Looking great girls!
Members of Kiltullagh Community Choir called in the week before our holidays to formally present us with the proceeds from the concert held last December in St Nicholas Church. The event was very successful and has provided us with funds to extend the IT resources in the school. Already we have purchased a TV for the foyer which we are using to showcase the work and learning experiences of the pupils. We have set up Senior 2 with an Interactive whiteboard and a projector. The remaining money will be used to purchase a touch monitor for use in the junior classes.
As any of you who attended the concert in December will know the Kiltullagh Community Choir is very talented and perform a great show.
If anyone is interested in contacting them to perform at an event call Brendan at 353(87)8139418
Pictured are some of the pupils with Breda and Mary admiring the 50th anniversary cake.
We had a small party in the school on Monday last to mark the date the school opened officially (April 6, 1964)
There is a nice article about the school in the Connacht Tribune this week .
Thanks to Aran's auntie Natasha for making the cake
St Joseph's is officially 50 years old this week. On the April 6, 1964, having received recognition from the Department of Education, the school opened on a full time basis. Pictured below is the prefabricated building in Snipe Avenue which housed the school for close to thirty years. While facilities have improved it is worth noting that the vision and ethos espoused by the founder members lives on today.
We hope parents and friends will be able to join us on May 27 to honour the people who started the school and to remember all those who have been associated with it- pupils, parents, staff, management and friends over the past 50 years.
St Joseph’s is a special school under the patronage of the voluntary organisation Ability West. Education in all aspects of the primary school curriculum is provided for pupils between the ages 4- 18 who have moderate general learning disabilities. Programmes are designed to meet individual needs so as to enable pupils to reach their full potential.
