OPPORTUNITY AND ENRICHMENT
In St. Joseph’s we believe in offering pupils opportunities to extend their learning far beyond the classroom.
To assist in this aspect of our pupils’ development:
• Pupils are actively encouraged to take part in a range of extra curricular sporting activities. Coaching is
provided by qualified coaches who specialise in working with children. Strong partnerships have also been
developed with local sporting clubs.
• The programme is diverse in nature to benefit as many pupils as possible.
• This programme is run alongside school teams who complete in inter school competitions.
A rich sporting culture exists in St Joseph’s College with our school teams competing and achieving at the highest
level.

There are a number of trips and residentials organised each year by our teachers. We have links through the Irish
Children’s Programme with Rochester in the USA and our children and teachers travel each July to renew friendships.
Pupils take part in Science, History, Geography and Drama field trips at home and abroad, as well as visits to museums,
theatres and art galleries. We run leagues, competitions, fundraising events, citizenship programmes, cross-border/cross-
community projects, work experience, business/enterprise project, visits to industry, and environmental projects through
the school. We welcome representatives from industry and commerce to our Annual Celebration of Achievement.
