On the 28th of November a very special ceremony took place in the halla in Scoil Mhuire to honour all the pupils who had full attendance for the school year 2017-2018. 26 pupils received invitations along with their families to attend the event which was organised by our Deputy Principal Clar Ní Bhriain.
Last Wednesday, the 21st of November, Scoil Mhuire celebrated its annual “Open Night” by opening its doors to the public to showcase all the amazing talents of our wonderful school and its pupils. What a busy night it was with parents and pupils both new and old thronging through the doors. Here they were greeted by our First class pupils singing a medley of songs they learn in school.Perspective parents were then brought to see the infant classrooms and meet the teachers by our amazing 6th class Tour guides. There was an opportunity along the way to take a Brain Break with our active First class pupils or even have a tea or coffee with our lovely P.F.A association in the Library. If all that wasn’t enough the melodious tones of our school “Banna Ceoil” brought you up the corridor to the school Halla where you were also treated to a performance from our 6th class Feis Mathew Winners .STEM education has a very important place in Scoil Mhuire and pupils from 4th ,5th and 6th class showcased this magnificently with Computer Coding demonstrations and you even got a chance to meet your new school Robotics Team for 2018 . Across the corridor the After-school Science club was drawing quite a crowd and for those who had some energy left to spare there was Zuma and Gymnastics displays too. It really was a night to remember for everyone involved.
Scoil Mhuire was thrilled to welcome past pupil Leah Weste, Cork Intermediate Camogie Player along with Hannah O’ Leary and Orla Keating ,Cork Minor Camogie Players to show us not one, not two but three All-Ireland Final Winning Camogie Trophies for Cork at Senior, Intermediate and Minor levels. Leah herself also won an award for being picked as member of the Intermediate All-Star team for 2018. It was a lovely opportunity to show all our girls in Scoil Mhuire where hard work and perseverance can get you in sports Leah began her days playing with Scoil Mhuire in the Sciath na Scol competitions as a 5th and 6th class pupil.

The 22nd of October 2018 wasn’t the usual Monday morning at school for Scoil Mhuire 6th class girls who ventured to the Strand Hotel in Limerick for the ‘Late Late’ Toy Show auditions. The girls were honoured to be the one of only 3 groups to feature for the press call on the launch of the Toy Show auditions. The eye-catching element of their piece was their ode to 100 year’s anniversary of women’s rights to vote (1918 – 2018). Ryan Tubrity was so impressed that he even joined in on their performance!The girls spoke so eloquently to the various news reporters including RTE’s Úna O’ Hagan as well as reporters from radio stations such as Live 95 FM. The cherry on the cake was featuring on RTE 1 news where they danced and sang a medley from Mary Poppins musical and films (one coming to cinema’s soon). Following the Press Call, the girls remained poised and focused as they faced the RTE judges who couldn’t help singing and clapping along. This boosted the girls’ confidence who gave the performance of a life-time. Previously, the students, under the direction of their Sixth class teacher and choreographer Muireann Ní Chochláin, had won first prize in the Action Song competition at Feis Maitiú. At the auditions the students gave it everything and brought great joy and excitement to us all Scoil Mhuire. Today was living proof of the Scoil Mhuire motto – ‘Mol an Óige agus Tiocfaidh Sí’ (Praise the Young and They Will Flourish.
Best of luck to 36 of our six class Pupils who are off to the Late Late Toy Show audition on Monday in The Strand Hotel Limerick. The school received a phone call on Wednesday afternoon to invite the girls to audition to sing their action song Medley from Mary Poppins. The girls already won First Prize for their performance of Mary Poppins medley in the Feis Mathew last year. We are all very excited here in Scoil Mhuire and so proud of our pupils for getting this opportunity. Thanks also to their hard working teachers In Uí Chochláín , In Uí Ailíosa and In Uí Shé. You can check out their amazing performance for yourself in the video above.
Last Wednesday. October 10th, Rang a Sé ventured on a field trip along the course of the River Lee. With Príomhoide Iníon Uí Mhurchú as tour guide, they stopped along various points including the Gearagh, Toon’s Bridge, Inchigeelagh and Ballingeary to name but a few. A highlight of our trip was visiting the beautiful Gougane Barra. There we saw the source of the River Lee. Another highlight was seeing the Inniscarra Dam where electricity is generated. They were also very lucky to meet local man Neil Lucey who told them all about the legend of St. Finbarr and Gougane Barra.They were full of knowledge as they journeyed home over the Inniscarra bridge and back to school! Thank you to Iníon Uí Mhurchú who organised and planned such a wonderful outdoor classroom experience.
