ST. JOSEPH’S NS WAS SHORTLISTED FOR SECOND NATIONAL ROAD SAFETY AWARD 2017
Our school was recently shortlisted for the National “Leading Lights in Road Safety Awards 2017” in the Primary Education Sector for actively promoting road safety.
We started our Health Homework program in September. It encourages children and their families to become more active and learn about healthy lifestyles. The programme included short burst, fun activities around psychical activity, wellbeing and nutrition. All children received a Super Trooper’s Activity Journal which included short activities to do each night as part of their homework. Children can complete these fun activities alone or get their family and friends involved.
