Awards Ceremony 2018

The boys and girls of St. Joseph’s had a wonderful time at this year’s awards ceremony. Fr. Boggan first celebrated our end of year mass for the children, their parents and all of the staff. The awards earned on sports day, from chess tournaments, from the Green Schools art competition, from athletics competitions and from the school’s Gaelic Leagues were presented after mass. The final award presented on the day went to Paddy Higgins from 6th class who received the Ger Hogan award. Well done to Paddy, and best of luck to him and all of the 6th class pupils as they leave us for secondary school. Well done to all the boys and girls for their hard work throughout the past school year. See you in September!!!</h5?

Sports Day in Gorey Show Grounds

We had a wonderful day in Gorey Show Grounds for our 2018 Sports Day. The sky was blue and spirits were high, with not a cloud to be seen. Well done to all of the boys and girls for their great efforts on the day!!

Green School Energy Week

As part of our Green School’s campaign, we had a Green School Energy Week. This took place from Monday April 30th to Friday May 4th, ending in Green Day when pupils were asked to wear green to school.

We had a Green Schools slogan competition with one senior winner and one junior winner. Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in both categories will get a prize sponsored by the Parents’ Council. Winners announced shortly.

Classes also learned about renewable and non-renewable energy and ways of saving energy. Some classes played a game available from Wexford County Council and provided by SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland) to further consolidate this.

As part of our policy, two energy wardens from each class fill out an Energy Warden Checklist daily.

Pupils were also made aware of an energy talk in Gorey Library on May 15th. This talk was given by Three Counties Energy Agency. A link to their website can be found here.

The pupils learned an energy kit can be borrowed from Gorey Library. This kit helps with saving energy in the home. It is sponsored by SEAI.

Well done to everyone for their hard work.
