Transition Years at speak out in Cork

The Transition year group of 2016 were accompanied by Miss Kelly to 'The Speak Out' in Cork in April '16. They had a very successful and enjoyable day.

This was presented by Killian Young and Shane Enright, Bank of Ireland and gaelic football stars. This was organised by Miss Kelly and Miss M Mulvihill. Congratulations  and míle buíochas to both speakers on an excellent talk. Pictured are some of the students who attended the talk with Killian and Shane.

The school had representatives  in two Acts by 'Annamay Wall and Mark Hennessy' and the 'School Trad Group' ( Sarah Jane, Maeve, Caoimhe, Ciana, Emma, Megan, Pádraig, Conor, Alan , Ryan, Patrick, Diarmuid). Both gave impeccable performances. We want to acknowledge the brilliant work that both groups put in to reach this standard.  Annamay and Mark were chosen as the judges Top Act on the night.We wish to congratulate them both on this great achievement. Thanks also to Mrs Lynch who worked so well with the Trad group in preparation for the night.



A very nice commemoration ceremony for 1916 took place in St.Joseph's Secondary School, Ballybunion on Tuesday March 15th. Organised by Miss C Mulvihill, Mrs Lynch and the history teachers in the school a beautiful display of posters were on display in the canteen , where the proclamation was read and the school trad group performed for staff and students. It was continued outside where the group performed and the tri-colour was raised to the backdrop of the National Anthem being sung by the school community. Our International staff and students joined us for our ceremony. A big 'go raibh mile maith agaibh' to the staff, students who organised the event and played their part in this occasion.


Members of the Transition  year class entered 'Junk Kouture 2016' sponsored by Bank of Ireland. They assembled many amazing outfits using much recycled material.
