Thanks for the Memories!

Many thanks for the memories and the kind wishes over this past week! The children’s surprise party on Wednesday was the best part. I really enjoyed all the amazing secret work that went on when I wasn’t looking! The video was great fun and brings back memories of many happy days here in Scoil Mhuire. It was so rewarding to be working with such talented and generous staff and pupils.I wish everyone a really good holiday and I hope the sun will shine for you all both now and into the future.

Slán agus Beannacht from Mairead.

“Slipping Through My Fingers” by Áine O Neill

This beautiful painting by Aine O Neill entitled “Slipping Through My Fingers” was presented as a going away present to the school from the Class of 2017. It really has to be seen to be appreciated and is hanging in our school foyer—please call in to have a closer look.

Photographs of Graduation will be available soon!
