Our First Class Tie Presentation Cermony

Today we saw the girls and boys in Ms. Carville’s and Mr. Byrne’s first classes recieve their very first school tie!

Each tie contains our traditional school colours and represents the next step on their educational journey.

Each pupil was presented with their tie by our Principal Ms. Bradley.

The ceremony marked another milestone for our first class girls and boys and we hope their tie will serve them well throughout thier time in St Joseph’s!

First Confession Ceremony

On Friday our second class pupils celebrated their First Confession. This is a very important step on the way to thier First Communion and we marked the occasion with a beautiful ceremony in our PE Hall. The ceremony was attended by our chaplin Fr. Des, our Principal Ms. Bradley and was presided over by our HSCL Ms. Lamont.

The boys showed great respect and reverence for such an important occasion and performed two beautiful songs.

A big thank you goes to Ms. Gregory and Ms. Maher have done wonderful work in preparing the boys for this occasion and also to Ms. Lamont for organising such a wonderful ceremony.

Finally, a huge thank you goes to the families of our First Confession candidates for their help in preparing the boys for this special occasion.

Sixth Class Online Assembly

Our 6th classes along with the help of Mr. Tobin and Ms. Carville have spent the last few weeks preparing our Online Assembly. The boys had great fun performing, dancing, interviewing, recording and editing the whole project!! We reported on all the happenings in St. Joseph’s since the beginning of the year including the opening of our first ASD class, GAA month, Maths Week and lots more!

We used green screen technology along with our Ipads to create some fun and interesting scenes.  Our school commuity can view it here on our website.

Well done to all the boys!!
