We were delighted to organise an event for European Maker Week: https://europeanmakerweek.eu/
Ms. Hughes organised workshops in STEM to promote problem solving and computational thinking. We made balloon cars, lollipop stick bridges, newspaper towers and connected the MAKEY MAKEY to our computer to play Super Mario!
Pam from Limerick IT ran a workshop using Micro:bits. We really enjoyed the day and learned lots without any books!
Congratulations to both girls and boys who played in the Cumann na mBunscoil South Mayo division matches in Bekan last Friday. Both teams reached the final which was a great achievement. Huge thanks to their trainer Pat and sports co-ordinator Ms. Grimes.
An Interschools Showjumping and Dressage event was held on Sunday 22nd April in Claremorris Equestrian Centre. The event was open to both Primary and Secondary School students. Three students represented St. Joseph's P.S - Emi (4th Class), Cadhla (4th Class) and Rebecca (3rd Class).
Emi competed with her pony Danny in Individual Novice (70/80 cms) Showjumping. Cadhla competed with her pony Milford Lad in Individual Open (80/90 cms) Showjumping and Individual Dressage. Rebecca competed with her pony Bilco in Individual and Team Dressage.
Cadhla won the Individual Open Showjumping after an exciting jump off against the clock. Rebecca won the Individual Primary Schools Dressage and Cadhla got second place in the Individual Primary Schools Dressage. A fun day was had by all participants. Wonderful achievements for St. Joseph's and we look forward to more schools equestrian events in the future.
