This morning, the boys from G1, G2 and G3 released the worms that have been living in our classrooms back into the garden. We hope they enjoyed their stay in the Worm Hotels.
As part of the Proclamation Day celebrations we constructed three of the buildings that were central to the 1916 Easter Rising. The G.P.O., City Hall and Liberty Hall. They were displayed in the library with all the other class projects.
These boys all took part in the ceremony. Tadhg and Enoch are part of the band who performed ‘Foggy Dew’, Ahmed, Conor and Franz were part of a short Irish drama.
They all did a fantastic job.
On Wednesday the 2nd of March 2016 R7 went into the basketball court to do Gaelic. Gaelic took 30 mins and we all had a good time.
Our next Active Schools event will be taking place on Sunday, March 13th. The event is in association with “Rith 2016″. This event is a nationwide initiative that involves 700 schools using athletics to promote Seachtain na Gaeilge. (More details can be found on the website www.rith.ie) Each school will run 1km over the course of two weeks in a relay format. St Joseph’s will be running from the bottom of Trinity Street to Scotch Hall on Sunday the 13th of March at approximately 12pm. The Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson of our Active Schools Committee will receive and carry the baton on behalf of our school.
We would like to invite all members of our school community to partake in this extremely positive event. The arrangements for the day will be for everyone to meet on the Fair Green at 11:45. We will walk to Trinity Street where we will then run/walk the kilometre from Trinity Street to Scotch Hall as a group.
We look forward to taking part in this event as a school and hope that you can find the time to join us in a fun filled morning.
