Raising the Green Flag

Today is a day that will be remembered for a long time here in Scoil Mhuire. Our very own past pupil and now music super star Ronan Bell, of Chasing Abbey fame, rose our 7th Green Flag- much to the delight of students, staff and other esteemed guests. The weather was perfect as the talented students entertained guests with songs, music and even a rap from our Green Team!! Cúl Heroes’ mascots were also on hand for the big day! Well done everyone and thank you Ronan for dropping by!!

Skipping Class…

Well not quite skipping class- more like A Skipping Class!! Ms Daly’s class had great fun learning to skip last week & making Father’s Day presents in Art. Gorgeous work ladies!!

The Green Clean!

The Green Team organised a clean up of the school grounds when we had some minutes of sunshine. The girls did a super job making sure that our school looks fabulous for the official raising of our 7th Green Flag. Thank you ladies!!

Artist Seán Guinan

It’s not everyday that you are lucky enough to have an artist join you for a lesson, but today painter Seán Guinan stepped into the senior classes and inspired everyone- teachers included. Seán showed some of his work to the students then encouraged them to take up their pencils and create a masterpiece of their own. This all resulted in some incredible pieces that will hang proudly on any wall. Thank you so much Sean. Come back soon!! For more of his work check out http://www.seanguinan.com

Making Headlines!!

It has been a busy few weeks here at Scoil Mhuire. Check out our talented girls in this week’s Tullamore Tribune!!

Train Time!

We are very lucky to have so many resources right on our doorstep here at Scoil Mhuire. Last week our junior infant students took their Aistear lesson on shopping to the store nearby. This week as part of their learning about travel and transport they set off to visit the train station directly across the road. What better way to learn than to immerse yourself in it!

Rugby Goodies!

It is with thanks to you all that we received 4 boxes filled with all sorts of rugby goodies from Aldi. As acknowledgement for the posters that we filled- Aldi sent us a plethora of rugby balls, sports bottles and bags. Thank you once again for your support.

Bibs!!!

Katie’s father generously donated a set of bibs to our school- for which we are most grateful!!! Thank you so much- let the games begin!!

Minibeast Hunt!

Ms Conroy’s boys and girls went exploring our beautiful grounds for some minibeasts. The adventure proved worthwhile as lots of little creatures were discovered!!
