As part of Bike Week 2017, Marrey Bikes ran a colouring / design your own helmet competition for our third and fourth classes. All the children had great fun and all were extremely creative. Eamonn came to present the winners with their prizes today. He also showed us how to wear your helmet properly which is very important. It is also a legal requirement now to have reflectors, a light and a bell on your bike. Eamonn also kindly gave each child who entered the competition a little pack with these enclosed. Many thanks & well done to all!
Annual Cake/Jumble Sale
We had a wonderful morning at the Cake Sale organised by 6th class and their teachers. There was so much to do - hair styling, nail polishing, karaoke, fortune tellers, picture quiz and of course the lovely cakes and buns supplied by everyone! 6th class raised a lot of money which will be donated to a children's charity. Well done to all!

Cong Food Festival
Well, the big day came and we went to Cong to show the judges our cabbages! Eight of us brought them and they were all fantastic. We took great care over the past few weeks to mind the plants - watering and keeping the bugs off and even singing to them! Thanks to Cong Food Festival and Yvonne from Devour Bakery for having us !
International Children's Day
We are celebrating International Children's Day here at St. Joseph's. Second class with Muinteoir Niamh have made some lovely beads and bracelets. Other classes are organising their own events - some blowing bubbles, some creating artwork and some singing!
