St. Joseph’s College

Big Brother, Big Sister
The Foróige programme to help our first years has begun. First Year students are paired with Transition Year students who can provide advice and support. We have weekly meetings where students discuss school life and take part in fun games.

1st Year Blitz
Last Thursday, our 1st year boys took part in a hurling blitz in Dr. Morris Park in Thurles. They played against Clonmel High school, Scoil Mhuire Thurles and Thurles C.B.S. The boys showed great heart and won all their matches. They look forward to more success with their school.

Chocolate Factory
Our enthusiastic Transition Year group traveled to Caffrey’s Chocolate Warehouse in Walkinstown, Dublin. The students got a tour of the Chocolate Warehouse where they were given samples of the magnificent chocolate. The students decorated their own bars of chocolate. The business was established in 1948 by Thomas Caffrey, “The Irish Willy Wonka”. It was a very enjoyable day for all involved.

Trip to France

Students and teachers are just back from a trip to Paris. They stayed in France for three nights where they visited some of the main attractions in Paris such as the Eiffel Tower. They also visited Disney Land where everyone had a great day. The trip was enjoyed by all.

Soccer Tournament
Sixth years are currently having a soccer tournament in the school. Games take place each day at lunch time. The tournament started last week and Niklas Nielsen’s team is currently on top. Best of luck to all involved.




Due to popular demand I’ve added another day to my Line Dancing class. I’m starting a brand new class every Thursday night in the Marian Hall from 8 til 9.30pm starting Thursday October 30th. The cost is €5.00 pay as you go. I am also continuing my Saturday Class at 10am so if you are unable to attend one class you now have the option to attend the other or you can attend both the choice is yours. If you fancy having a bit of fun and learning something new come along and take part. We dance to every type of music and it is a great way to exercise.
