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!!

Halloween Events for parents

Have  a Happy and Safe Halloween

Here are a few events that are happening around the country:


Arcimboldo Autumn Art

This week in G6 we have been busy collecting leaves from our school and transforming these into autumn art inspired by the Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. Arcimboldo used plants, fruits, nuts and seeds to create paintings of people.


The boys had great fun and showed real creativity to come up with fantastic portraits. Check out our pictures and video below.  IMG_1787 IMG_1773 IMG_1774 IMG_1775 IMG_1776 IMG_1777 IMG_1781
