On the 4th October 2015 the Germans, Italians and Portuguese students and teachers got their first taste of St Josephs Secondary School. They were welcomed to the school by Mr Madden, Mr Savage, Mr Kelly, Mr McDonagh and Ms Clinton. After Mr Madden told the students about the history of the school, they were given a guided tour around the school. At 1 o’clock everyone got lunch which was a variety of foods like sausage rolls, wedges and ham and cheese sandwiches. When everyone finished their lunch we set off for Drogheda. Here we gathered around the Drogheda Tourist Office. We were split into 3 groups and we were given a talk and a tour of Drogheda’s most famous sites. We visited Laurence’s Gate and St Peter’s Church. We then set off for Millmount. In Millmount we went up to the tower its self where we could see the whole of Drogheda town. Our tour guide then brought us to the museum in Millmount which gave us a great insight of what it was like back when Millmount was built. After that we all hopped on the bus back to our school and the students all went home.
