Student Council Shoe Box Appeal

The Student Council and all of the children in Scoil Mhuire have worked very hard over the past month to put together shoe boxes full of goodies for our Shoe Box Appeal. The Student Council reminded the children to bring in the 4W's for people who have less than us at Christmas time. We were overwhelmed by all of the items to wash with, wear, write with and WOW items. When the student Council started to organise the shoe boxes and divide the items equally, we couldn't believe that we had gathered nearly 50 shoe boxes full!! A huge 'Thank You' to everyone who donated to our appeal. We are delighted to know that we are supporting those less fortunate this Christmas.

Merry Christmas to all of the Scoil Mhuire families!

Health Promoting School Flag

Ms Ormiston and the Health Promoting Team are delighted to announce that Scoil Mhuire have been awarded their Health Promoting flag.  Carmel Halpin, the Health Promoting Officer, made the presentation on the 18th of December 2019.  Every pupil in the school was presented with a Health Promoting towel and some parents from the PA made delicious fruit platters to celebrate the occasion - a big thank you to Patricia O’Reilly, Mary Flanagan and Jody Gilsenan!

Well done to the HPS team for all their hard work over the past two and half years for embedding and encouraging healthy habits over our 4 main areas; To Improve and work on our Positive Mental Health, To Improve our Nutrition and Eating Habits, To Promote Physical Activity and To Promote Hand Hygiene.  We will continue to work on these areas and make Scoil Mhuire a super healthy school!
Thanks to the whole school community; staff, pupils and parents for embracing the process and implementing it in their daily lives making it a huge success.  Let’s keep up the good work in the new year!
HPS Team: Mikey Smyth, Lilly Kangley, Finn McEllin, Lucy Gilsenan, Ewan Gilsenan, Tara Olwell, Maya Ormiston and James Carville.  And a huge thank you to Ciaran McEllin our parent rep who has been very helpful and supportive throughout the process!
