We are proud to say that two of our senior 5 students won prizes for the Advertiser Christmas Art competition. They were presented with awards and gifts by Tom Kenny of the Kenny Gallery. The Mayor of Galway was in attendance. A great evening was had by everybody.
Happy new year everybody. We are delighted that the building works are practically finished. The two new classrooms were occupied just before Christmas. Pupils and staff are getting used to the new surroundings. The library, gross motor room and meeting room will be furnished and equipped over the next few weeks. The extension has an internal sensory garden. We are looking forward to watching the plants bloom in Spring and Summer. We plan to add to the features in the garden over time.
All here at St.Josephs School send you our best wishes for a very happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year for 2018. Looking forward to the new year, see you on January 8th.
