Our boys love active learning – life is good here in St Joseph’s.
Gardening, skipping, playing ball, dancing, playing tag, jumping and having fun!
Archbishop Dermot Farrell sent this message to parents of pupils who are to make their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. He hopes that this gives some clarity and detail on how this might happen this year.

Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, the day before Lent begins. It is the most wonderful Tuesday of all, for we are given free rein to pile our plates high with pancakes thick and thin, slathering them with a selection of sweet and savoury spreads and toppings. Our boys have spoken and their favourite toppings include chocolate spread, lemon and sugar, banana, strawberries and some of you like pancakes just the way they are – without any toppings. By the volume of photos and videos of ‘flipping good fun’ we know you all had a great day. Hope the tummies were not too full going to bed!
Here’s a very tasty photo of a pancake creation – worthy of any food magazine sent in by one of our sixth class pupils. Well done indeed.
Who receives the most Valentine’s Day cards?
Well rumour has it – teachers do!
Just look at the fabulous digital artwork by our infants above. Below see the beautiful roses and chocolate brownies made by our 5th class boys for their loved ones!
Thank you boys for all the lovely cards, kind words and pictures – we send you all our sweetest, happiest wishes.
Our infant classes learned about the Chinese New Year, which is also called the Spring Festival.
Among other Chinese New Year traditions is the thorough cleaning of one’s home – Jerry our caretaker, and our cleaning staff have been very busy this month, maintaining, deep cleaning, painting and freshening up our classrooms, cubicles and corridors – we are ready to get back to school soon – we can’t wait to see you all again!
