Run/Walk Around Europe-Update

Congratulations to the boys of St. Joseph’s who completed the first stage of our Run/Walk around Europe. The boys completed 530KM on Friday which got them to London and a small part of the way towards our next stop which is Lisbon. After Lisbon our next port of call will be Madrid before moving on to Paris.
Also a big well done to Mr. Carberry’s class who completed the most kilomnteres this week. They travelled an impressive 82.6KM. Let’s see if any class can beat that this week!!!

Run/Walk Around Europe!!!

At today’s Active Schools Committee our committee each received their Active Schools Badge and Playground Leaders jacket. They also launched our next project which is Run/Walk Around Europe. This will involve all classes running as much as they can during lunch breaks and the distances they run will be accumulated to see how many European Cities they get to visit. The Active Schools Committee members will record the distances and our website will be updated each week to let everyone know how far we’ve ran!!!
Our first target is London!!!

Garda Sports Day!!!

Well done to the boys from St. Josephs who represented the school so well at the recent Garda Sports Day. In what is an annual event that is always eagerly anticipated by students from all over Drogheda, it was great that the weather held up and allowed the students of Drogheda to demonstrate their athletic prowess. St. Josephs were well represented and competitive in all events and managed to take two medals in total back to Sundays Gate. A big congrats to all the boys and a big thank you to Mr. Mulroy for preparing the boys for the event.
A special word of thanks to the Garda Síochana of Drogheda for what is always a well run and exciting event and the O’Raghallaighs GFC for providing the facilities.

3-D Printing Workshop

As part of the Louth Science Festival the boys in R9 were treated to a 3-D printing workshop in Drogheda Library. The boys were extremely interested and engaged in the lesson and as a souvenir we got to take back to school a 3-D printed hand. 6E10AF68-D02C-464C-8632-A24CE696B3ACFC154CEB-46CD-448B-A962-84881E394450C5BBC805-5A70-4442-9C61-123DAEB9882A E753E0A2-73F2-424C-A3DB-13749DE4250C

Halloween Quiz

A huge thank you to all families who turned out in such numbers to support our first family Halloween Quiz. We  hope that you enjoyed the event as much as we enjoyed hosting it. Many hours of hard work and preparation went in to making the event a success from Ms Horan and the organising committee to the Parents Association,Student Council and all staff gave so generously of their free time.

The Halloween Quiz was a wonderful fun way to celebrate the end of the first half term of the school year. Enjoy the mid term break, have a happy, fun and most importantly safe holiday and I look forward to  to seeing everybody back on the 5th of November ready to get back to work.
