Junior infants set off today in search of some ingredients to make a Pizza! The students had some great help from Ms. Grennan and Niamh to keep everyone safe on their way. The boys and girls wrote their own shopping list and headed off with an empty shopping bag to Lidl. The children were so excited to return to school with all of their ingredients and they can’t wait to dive into some Pizza making tomorrow. Watch out Gordan Ramsey!
Areebah, Clodagh and Green School Co-ordinator Miss Mahon were in Athlone yesterday to pick up our 7th Green Flag. This flag was awarded for the Global Citizenship Energy theme. Well done to everyone in Scoil Mhuire on this momentous achievement.
What an amazing day had by all at JEP. The 5th and 6th class girls did Scoil Mhuire very proud. To be shortlisted out of 700 schools is a wonderful achievement. Difficult to describe the amazing atmosphere in the RDS. Lots of hoarse voices on the journey home!!
The boys and girls of Junior Infants went exploring for signs of summer today. They brought the iPads with them to take photographs of their findings. Pretty impressive stuff!!
The Parents’ Association presented our communion class and our confirmation class with their certificates this week. County Photos were on hand to take fabulous pictures of the girls.
The association very kindly acknowledged all the work that the teachers, Sr. Margaret and Sr. Genny do in preparing the students for their sacraments. Thank you very much to Glen and Clare for the beautiful flowers.
Ms Daly’s class had great fun last week showing Flat Stanley from Forest Valley Elementary School, Canada around Scoil Mhuire & Tullamore.
The touring Stanley idea all stemmed from Forest Valley’s Rabbit and Squirrel classes wanting to read a chapter book together during daily storytime.
The classes settled on reading the original Flat Stanley adventure together. Upon completing the novel, each student designed their own Flat Stanley paper doll and mailed them out into the world to other schools.
They have been collecting postcards & pictures from the far corners of Earth; discovering different places on their class globe. How lucky were Ms Daly’s girls to be invited to take part in this exciting adventure?!!
What a glorious morning for our Walk On Wednesday. Thank you to everyone who walked with us and for the Green Team for organising the event. Great to have a morning stroll with our neighbours from Scoil Bhríde as well!
The very best of luck to our 2nd Class girls who are making their First Holy Communion today. Thank you to their teacher Ms Martin for preparing the girls so well. We wish you all a wonderful day!
It has been a cross curricular few weeks in Mr. Walsh’s class. The students have been learning about minibeasts in reports, writing poetry and carrying out a minibeast hunt. They finished off their studies by working in pairs to draw a minibeasts landscape and create some 3D minibeasts to inhabit that landscape. Don’t they look fabulous??!!
The girls of Scoil Mhuire went green today as part of “Let’s Talk” awareness and information event organised by Offaly Minding Our Mental Health. You will have noticed the green ribbons all over the town. Well done ladies!
