Congratulations to Jack who has been nominated to play at an exhibition game in Croke Park on July 15th at half time of the All Ireland Semi Final!
This nomination has come as a result of the success of our Boys Mini 7s team reaching the County final of the Cumann na mBunscol Mini 7 competition earlier this year.
Enjoy every minute of this fantastic opportunity Jack!
Children from second class enjoyed their treats. Well deserved after their First Holy Communion last weekend.

Frank Salmon visited 6th class to share his journey to success as CEO of CMS Distribution. Frank is very involved in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme and was very impressed with the children's products Seeded Notepaper and Football Frenzy Board Game which are currently on sale in St Joseph's. Johnny and Elaine were the winners of a Fitbit Watch sponsored by Frank.

Drop off can start from 8.20am and the walking bus leaves at 8.30am.

Both of our sixth classes are engaged in the Junior Entrepeneur Programme. This gives students the opportunity to experience practical, real-life business learning as part of their formative education.
Mr. Kenny's class have designed a board game with a football theme and Mr. Walsh's class are making seeded paper. Well done all on your wonderful & inventive ideas.
See what's happening at school.
