As we near the last day of school, the staff of St. Joseph’s would like to wish all it’s students and families a happy, safe and fun summer. It has been a great year, rich with new experiences.
Sadly, Mr. O’Connor has decided to retire and tomorrow will be his last day at St. Josephs. He has taught in the school for 28 years. He has taught almost 900 boys during his time in the school. Undoubtedly they have very fond memories of him. His sense of humour and calm disposition will be missed by pupils and teachers alike. We wish him best in his retirement.
Alas, we must also say goodbye to Mr. Twomey who has been teaching the junior infants since January. He trained the hurling team for the Sciath na Scol and prepared 4th class to compete in the Lough League. Even though he was here for a short time, we will miss him. We wish him luck in his next school.
