Poetry in the Digital Age


On the 19th of May 2015 we went to the Ark with our teacher Mr O’ Flynn and Principal Mrs McCabe. We went to the Ark to collect the prize that our class was awarded for our poetry project. This project consisted of a poem said while images matching each line of the poem. The project was not the only project there. There were many other projects sent in by different schools. Once we set up our project we went down to the greetings.

From there we were sent down to the basement where we were greeted by a rapper from Co. Cork. He gave us a one hour workshop. In this time he showed us how easy it was to create your own rap. We made a rap and recorded it using the rapper’s computer. It was great fun. Then we had a lunch break then some of the awards were handed out.

We didn’t receive ours for we were to be handed it later by the minister of education, Jan O’ Sullivan. Then we went up to our projects and everyone viewed each others. The Minister arrived at around one o’clock. She viewed our project and we explained what we were doing. Then we went down to get our picture taken with the minister and our prize. We had a great day and enjoyed it immensely.

Art Exhibition 2015

Our annual art exhibition is now on show in the Parish Hall in Terenure. This is a display of the fantastic creations by all pupils in the school from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. The art exhibition is organised by the Parent Association in St. Joseph’s and we would like to thank them for the huge amount of work they put in to mounting this exhibition. A special word of thanks to Mr. Denis O’Reilly for providing the exhibition stands.

Creative Learning



Mr O’Flynn’s, 5th class, participated in a Creative Learning Project with other schools. The objective was to encourage pupils to learn in a more creative and exciting way. The boys in 5th class learned chose poems and learned them. They used their ICT skills to locate appropriate images on the internet. They then recorded the poems using the images as a background. They were highly commended for their efforts.
