Essays-The Bell Rock Lighthouse

Last week was Science Week and to celebrate it we had several events in St. Joseph’s. Science journalist Sean Duke of the Irish Times visited 4th classes 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  visited Imaginosity for a Science show, did some exciting light experiments, one class made butter and another 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.
