St Joseph’s win Sciath na Scol Football Final

Well done to our boys who won well in Páirc Uí Chaoimh today. It was a great team performance. St Joe’s kicked some fantastic scores and defended excellently. They worked hard and supported each other throughout.

It was an amazing experience walking out onto the field in Páirc Uí Chaoimh to a roaring crowd for the first time. The boys were never over awed and rose to the occasion, we hope we’ll be seeing them back out again in the future!

Well done to the boys for the excellent manners and sportsmanship they have shown throughout the whole competition, they have been a joy to work with and they deserve the many compliments other schools have given them for their football and their attitude.

Thanks to all the families who were able to come and support the footballers on their big day. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Munster Chess League Success

Well done to one of our Fifth Class boys who competed in the Munster Chess League. He represented Cork in Division 2, playing against competitors from Dungarvan and Ennis, winning his match against the Dungarvan entrant.

We are very proud of this young man who learned how to play chess with us in school and then went from strength to strength by practicing and challenging himself to play against better and better opponents. Despite being very young, he is already holding his own against experienced players. This is a result is dedication and enthusiasm. Keep up the good work!

They’ve got rhythm!

Once the boys in 5th were well practised in recognising and playing a variety of rhythms (crotchets, quavers, triplets and minims), they learned how to keep a steady tempo and enjoyed using BOOMWHACKERS !

Bhuaidh foireann Naomh Fionnbarra Fé 9 Corn Canty that an deaireadh seachtain agus bhí cúigear as Rang a Trí ar an bhfoireann. Ba mhór an ócáid é mar seo an chéad uair a bhuaigh Naomh Fionnnbarra an corn seo agus chomh maith le sin, bhí duine de mhúintir Canty ag imirt ar an bhfoireann.

Comhgairdeas a bhuachaillí!

St Finbarr’s U9 team won the Canty Cup over the weekend and there were five boys from 3rd Class on the team. It was a big occasion because it was the first time St Finbarr’s have won this cup and, as well as that, a member of the Canty family was playing on the team.

Congratulation boys!

Musical notes in 5th Class!

The boys in 5th class recently analysed various sections of the musical masterpiece: “The Carnival of the animals” written by the french composer ⭐Saint Saëns.⭐

They identified which instruments were being played in different sections of the musical score and even had a competition to match each piece they heard with its correct animal name!

The class also learned about different types of rhythm and musical notation and designed their own crotchets, quavers, triplets and rests.

They are looking forward to writing their own percussion compositions very soon! 🥁 🎵 🎶
