Our Junior Camogie team were in action this week also against Mount Sackville, well done to them on their great victory. Well done also to our Lucan Sarsfield’s and St Pats Camogie players who won their various championships over the midterm break.

ICA : We were delighted to have the Ladies from Lucan ICA join our TY students once again for their Crocheting Workshop! This is our 12th Year of ICA-TY Crocheting and all enjoyed learning the craft of crocheting, sharing stories & making new friends! The students have been set the task now of crocheting a baby blanket in 10 weeks! Thank you to all the ICA for coming in for a very enjoyable afternoon!

Senior Debating: Well done to our Senior debating team who got the result of their recent debate and they won. Mr. Smyth spoke glowingly of the group and how well they had performed on the night and thankfully the result went their way also. We wish them the best of luck in the next round which takes place next week.

CAO Parent Talk: A talk with the Guidance department will take place on the evening of Tuesday the 15th of November. This talk will take place online and a link will be sent out to parents on the day via the school app.

3rd Year Parent Teacher Meeting : Our 3rd Year Parent Teacher Meeting will take place on Thursday the 17thof November via zoom. Due to the lack of space in the school building due to ongoing construction. Parents will receive their appointments next week prior to the meeting.

Joey’s Tidy Towns Calendars: Joey’s Tidy Towns students are delighted to have our fundraising calendar on sale once again, in aid of St. Vincent de Paul. Our Green Schools & Tidy Towns students have been very busy capturing many images of local sights, scenes of nature and places of interest in Lucan & surrounding areas. The calendars will be on sale from 1st December from Centra in Lucan and in the school at €10.00 per calendar. Many thanks to our sponsors MyVet & Lucan District Credit Union. Orders can be placed by emailing stjosephslucan@gmail.com.

Joey’s Outdoor Classroom Arrives: We are delighted to finally see our Outdoor Classroom ready for use after all the planning & fundraising! In March of 2022, we held our Fundraising walk with the Parents’ Association to raise much-needed funds for our outdoor area of Rosie’s Garden & Joey’s Outdoor Area. We are looking forward to having our outdoor space used now to facilitate learning, group-work, student wellbeing activities & recreational time, all set in the fresh air and located next to Rosie’s Garden. A huge thank you to all our school community for supporting our fundraising initiatives and to Outdoor Spaces for working with us to install it! Hopefully the sun will continue to shine!

Transition Year Musical: Guys & Dolls has certainly arrived in St. Joseph’s College!
