Tennis coaching

Every Thursday for the last term of school,the senior classes in St Joseph’s have tennis lessons. Tennis coaching takes place on our school astro pitch, in the Phoenix centre and sometimes Cloughvalley Park when the weather is good. Tennis is great fun and some of the students like it so much that they also go to tennis coaching after school. We learn how to rally with our partners, score points and we also play a game called ‘king of the court’. our coach Gus supplies the tennis balls and rackets and will organise matches for us when the training is complete

On the 24th of April 2016 the boys of St Joseph’s BNS celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation in St Joseph’s Church in Carrickmacross. Bishop Liam McDaid was there to say mass and confirm the children, along with the priests of our parish. There were over a hundred children to be confirmed and everyone had a great day. The church was packed with friends and family there to share in our special day and it was a day that the boys in our school will never forget.
