St. Josephs get Fifth Green Flag

The Green Schools Committee are delighted to report that they received their fifth green flag for biodiversity. Representatives from the committee travelled to the awards ceremony in Drogheda. It was a very special occasion. 

We were then delighted to have Dale Treadwell of RTE Jr. fame raise our Green flag while the school cheered on.

It's been a busy time for The Green Schools Committee. We held our last walking bus of the school year and were delighted to report that there was a great turn out of over 70 pupils walking together on a beautiful June morning.

We also had a fabulous visit from Dale Treadwell who talked to our pupils about the importance of nature and looking after our bugs,bats and minibeasts.Without these biodiversity would be at risk.

One of the highlights of the school year is the recycled fashion show.This year was no exception. Sixth class excelled and the standard of entries made it very difficult for our judging panel to decide on a winner. A chorus of chants and cheers assisted their decision and a very deserving winner was decided. The winning entry was "The Golden Tribe" modelled by Nasya and created by Linda, Naoise and Leah.
