It is with a mixture of happiness and sadness that we gathered to say goodbye to our 6th class as they scatter to various secondary schools to continue their education.
Mass was celebrated with Fr Anthony and as always Mrs O Brien our 6th class teacher had prepared a music treat for the guests; staff, children, families and members of the Board of Management.
All the guests enjoyed tea and coffee and cakes provided by the 5th class parents.
Even there were a few tears, a very enjoyable time was had by all!
All the staff here in Scoil Mhuire would like to wish this group of fantastic young people all the best in their future. We know they will go out into the world and do us and their families proud!
On a beautiful summers day all the pupils of Scoil Mhuire gathered together to get fit and active!
All children were divided into groups then it was down to our fantastic new yard for stations to practice our skills.
After all the fun and games in the morning there was some serious business to attend to. As you know Scoil Mhuire has been awarded a fourth Green Flag and this had to be raised in an official ceremony.
There were speeches from some of 6th class (Reka, Cara, Caoimhe B, Caoimhe M, Andrew and Luke) who explained what the Green Flag meant to them. They spoke not only to our students but also to the parents that had gathered to celebrate with us.
Chotika did a fantastic job of raising the flag for us. The birthday girl was delighted with her cake!
.Next it was onto the serious business of the races. Children had been practicing at home and in the yard all week to ensure they would be the first to cross the line.
It could be said however that the mammies and daddies races were the most hotly contested....the less said about the teachers' race the better!
After all the exertions it was time for the bbq, ice cream truck and most importantly the medal ceremony...
Congratulations to all the medal winners and congrats to all the children who took part today. As always the children of Scoil Mhuire did themselves and their families proud.
Many thanks to all the parents and families that came to support our special day we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
