Scoil Iósaf is very privileged to partner up with a range of talented people throughout the school year who are dedicated to keeping children fit and healthy. The children engage in team sports, individual sports and learn new physical and lifelong skills.
These partnerships vary across the curriculum from science, geography, and history, Music, and dance, team sports, GAA, basketball, and swimming.
We feel these partnerships greatly benefit the school as a whole and the children have great fun doing it!
