Welcome to our website

The Management , Staff and Pupils welcome you to our school website. Our mission is to develop a safe, supportive, educational environment which meets the needs of our pupils and encourages positive social interaction and communication skills. St. Joseph’s was founded in 1857 under the care of the Irish Christian Brothers. In 1996 the first lay principal was appointed.

Classes in the Primary Section aim to follow the curriculum used in mainstream national schools. Post Primary students follow mainstream academic and vocational programs.

St. Joseph’s recognizes the right of each pupil to be educated through the means of communication considered to be most suited to his needs. We have the services of a full time home/school liaison person. We also have access to the services of a psychologist, audiologist, counselor and Speech and Language Therapist. Day pupils and boarders are catered for in St. Joseph’s. Residential pupils are accommodated in six modern houses on the campus and travel home at weekends and for school holiday periods.
