Easter Camp

St. Joseph’s Easter Camp was  a jam packed four days of sports, art, games and fun for all children who attended!

Well done to the winners of the Easter Egg hunt on the final day, who showed great team work and really used their heads to follow the clues!

Congratulations also to all spot prize winners during the week, and in particular to Conor & Ryan, who were chosen for star prizes for having great attitudes towards all activities and big smiles on their faces all week!

Artistic April!

Our theme for April was the art Gallery so we had a very creative month. We created art with sand, bricks, cutting and sticking and even playdough. Here are some pictures of us playing at some of these stations:

 

Here is some of the lovely art that we created that was inspired by some very famous artists:

Easter Egg Raffle

Well done to all of the boys and girls in St. Joseph’s who together raised €963 for the Irish Pilgrimage Trust with their Easter egg raffle. We wish the trust and of the young people luck on their annual trip to Lourdes.

Marvelous March

We had a very fun and busy month in March. Our theme was the garden centre and we learned lots about plants, flowers and mini-beasts.

Here are some pictures of us having fun in the garden centre role play area:

One person is in charge of watering our seedlings everyday. As you can see we are doing a great job:

You may have noticed some green clothes in our photos this was to celebrate saint Patrick’s day. Here is our whole class with the pots of gold we made.

 

We also went on a nature walk looking for the signs of Spring. Take a look:

  

 

 

 

 

Lastly you might have noticed our window in school, where we have our art displayed. We painted flower sun-catchers and drew patterns on our butterflies with oil pastels :
