6th Year Graduation: On Friday evening our 6th years gathered in the Lucan Spa Hotel for their traditional Graduation Dance. After their meal they held the traditional awards giving ceremony. They were joined by a number of their teachers on the night and we would like to thank them for attending on the night. They have now officially graduated and we look forward to welcoming them back in September for their Debs.

In House Exams: Our Summer exams begin this week for our 1st, 2nd and 5th year students and we wish them well for these exams. Our 3rd and 6th year students will be in school this week completing block classes before they commence their state exams on the 8th of June. Finally our Transition Year group will remain with us this week and are having an activity week with trips to the zoo and Dundrum planned prior to their Graduation on Thursday 1st of June. School will finish for all students on Friday the 2nd of June.

Celebrations in Rosie’s Garden: Rosie’s Garden had some very special visitors on Saturday, 20th May 2023. Following their marriage in St. Mary’s Church, we were delighted to have Ms. Neasa Ní Dhoibhilin & Mr. Colm Murphy visit our school garden with their wedding party! Rosie’s garden has a special memorial tree to Niamh Ní Dhoibhilin, who was a past-pupil in St. Joseph’s up to 2003. We congratulate Neasa, Colm & Emma on their special day and wish them all the best for the future.

Awards Day: On Thursday last, we once again enjoyed our awards day which is one of the highlights of the year in St Josephs. It was great to be able to welcome special guests back into our School for the awards day. Awards are both subject and extracurricular based and with over 100 awards presented it was a very busy day for all involved. The strong student body of over 900 students cheered and clapped for each award for the winners. Kiera Radford in 6th Year deservedly won the overall Student of the Year award , it was also great to see Robyn Higgins from transition year pick up the Nano Nagle Award in recognition of all the work she has done in regard to autism awareness in our school. Head Girl Alena Varghese and Deputy Head Girl Charli Gale gave inspiring and emotional speeches to the student body as they vacated their posts on the student council. The students gave Alena a standing ovation as she concluded her speech. As one Student Council term came to an end another one has begun with the new Student Council being assigned their roles for the year ahead. Ríona McKearney is the new Student Council Deputy Leader and Marli Bah is the new Student Council Leader and we wish them and the New Student Council all the best for the Year ahead. Finally we would like to congratulate Ms. McMahon, Ms. Ryan and Ms. Hanlon for organising and running this event which is a huge undertaking.


Transition Year Graduation: On Thursday last we will hold our Transition Year graduation in the school sports hall. The Transition Year students will be joined by their Parents/Guardians, Tutors and teachers for this special ceremony. This graduation ceremony will celebrate all the achievements of this fantastic group throughout the year. Well done to Ms. Dunne who ran an excellent Transition Year Programme.

State Examinations: On Wednesday the 7th of June our 3rd and 6th year Students will begin their state examinations. We would like to take this opportunity to wish them well in their exams.

Summer Time: We have reached the end of our school year, we would like to thank all of our Staff, Students and Senior Management Team for all their efforts throughout the year. Please monitor the school app throughout the summer for important communications from the school.
