Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2023

A huge thank you to everyone who donated a shoebox to the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2023. This year, the pupils and staff of St. Joseph’s PS donated 241 shoeboxes! In 2022, we donated 193 shoeboxes. This is an incredible amount! Each shoebox donated will make a less fortunate child very happy this Christmas! The shoeboxes were collected on Tuesday and thank you to all the pupils and staff who helped load up the Team Hope van, especially Ms. O’Dwyer’s class and Ms. Doyle’s class. It was like the elves loading up Santa’s sleigh with goodies! Once again, thank you very much for all the shoeboxes! 🙂

World Book Day Celebrations 2023

World Book Day was a huge success here in St.Joseph’s Primary School. To celebrate World Book Day each child was given a World Book Day token to encourage reading . Every child could dress up as a favourite character from their favourite book and there was some fantastic costumes parading the school for the day . As a whole school we celebrated this day through a special announcement of DEAR time over the intercom . Classes were busy designing their own book covers as well as drawing their favourite characters . It was a positive experience for all and great effort was invested by parents, teachers and students . We all thoroughly enjoyed the day . Happy Reading !

The Stars Are Brightly Shining!

Well done to all the children in our school who each designed a star for our annual display in Gorey Shopping Centre. It looks wonderful! Be sure to visit and see if you can spot yours.
