Welcome to Scoil Iosaef Naofa’s School Wesbite

📰 News/updates 📰


🧑‍🚒 Fire Brigade: All classes were delighted to have Cobh Fire and Rescue Service visit our school on Tuesday. The junior classes loved exploring the fire engine and shooting the water hose. While the senior classes enjoyed learning about fire safety and the daily work of a fire team. A big thanks to David, Paul & Adam for giving us a very exciting day! And thanks to the Parents Association for organising the visit.

🧪Science Week: There was plenty of fun and creative science activities and experiments in Scoil Iosaef Noafa this week during Science Week. Many boys had the opportunity to make predictions and see their results

🎤Choir: The boys are loving choir practice!  We are looking forward to some performances throughout the school year. A reminder that choir is on every Wednesday from 2.40pm until 3.10pm







Everyday Irish: We are aware that many pupils and parents find Irish hard. From next Monday, we will be teaching the boys simple phrases every week that they can use in every day situations at home and in school. This use of ‘Cúpla Focal’ will build their confidence and over time they will have a store of Irish that they can draw on right through to secondary school and beyond. This fortnights phrases are:


  • Más é do thoil é – please
  • Go raibh maith agat – thanks


We would encourage you to try find ways to use these simple phrases at home.
