Welcome to St Joseph's Secondary School Tulla

Welcome Back to all of our Students

Email Print

Welcome back to St. Joseph’s for the school year 2015-2016. I would like to extend a special céad míle fáilte to our new 1st Years, who are settling in nicely with the assistance of our Mentors from the Leaving Cert Year. It is very exciting to be the school cohort who will be moving in to the new school at the end of March 2016. We have watched with excitement as each new phase of the building is put in place. We are delighted to see our grounds being laid out and especially the new playing pitch.

Congratulations to our 2015 Leaving Certs who achieved such excellent results this year. We wish them well in their further studies and careers. This year we have had a change in the Tomar Scholarships. It was decided to change from two at €5,000 to four at €2,500 as Mr Tom Cavanagh preferred to spread the money from the Trust out to be distributed more widely. This year’s winners are Craig Mc Namara, Sarah Leyden, Michael Vaughan and Aileen Moloney. I have no doubt but that other college entrance scholarships will be won this year by our top scoring students.
Hearty congratulations to our Junior Cert students who received their Examinations results this week. Particularly good results were earned in Gaeilge, Maths, Science and RE.
We hope to see our top performers at the Awards Night on Thursday, the 1st October, where we can hear of our students’ achievements on the playing field and various extra-curricular activities throughout last year. We look forward to celebrating a great year’s success.

From the attached aerial site photographs you will see how much the building has progressed since the beginning of January with BAM fm builders. The roof beams are in place and now the walls of the gym hall are being erected. It is hoped that the whole building will be enveloped in by September, when the internal fit-out will occur. We have great thing to look forward to in St.
Joseph's in 2016.

CEIST Student Leadership Conference

Email Print

On Tuesday 24th March, three students from the student council, Sarah, Bethan and Tomas, with their teacher Ms. Hogan attended the first CEIST Student Leadership Conference in St. Patrick's
College, Dublin. We were first welcomed with a speech from Dr. Marie Griffin and the lighting of the CEIST candle. While Ms. Hogan attended a session on mindfulness, the students attended two different workshops about leadership. In the first workshop the students discovered the different types of leaders we have nationally and internationally. In the second workshop, they discussed how to be a good and effective leader and the attributes associated with a good leader. After meeting up with Ms. Hogan, we attended a speech by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny. In the afternoon, we listened to presentations from other students explaining the leadership roles they undertake in their own schools.

Munster Senior B Colleges Champions 2015
The senior hurling’s squad bowed out of the All-Ireland Colleges Series last Saturday in Navan with a gut-wrenching one point defeat to Cross and Passion Ballycastle. The panel represented our school with fantastic team spirit and despite defeat on Saturday have made great strides to regain the senior crown for the first time in 34 years.
