The girls of 6th class were delighted to present the money raised from our last cake sale to Barnardos. A fantastic organisation that plays a significant role in the lives of so many children and families in Tullamore and throughout the country. A huge thank you to Ms Mahon and Ms Fahy for organising the cake sale.
Paraic Creedon from The Explorers Education Programme came to chat with the children of 1st class today. He brought some native fish found in the sea around Ireland for the students to take care of for the next 4 weeks. Pádraig supplied the students with a fish tank, 2 anemones, a blenny, goby, prawn, cushion star, juvenile mullet and a hermit crab. There are already a number of budding marine biologists in both classes judging from the excellent observations!
Christmas is a distant memory and we are all settled back into the routine of school life. But before we lament those holidays- here is a look back on all the fantastic activities that took place here in Scoil Mhuire since last September.
The Green Team got straight back to work putting up the bird feeders and organising the food appeal before Christmas.
We had Maths Week, Science Week, Football matches, Witch Walk, Hurling Skills, Lanello, Christmas Concerts, Daltaí performances, computer coding, trips to the library, lots of amazing art and even talent shows. If this is what we can fit into the first term – imagine what we can can do this term!
