Last week, pupils and teachers from 3rd to 6th as well as our visitors from Barcelona enjoyed an amazingly imaginative theatrical performance of “The Secret Garden” by M&M Productions from Scotland. Click for more photos.
This week we welcome 15 boys and girls from Escola Sant Ignasi in Barcelona. They will join some classes, play some sport, learn about Ireland and make new friends in St. Joseph´s. We started on Monday with a quiz which gave our boys a chance to introduce themselves to our guests. Later in the week, we had a “Festival of Talent”, Hurling Coaching, Board Games and Presentations about life in Barcelona and an amazing theatrical performance by M&M Productions from Scotland.
We are very grateful to Mark Caslin of Larkview FC who has kindly sponsored a beautiful new set of gear for our school teams. Our soccer and hurling teams have started playing league matches after the long winter, while we will also have more cross country and track events. Our Active Weeks are in May (with Sports evening on Weds 23rd) and we are hoping our German PE expert, Melina will be here for a few weeks to get us all moving like this.
