The girls of the Scoil Mhuire choir are in high demand this week. On Tuesday they gave an impromptu session to the parents who popped in for some coffee and cakes. Today the girls pottered down to the Bridge Centre where they entertained the crowds with their beautiful singing. Like all of our students they did us so proud – flying the flag high for Scoil Mhuire! Well done girls.
The students are giving amazing performances all this week. Be prepared for lots of posts regarding same in the coming days. Here is a little something special from our boys and girls in 1st class. Enjoy!
The students of 5th and 6th met with author Ray Flannery (originally from Banagher!), Garda Detective by day, epic children’s author by evening!! So inspired by his talk- the girls could not wait to return to class and write their own stories. His hilarious book Moany McMoan tells the story of a typical Irish boy who gets up to plenty of mischief!! Perfect stocking filler that is available on http://www.bookhub.com. Thank you so much for your time- the students were fascinated.
Great photo in today’s Tullamore Tribune!
Today Ronnie Colton and Michael Casey, representatives from Tullamore Lions Club, visited the school and were presented with crates of food that Scoil Mhuire students collected over the weeks of advent. Thank you to all the girls and boys for their generosity.
Today the confirmation students were treated to a wonderful talk on the Camino de Santiago by our former principal Máire McRedmond. Ms. McRedmond brought in lots of treasures from her four arduous,yet rewarding treks along the Camino Way. These included her special Camino passport and certificate of completion of the 500 mile walk. Did you know that St. James’ Gate in Dublin is in fact a stop along the Camino??!! Absolutely fascinating. We cannot thank Ms. McRedmond enough for sharing her stories, photos and first hand knowledge with us- the students greatly appreciated it.
The students and staff of Scoil Mhuire donned their finest festive garments for an excellent cause today. €500 was raised for St. Vincent de Paul and this very generous donation will go a long way in making sure that those in need receive the Christmas that they deserve. Thank you to everyone for your wonderful contribution.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Here is the first of many great Scoil Mhuire performances that you will see over this festive season!! Enjoy!
What an incredible bunch of talented girls. These ladies have every reason to smile as they are returning home from the Diversity Games in Athlone Institute of Technology with a medal haul to be proud of. Jingling all the way home for that matter! Huge thanks to Ms. McCormack for keeping them on the right track!!
