Gaelic Blitz

On the 9th of September 40 boys from 5th and 6th were picked to play in a blitz organised by Round Tower’s GAA club against different schools in the area. Mr. Doherty and Mr. Fitzgerald took 20 boys each. Group 1 was managed by MR. Fitzgerald and group 2 was managed by Mr. Doherty.
Group 1’s first match was against G.S. Cluain Dolcain. It was a close match but St. Joseph’s kept going and finished strong. Group 2’s first match was against Sruleen. It was a very good match but Joeys came out on top.
Group 1’s second match against G.S. na Camoige. It was a great match but St. Joseph’s came out on top once again. Group 2’s second match was against Neilstown. It was so close that it ended in a draw.
Group 1 played their final match against Clonburris. It was by far their toughest game. With two minutes to go Joeys were two points down. We had the ball in the middle of the field doing some good passing then the break was on. St. Joseph’s were running at the Clonburris defence and boom! The ball was in the back of the net. St. Joseph’s had won. Unfortunately group 2 were not as successful as they lost their last game.
Thanks to Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. Doherty for bringing us to the Community centre to play.

Sports Day

It’s that time of year again. We love sports day in Joey’s. Every year group has a day devoted to sports; part of the day is competitive and part is just fun. All the boys get to participate in the obstacle race, high jump, penalty shootout, sack race, jockey back race and many more activities. The emphasis is always on participation and fun.

Confirmation

After all the preparation, Confirmation final arrived. And what a day it was too. Congratulations to all the boys and their families. Well done to all the staff who worked so hard to make this such a special occasion. We also need to commend the boys in the band and choir for their hard work and their great discipline in the church! I’m not sure I could sit so still for so long. Well done boys!

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.
