Boyne Athletics Club Challenge Cup

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.

Andy McDonnell Visits St. Joseph’s



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.

R8 did maths stations on 2d shapes. The boys were describing shapes at the first station, cutting out shapes at station two, tessellating shapes with lollipop sticks at station three, looking at symmetry at station four, and playing a game on the interactive whiteboard at the last station.
