Attending St Josephs

At St. Joseph’s we have great students and, what is more, they think St. Joseph’s is great too!  Here are some of the things our pupils in 2nd class wrote about what it’s like at our school.

Attending St. Joseph’s N.S

St Joseph’s is great because we have Easter Hunts and we get to see Santa. We have a great caretaker Brendan and a fantastic secretary Helen. Our principal Ms Dowling is really nice because she comes and to see us in our class sometimes. We do Gymnastics, GAA, swimming and skipping. All the 2nd classes are making their First Holy Communion this year. Three cheers for St. Joseph’s, Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray.

Going to St. Joseph’s is wonderful because our teacher brings us to tennis, skipping, GAA and gymnastics. We have lots of great friends to play with. We have visits from Santa, Raymond and Trina, the music teachers. In the summer months we have fun day before the summer holidays. My favourite part is when we have tennis. I am excited about my First Holy Communion. Going to Charleville is also my favourite. During the summer we sometimes wear shorts and t-shirts. We eat healthy lunches and we don’t bring sweets. We have no detention either. We have a fantastic caretaker and a great cleaner to keep our school clean and fixed, and we give presents to each other. We also have great teachers. I love St. Joseph’s.

Going to St. Joseph’s N.S. is fun because you go on many tours. When I went on those tours I felt really happy being with my friends, some of the tours we go on are Dublin Zoo, Imaginosity, a panto in The Helix, Dublin and the Garda Station. St. Joseph’s also educates hundreds of children per year, we also have appropriate equipment for children to develop the right muscles. At St. Joseph’s we try to be the best school in Tullamore by teaching everyone how to share and play together. So bring your child to St. Joseph’s N.S.

Going to St Joseph N.S. Tullamore  is fun great and nice because you are never alone.  We have friendship games and a raffle every Friday. We go on school tours like Annaharvey and Dublin Zoo. We have an Easter egg hunt. The Halloween parade is a parade where we walk around Arden View. We have a pyjama party. Our playground has bars, a cow, snail and stepping stones.  We get to meet Santa. This year 2nd class got to go to The Helix in Dublin. We got to see The Sleeping Beauty. It  was really good. I enjoyed the bus up to Dublin. I liked  the songs and the  dancing. The teachers are really nice here.

St. Joseph’s is the best because we get to play soccer on lunch breaks. Our school is the best because we get to play in the field. In our school we get to play on the monkey bars and the cow and the caterpillar and the crocodile and the stepping stones and the snail and the horse and the boards. No other school is better than St Joseph’s because we get to do art and pottery and we go swimming and dance class and G.A.A class and we get to practice how to use a computer.
