Art for All

This week we had our Art for All exhibition in the hall. Pupils from Second to Sixth had their art work put on display and parents and children from other schools were invited to see the great work done by the boys in St. Joseph’s. The guest book was filled with comments of appreciation for the art on display. Well done to everyone and a special thanks to our S.N.A.s for all their hard work in the hall. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Grandparent’s Day

Every year during Catholic Schools week the boys in Second class invite their grandparents in to see the school. The school band and choir entertain our guests but we have no doubt that the boys are well entertained by the grandparents when they share memories of their school days.

Shoe Box Appeal

St. Joseph’s has a long and proud tradition of giving to charity. Over the years we have been involved in many different charitable causes and this year was no exception. When we learnt of the increase in homelessness in Clondalkin we decided to get involved in a shoe box appeal for young homeless people in our neighbourhood. Ms. Lynch led the way and soon enough the great spirit of giving quickly resulted in a steady flow of shoe boxes. I think we were all taken aback by the generosity of our school families and the determination of the boys to do some good for the people in our community. We are so proud of the boys as every donation helped t0 make the world a better place for someone in need. Well done and thank you so much.

Biodiversity Day

We recently had an assembly to celebrate being awarded a Green Schools flag for Biodiversity. We recounted the steps we took to get the award: boys read poems on Biodiversity and several speeches were made on the topic, including a presentation by Sean Meehan from the Irish Wildlife Trust. Prior to the day George took many classes out for a walk around the school to remind us of how biodiverse our school is. After the flag raising ceremony we all had ice cream from a visiting ice cream van. To learn more about our efforts to get a biodiversity flag and promote biodiversity in the school please visit the Green School link on our website.
