R6 and R7 visited Oldbridge House last Thursday.
They got a bus to Tullyallen School and from there walked through the new walkway, Belnumber Wood Way, to King William’s Glen, part of the site of the Battle of the Boyne 1690.
After spending some time at Oldbridge House, they walked along the Boardwalk to the ramparts and Dominic’s Park. The sun was splitting the stones all day.
There were some very tired legs after the long day’s walking but all boys and teachers had a fun-packed and educational trip.
A massive well done to all the boys that took part in the Boyne Atheletics Club Challenge Cup. The boys performed very well across all races, from the 100m sprints all the way up to the lung busting 300m race.
The boys also had great success in the 4x100m relay races.
As you will see from the photos there was a huge haul of medals brought back from the Lourdes Stadium.
Last week the boys were lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet a local hero and an inter-county football star.
Louth footballer and captain of the two in a row Senior County Champions, The Newtown Blues, Andy McDonnell paid a visit to the school to talk all things football, answer the many questions that were put to him and he also put the Gaelic football team through their paces with training a session.
The boys picked up some expert tips about the importance of nutrition as well as developing their skills with new training drills.
We would like to thank Andy for offering up his time and hopefully his visit will inspire future football stars from St. Joseph’s.
