- Fourteen classrooms with Broadband access
- Interactive whiteboards in all mainstream classrooms
- iPads: Each classroom is fitted with state of the art interactive whiteboards, projectors and many class computers. Recently, Scoil Iósaf received a selection of iPads which the students will use to further develop their love of learning
- Halla: One place that is always a height of activity is our school hall, famously known as the ‘halla’. Our hall is home to many activities from weekly PE classes, Basketball and camogie with Noel and Ciara, to assemblies, choir rehearsals, prayer services, concerts and cultural activities. Each class is allocated a specific time during the week to use the hall.
- Sensory room: All our children can avail of our sensory room in Scoil Iósaf to unwind and have a break while at the same time engage in the environment around them. Featuring a Calming LED Bubble Tube and soft padded plinth our pupils can sit close to the tube and watch as the bubbles steadily rise while their colour slowly changes.
The mirror ball produces spots of light that rotate around the room while the projector shows calming images that slowly rotate, creating a wonderful soothing environment. The brightly coloured balls inside our ball pool create a rainbow sea of fun and entice children of all ages into the therapy environment. The balls massage the entire body, provide buoyant support, deep-pressure sensation and encourage relaxation.
Wall and floor padding is also included to create a ‘safe’ area for students to sit or lie down and enjoy the calming music and lighting.

Music is an important part of the Curriculum in Scoil Iósaf . The development of musical literacy is closely linked with the song singing programme and is expanded through playing various musical instruments. The tin whistle is taught from 1st to 6th class.
Scoil Iósaf fosters in its pupils an awareness of the needs of others by supporting fundraising activities for such organisations as Third World organisations and local charities.
