Soccer League

The inaugural Senior Infants/First Class soccer league commenced today in Scoil Mhuire. There was an extremely high standard on display in two keenly contested opening games. It was evident for all that the future of Irish football is in safe hands with the talent on show today.
The league continues tomorrow and we look forward to two more compelling encounters at lunchtime.


Ms Daly’s students are having great fun this week learning all about capacity.


Ms Waters’ students were caught in the act of having sneaky treat last Thursday….lucky crew!!

Pizza Time!

The boys and girls of Junior Infants have been very busy in aistear learning about the supermarket and pizza. So they wrote the shopping lists, visited the supermarket and finally made the pizzas and as you can see from the empty plates they thoroughly enjoyed them.
Well done everyone!

Shopping Time in JI

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!

Green Flag number 7!!!

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.

Junior Entrepreneur Programme 2019

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!!

Signs of Summer!

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.

Flat Stanley on Tour!

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?!!
