this league many years ago. Thanks to Mr. Concannon for organising, the other teachers who helped supervise and the 6th class boys who are refereeing. Click below to see more photos.

Congratulations to the senior hurling team and their managers Mr. Reale and Mr. O’Riain on winning the Sciath Marino, in Croke Park. The boys led from start to finish after reaching half time with a comfortable lead. There was a very high standard of hurling on show with some excellent scores. Ballyroan, put up a spirited display in the second half to narrow the scoreline but St. Joseph’s emerged as comfortable winners in the end.

Unfortunately, the weather let us down again this year for our school sports and we had to postpone it. However, on Friday the sun shone, the boys put on the competition faces and we had a great day in the VEC grounds.
