Here in Scoil Mhuire we have been celebrating Seachtain an Gaeilge over the past two weeks. While the older classes enjoyed a Tráth na gCeist the younger classes took part in some traditional dancing. There was even a dreoilín from 2nd and 3rd Class.We finished off the week with an assembly in which the whole school came together to perform An Haka Gaelach. We were also treated to a lovely rendition of Ámhrán na bhFiann from Mrs Ryan’s class.
The whole school showed their performance skills at our annual Christmas Concert on Thursday the 22nd of December. Beautiful singing, stunning recorder playing, a nativity and a very entertaining "Elf Factor" ensured a great show!
A huge amount of work was put in by teachers and students and we hope all the parents enjoyed the two performances.
There has been some rather spooky sights spotted around the halls of Scoil Mhuire this Friday.
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!

On the 2Oth of May 2nd Class of Scoil Mhuire made their First Holy Communion in St Mary's Church, Knockraha.
Their teacher Ms Ní Bhuachalla made sure they sure that they were well prepared to receive the Sacrament and a very special mass, with beautiful music was enjoyed by all the gathered parents, grandparents and other family and friends.
After the ceremony all assembled came back to the school to enjoy the refreshments supplied by the First Class parents.
All the children enjoyed their party and left afterwards to continue the celebrations!
There was much excitement in Scoil Mhuire today when Mrs O Brien and 3 hardworking members of the Green School Committee (Caoimhe, Rihanna and Eva) collected our 4th Green Flag today.
As you can imagine this was a very proud day for Mrs O Brien and the Green Schools committee . A huge amount of work is put into the application for this flag and it effect on teaching the children about environmental awareness cannot be underestimated.
There was a great welcome to those returning with our latest flag from the children and staff of Scoil Mhuire.
We look forward to celebrating the raising of this flag very soon with you .
Scoil Mhuire's fantastic swimmers had a great day out at the Northside Gala in Mayfield swimming pool.
After our amazing performance last year we were promoted from the plate to the cup competition and competed against schools with a lot more pupils than us!
All our swimmers did so well, with some even bringing home medals!
Congratulations to all!
This April our school has seen some big changes.
Our yard has been upgraded so their is more space for us to play.
This is what it looked like before!
Over the Easter break lots of people were very busy working very hard to create a bigger, better yard for all the children to play in.
As you can imagine there was great excitement among all the children to see such big trucks in our playground.
After a few days it was all ready for playtime!
