New Schools 2

Joy Unbounded as BAM Builders move on site of new school for St Joseph’s Tullla this week.
The long awaited sight of the diggers and earth-moving machinery moving on site gave all of St. Joseph’s great cheer on their return to work this Monday, the 5th January 2015.  Rapid progress has been made in a short few days, which augurs well for the meeting of the deadline for completion of the new school, now set for the 30th March 2016.image
The Principal, Ms Margaret O’Brien and two students Bethan Godber and Shane O’Malley attended a press launch at the Department of Education, Marlborough Street yesterday. The Chairperson of the Board of Management, Sr Maureen Frawley also met with Minster for Education, Ms Jan O’Sullivan, TD and Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Mr Brendan Howlin,TD. The three other schools in Bundle 4 of the Public Private Partnership are St. Mary’sCollege, Dundalk, Comeragh College,Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary and Skibbereen, Co. Cork.
image3AIB Corporate Banking and KfWare are providing the loans to BAM and in 25 years’ time it will be handed back to the ownership of the Department of Education, who in the meantime will be funding this model of provision to the tune of €7 million per annum.
It is hoped that local employment will ensue from this project over the term of construction and the whole school community look forward very much to enjoying its new facilities.

24 Hour Fast

Email Print

DSC 0763

The Leaving Certs continued a very important tradition last Thursday night 11th December by fasting for 24 hours and sleeping in school overnight for Sr Angela Hartigan. Sr Angela is a former principal who now works in the slums in Mukuru in Kenya. We here in St Joseph’s support her work by filling sponsorship cards and fundraising for her each Christmas.
In an email that Sr Angela sent to us on the night of our fast she told us that
“it has been a very difficult year for us in Kenya, mainly due to the ongoing insecurity from Al Kaeda in our neighbouring country, Somalia. Apart from that there are severe restrictions on travel into and out of Kenya due to the Ebola crisis in West African countries. Our Students grow in numbers and we now have an enrolment of over 300 students. Our previous supporter, an elderly Indian businessman, used to supply us with some food for lunches for the students. For most of our students this was their only meal each day. Now this man is retiring from business and will not be able to supply us with the maize and beans which we serve for lunch each day. Your support will be most appreciated to feed the hungry for 2015 and beyond. I thank Tulla for continuing to stand by us and helping us out of this crisis.
If you feel extra pangs during your fast know that you will be in the company of most of our students who remain hungry during holiday time waiting and hoping for school to reopen and fill their stomachs as well as their minds.
My very sincere thanks to all the organizers, participants and supporters of the now famous Tulla Fast for Mukuru, Kenya
Love and blessings,
Angela Hartigan

Watch out for us on Thursday and Friday next when we have our flag day on the streets of Tulla!!!!
A big well done to all the Leaving Certs and their teachers who participated in the Fast.
