Transition Year Barista Training: On Monday morning the halls of St Josephs College were filled with the beautiful aroma of Coffee as a number of Transition Years took part in the Barista workshop with the Dublin Barista School. A great experience for all and something that will look great on their CV.

5th Year Ecology Trip: A group of 112 5th year students travelled to Castletown House in Celbridge this week on an Ecology trip as part of their Biology Class. The girls were studying the flora and fauna of a woodland ecosystem and showed excellent skills when using qualitative and quantitative investigating techniques.


Minor Camogie Match: On Tuesday our Minor Camogie team played Mount Sackville in another group game in their League Campaign. The Girls put up a great performance against a good Mount Sackville Team and won well in the end. Well done to all involved, they now progress to the next stage of the competition.


Ty Trip to Dublin Zoo: Our transition Year group went on a full year group tour to Dublin Zoo on Thursday. The much-anticipated tour did not disappoint with students enjoying the freedom to guide themselves with great excitement from one enclosure to the next to see what kind of creature awaited them.

6th Year Write Ups: Students who study Politics and Society and History completed their write ups this week on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. These write ups are project work the students complete as part of their coursework in the Leaving Certificate. In the case of History and Politics the project was then uploaded onto the Department of Education’s portal for grading. Well done to everyone.

Minor Soccer: Our Minor soccer team took to the field again this week in their Leinster Quarter Final where they faced Mercy Coolock. The girls played excellently and eventually ran out winners on a score line of 6 goals to 1. It was a great team performance but Siena Hannon was the player of the match after a dominant Midfield performance. The girls are now through to the Leinster Semi Final.

5th and 6th Year Art Trip: On Thursday 5th and 6th Year Art students will be going on an Art Trip as part of their Visual Studies and Art History courses. All students visited the Hugh Lane Gallery where they were brought on a guided tour, focussing on the work of the Impressionist painters. 5th Year Art students then visited the National Gallery of Ireland to view the work of 19th Century painters, while 6th Year Art students visited the National Museum to view Bronze Age artefacts.


PAL Trial Finale: Every year we participate in the Public Access to Law National Trial Competition designed for TY students. Unfortunately because of Covid restrictions the Court Service have cancelled this year's competition. Because the students had put in so much preparation work in advance of the Trial competition we thought it was a good idea to allow our students to compete against one another. On Friday we held TWO separate trials, involving 4 barristers, 4 witnesses, court staff, reporters, artists, photographers. Prizes will be awarded to the winners in all of the above categories.


1st Year Stay Awake : Our Cinnire Team were very busy all week organising the First Year Stay Awake. This was a great evening of fun and games with the theme being TV and movies. The First Year students had a great night , well done to the Cinnire Team for organising this event.
