St Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh Junior Volleyball



Our senior boys teams were narrowly defeated in the All Ireland Semi Final

in Mullingar on Wednesday last. They put up a great fight and did super

considering their recent introduction to volleyball.

Our cadette boys team were also knocked out at the All Ireland Quarter

final in Portlaoise on Friday. They went down to an older, stronger and

much more experienced team but will come back fighting next year.

The junior boys and girls teams will commence trials shortly for their

competitions which start in January.

Science and Coding


We are delighted to have gotten through to phase 2 of the Astro Pi

challenge. Our second years are busy thinking up of their next experiment

and will have to learn to code in python for this challenge. If we succeed

to the next stage our experiment will be run live on the International

Space Station!


Simon Humphries made a video for the competition Reel Life Science.

Unfortunately he didn’t win but he did put together a great video that can

be seen on youtube – ‘Flying Wee Myth’. I would recommend a look if you’re

interested in seeing how urine from a toilet bowl can end up on your

toothbrush after flushing!!
