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


We welcome our guests from Sant Ignasi school in Barcelona this week. This has become an annual event and we are delighted to participate in this cultural exchange. 

We started with a monster table quiz. This gave our boys a chance to introduce themselves to our guests.
