Wishing you all a wonderful new year. Delighted to see everyone back after a lovely Christmas. Be sure to wrap up well as it’s bitterly cold out there. Exciting things to come this year – be sure to watch this space!
Christmas holidays are finally here and the children are all bursting with excitement!!! Before I flood this blog with photos from the Christmas performances and pictures of the stunning art adorning the walls (and doors) of the school let me first thank you. Thank you for your support this term – please be sure to follow and share the blog and Facebook page with everyone! It is a wonderful opportunity to stay connected and get a glimpse into your child’s school day in Scoil Mhuire. Merry Christmas!!!
It may not be a school day, but our girls turned out for yet another fantastic performance and did the school extremely proud. This time the location was the Tullamore Food Market in Kilcruttin Business Park and the girls worked very hard not to be distracted by the delicious smells and yummy food that surrounded them. They were handsomely rewarded for their beautiful singing with plenty of tasty treats. Thank you to all the parents who brought their children along – the performance was very much appreciated by the venders and seasonal shoppers alike.
3rd Class and Ms. Tannian’s class went to Tullamore Library and discovered a lot more than just books on their journey. The Library presented a very special showing of Santa Claus the movie and the girls were completely enthralled. Everyone is now most definitely in the spirit of Christmas! Thank you Tullamore Library.
The girls of 2nd class were given the keys to the kingdom, aka access to the art supplies cupboard during the week. They were then instructed to let their imagination take over in order decorate the walls of the classroom with some festive cheer! Oh my goodness the creativity was fabulous – just take a look at what some of the class came up with.
3rd class seem to be having a little too much fun with maths these days! This week is all about 3D shapes and the girls are getting creative with the task at hand. As well as maths, of course, they are filling the classroom with book reviews, art and stories from Ancient Egypt. Take a look at our photos!
Tonight the girls of 5th and 6th did Scoil Mhuire extremely proud as they performed an array of Christmas classics at the annual Darmagh Centre Christmas party in Lanello, Tullamore. Performing on tin whistles and singing numbers such as White Christmas and Stop the Cavalry – the audience was certainly entertained. The girls were treated to plenty of goodies after their performance and they are already looking forward to coming back again next year!! Thank you everyone for a wonderful evening of festive cheer – we are definitely in the Spirit of things now!!!
Our first public performance of the festive season was this evening in Pearse Park, where we were thrilled to be invited to sing at the official switching on of the Christmas Lights. It was a wonderful occasion and despite the chilly conditions the girls sang Christmas classics such as Away in a Manger, Silent Night and Winter Wonderland – to a very appreciative crowd. Thank you for having us!!
It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas and what better way to mark this magical time of year than with our annual Advent ceremony. Fr. Joe popped in to share this beautiful ceremony with us and the children rose to the occasion with excellent reading and angelic singing. Now that the crib is in place and the first of our advent candles is lit, we are all ready to kick the season off on a high…..be warned – this blog is about to be flooded with photos of stunning art and perhaps some musical treats!!
