Galway Lions Club informed us that their good friend Santa Claus was popping by to surprise us on the 15th December. What a great surprise! And he brought us all a lovely gift! Thanks Santa & big thanks to Galway Lions Club for reminding Santa as he is so busy at this time of year!!! Check out class web-pages for photographs.
A very exciting week ahead in St. Joseph's with live events planned for our pupils in the hall. With huge thanks to Galway City Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports & Media, we welcomed back Stephen from Juggle.ie to kick start the events! Great excitement & enjoyment was had by all!
Six of our staff took part in St. Joseph's very first Erasmus trip this October. We travelled to Croatia to visit another special school. and learned lots. We took part in art therapy, ceramics and music classes and observed other classes in progress. We also visited a mainstream school and learned about how the special and mainstream schools work together to support each other. We are looking forward to our next trip in the new year, hopefully Northern Ireland in February.
