Christmas has arrived in St Joseph’s

Many of our parents volunteered to decorate our school at the weekend. Staff and pupils were met with outdoor Christmas lights this morning when we entered the school. The magic continued as the boys wandered towards the back of the school and saw the wooded area was transformed into a Winter Wonderland.

The wonder continued as the boys entered the school building and there were Christmas trees, a crib and garlands to be seen. There were Santas and snowmen overlooking the hallways. The many hours spent getting the school to look so magical was worth it as the children were in awe this morning.

A huge thank you to those parents who were involved in the decorating of the school. The festive season has surely begun…

The Barrs bring the Seán Óg Cup to Joes

Management and team players of the St. Finbarr’s hurling team who beat the Rockies in the Senior Hurling Championship final visited St. Joseph’s with the cup. It was a very joyous occasion as two past pupils are on the team. Two 6th class students who are members of the Barr’s club welcomed them back to the school. The Bodhrán Bookills played for the players. There were words of encouragement from Ethan Twomey and Eoin Keane as they advised the boys to go and play for fun and always persevere. Each class had the opportunity to have their photo taken with the players and cup.
