At St. Joseph’s/Scoil Iósaef, we recognise that the move from primary to post–primary school can be daunting. We proactively work in collaboration with parents and our new Year 8 students to make the process as smooth as possible.
The Cairde Brogán Foundation was established in November 2017 in memory of a former member of staff, Sr Mary Brogán. The core aim of the Foundation is to build a powerful network of individuals and organisations that will offer practical support and guidance to current and past students of St Joseph’s as they progress along their career journeys. The creation of the Foundation was borne out of an acknowledgment that there is a rapidly changing employment landscape, which means our students will enter a future work force and compete for jobs that do not yet exist.
The Foundation recognises that it is imperative that as a school, we seek to identify the skills base needed for our students to succeed in the workforce of the future and ensure they are offered real life opportunities to make them ‘work force ready’.
St Joseph’s believes in the power of community and the Cairde Brogán Foundation seeks to promote high level collaboration with employers, innovation hubs, and other education providers. It is hoped this collaboration will create tangible, career related opportunities to empower our students to be ready to take up their place in a rapidly changing world.
