Seachtain na Gaeilge sa Ranganna 2 agus 5

Tháinig rang 2 agus rang 5 le chéile chun leabhair Gaeilge a léamh agus taitneamh a bhaint astu.

Ms Rochford’s 2nd class and Mr O’Brien’s 5th class came together during Seachtain na Gaeilge to read and enjoy Irish storybooks together.

Bhí orthu an bhrí a fháil amach ag baint úsáide as pictiúir, focail atá ar eolas acu agus tuiscint choiteann. Rinne said obair iontach!

The pupils figured out the meaning with the help of pictures, words they know and common sense. They did a great job and had fun in the process!

Olympic Handball Finals

Well done to the girls and boys u11 and u13 teams who participated in the regional finals in Castletown playing against teams from Wicklow and Carlow. All our four teams have now qualified for the Leinster Finals to be held in March in Gormanstown in Co.Meath, where, they will play against other county representatives from across Leinster. They were presented with their medals at school assembly. Well done and best of luck in the Leinster Finals.

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 !
