The 4th Class boys took part in a blitz recently against Harestown NS, Tullyallen NS and St. Pauls NS. They performed incredibly well winning all three of their matches. The blitz was played in a great spirit. Well done to all the boys and their coaches, Mr. Mulroy, Mr. Carberry and Mr. O’Connor!!!
On Friday afternoon, St. Joseph’s participated in the National Fitness Day for the first time. A fitness challenge was organised where the pupils of 5th and 6th classes took on a selection of St. Joseph’s teachers. There were 5 events that challenged a wide range of skills and fitness levels. After 40 minutes of intense activities the teachers emerged victorious but not after being pushed all teh way by the pupils. Well done to all and a big thank you to the boys on the Active School Committee!!!
Here at St. Joseph’s we are delighted to announce that our journey to our second Active Schools Flag has begun!!!
A new committee was elected with class representatives from each of the 3rd’s, 4th’s, 5th’s and 6th classes joining the committee.
Our first event of the year will be taking place this Friday afternoon and it’s going top be a good one. Boys from 5th and 6th class are taking on the teachers in a St. Joseph’s CBS fitness challenge, Teachers vs Pupils.
Check in this Friday for a full report of the event, pictures and most importantly to see who will emerge victorious!!!
This week we played spikeball in PE. Spikeball is a type of volleyball. There are two teams with six on each team. The aim of the game is to get as many points as you can. We had lots of fun.
