Last week was Science Week and to celebate it we had several events in St. Joseph’s. Science jounalist Sean Duke of the Irish Times visited 4th classes on Monday 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 also did some exciting experiments with light and one class even made their own (sugar-free) sweets! Click for more photos.


Many thanks to all the boys for their shoeboxes. Team Hope collected over 100 presents from our school today! Your kindness will bring hope, lots of joy and excited laughter to children who are struggling in poverty or with the effects of conflicts in Eastern Europe.  

It is with sadness that we say goodbye to George Higgins, our school caretaker who died on Friday. We attended his funeral mass in St Agnes Church today to pray with his family and friends.
We will miss George so much – he was a great friend and loyal supporter of St Joseph’s. May he rest in peace. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
