September Newsletter

Welcome Back

Scoil Mhuire extends a warm welcome back to all children following the summer holidays. We especially welcome our new Junior Infants who are adjusting very well to being at school and are growing in independence. Ms Power, Ms Leane and Ms McCloskey report that the children are making lots of new friends and enjoying the great variety in their new routine. Our photos show finger gym activities, play doh, threading, jig saws and peg boards. The art photos speak for themselves as each child proudly displays their masterpiece.

Goodbye to Ms. Dennis

Congratulations to Ms. Dennis who retired from Scoil Mhuire on September 30th.  Ms. Dennis joined our school in 1993 having already taught in St. Marys and Grange NS.  Pupils and colleagues both past and present have been bidding farewell and extending good wishes to her. She will be fondly remembered for her love of education, her endless encouragement, her standard of excellence and her firm belief that every child should reach their potential. Ms Dennis committed herself to many projects during her time with us.  She strived to improve environmental awareness, develop an appreciation of biodiversity and aim to reuse our resources and in turn reduce waste. Ms Dennis encouraged all to take pride in their school work and to present written work as nicely and neatly as possible. Ms Dennis inspired all to become a book lover. She helped us bring our stories to life and enthused everyone to participate in World Book Day Dress up and other events. Children loved to be involved in Ms Dennis’s Book clubs. 

Traffic Wardens

Our new teams of traffic wardens have completed their induction and are now on duty at infant and general home time. Our experienced 6th class traffic wardens have set a high standard and have pledged themselves to another year of service to their school.

As always we thank the parents for their cooperation with the Junior Wardens at all times.

Our Local Seashore

Junior and infant classes have been busy learning about the local seashore. Again Tina from Heritage in Schools has been facilitating this

Summer Stars

The pupils in Scoil Mhuire love to read. Many children participated in the Reading Stars initiative which is run by Dungarvan library. Certificates and Medals were delivered to us and presented this week. Well done all and keep up the great work!

Cycle Training

Cycle Right have been visiting our school every Tuesday and 5th class pupils have been learning a lot about basic bicycle maintenance and bicycle safety checks.  The two Nialls have created a streetscape in the school yard using coloured cones to mark junctions and roundabouts. This all improves everyone’s general road sense and makes everyone aware of their responsibilities when using a public road.  It’s a very healthy way to come to school and has improved the traffic conditions around Scoil Mhuire in the morning and evening time.
