Scoil Mhuire hit the headlines today in scary fashion. The Tullamore Tribune included some wonderful photos of our adventures on the Witch Walk last Friday. In case any of you are lucky enough to be away on holidays and missing some local news this week- we figured we should keep you up to date and post the spread in today’s paper for you!
As day one of the holidays draws to a close we are using this time to update the blog with more wonderful photos from the past few weeks in Scoil Mhuire. Before the holidays Third Class was busy creating beautiful art to fill the halls and they also took part in Maths Week. Stay tuned for more updates and please remain safe and well during this Midterm Break.
Every year this event is met with excitement – not only from the children in Scoil Mhuire, but for the town of Tullamore. This year proved to be even better than previous years, between the spectacular costumes and the generous donations it is a day that we will never forget. Here is just a sample of some of the amazing costumes.
Feast your eyes on the delicious goodies that were cooked up in Scoil Mhuire today. No cauldron or witches required – just lots of chocolate, sprinkles and happy helpers. Nobody is quite sure how they lasted before they were devoured….but the results were unanimous – DELICIOUS!!

Last week the students took part in Maths Week in all sorts of fun ways. Maths trails and a table quiz proved to be very popular with everyone. Here are just a few photos from the busy crew here at Scoil Muire. Also – we are getting in the mood for Halloween and the halls are getting spookier every day!
It was a very exciting day here at Scoil Mhuire as Sgt Quinn and Gunner Scally presented a copy of the 1916 Proclamation and our National Flag to Scoil Mhuire. The Defence Forces were warmly welcomed by Principal Ms. Doheny on arrival. The children waved their flags and sang Amhráin na bhFiann in full voice. Some students also gave a lovely rendition of our national anthem on tin whistle. It is a day we will never forget.
