The whole school took a walk to the cinema today – for some it was the highlight of the year!
Many thanks to our Parents and Friends Association who not only helped to fund the trip but helped us to cross the roads safely on the way to the cinema and on our way back.
Pupils in each class had a chance to vote from a selection of films earlier in the week and we finally settled on seeing the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Big Haul”, “Boss Baby” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge”. We made good selections and everyone seemed to enjoy this cinematic experience!
In May 2017, four very interested scientists in 6th class were selected to make a trip to UCC to represent our school at the Salters’ Institute Festival of Chemistry. This Salters’ Festival of Chemisty is one of 51 festivals that happened throughout the UK and Ireland in 2017, aiming to promote the appreciation of chemistry and related sciences amongst the young. We are very grateful to our PFA who both made this opportunity possible and covered the costs involved in attending and traveling to the event. Bean Ui Shúilleabháin traveled with the girls for the day.
As you can see, our students had a very interesting day: they had a chance to participate in a lab challenge and also got to see a chemistry magic show. We were very proud to have been awarded 3rd prize in the challenge and also 3rd place in the university challenge. We came home with a lovely box of science resources for the school. We’re are especially proud to have done so well as we were the only participating primary school at the event!
In March 2012 a whole school production took place in Colaiste Choilm. The show was called Cirque and showcased the variety of talents of pupils and teachers in Scoil Mhuire. Each class performed a unique piece of work based on the concept of Cirque du Soleil. The show was colourful and creative and performed to a full house over three nights. The success of the show was a result of a cooperative effort between pupils, teachers and parents, in particular the P.F.A.
