Mr. Hynes


A big welcome to our webpage.   The boys and girls are 
well settled in as they begin their final year in St. Joseph’s.  A
quick four years……
The children have a very special year coming up where they will make
their First Confession & First Holy Communion.  
We will keep you posted over the next few months.  

Halloween 2023.

The children were very busy looking for pumpkin seeds.


Take a look at some amazing scary Halloween costumes.


Trip of Charleville. 

Our annual trip to Charleville castle where we collected leaves of all shapes & sizes. 

We walked all the way up to the castle gates and they were busy filming a movie.

Heading to Aura.

Great excitement in Mr. Hynes’s class this morning with the boys and girls heading to the Aura swimming pool. They just couldn’t wait to put on their swimming hats. 


First Holy Communion.

In May 2024, the children will make their First Holy Communion.  Over the next couple of months we will visit the church in preparation.  One morning we went down to the church for the 10am mass. 


Vex Robotics 

In early 2024, we are taking part in the VEX Robotics competition.  We are in the process of building this year’s platform.  Another exciting time ahead.


Sources of Light. 

The children in Science were learning about various sources of light.  We used torches to identify items that are transparent, translucent and opaque.  (allows light to shine through, allows some light through, allows no light through).  We also made a small rainbow using a torch and water.

Maths Activities

The boys and girls enjoying some of their maths activities in the classroom.


Lá Glas

The end to a very exciting week of Seachtain na Gaeilge.


Our annual trip to Charleville to see the lovely bluebells in full bloom.  This gave us some inspiration to do some planting of herbs and flowers in our garden.

Fun Day & Tour

This year we attended the Let’s Go school tour in Athlone.  We had a fantastic day. Plenty of smiles in the photos.
