Year 8 Induction

There are only 4 more sleeps until we welcome our new Year 8 pupils on Monday morning at 9am-12pm. A lunch will be provided for each pupil at 11.30am in the canteen. Year 8 parents/guardians are invited to come to the canteen at 11.45am when they are collecting their son, for a cup of coffee/tea and scones, and a informal chat with the Year 8 Form teachers and Year Head. Please share and tag any new Year 8 parents/guardians as they may not have liked our school Facebook page as yet.

Staff Mass

Our school chaplain Fr Tony Corr helped celebrate the staff mass in school last Friday in which prayers were offered for the staff, pupils, parents and wider school community at St Joseph’s during the year ahead. Fr Corr was in turn presented with a gift to honour his Silver Jubilee year of ordination and wished continued health, happiness and fulfilment in the future years of his vocation. Fr Corr is pictured below with Principal Mr Murray and Head of Religion Mr Fearon.
