Junior Hurling

While our boys’ senior hurling team and our camogie team are well into their league programme, our junior hurlers will be getting in on the action after Easter. The junior hurling team will be made up mainly of boys from 3rd, 4th and 5th class and trials will take place during the first week back after the Easter holidays


Santry Sports will take place on Wednesday, 4th June. Santry Stadium is the main athletics track in Ireland and every year we send a team of athletes there to represent Scoil Mhuire in sprints and relays. After the Easter holidays we will be holding trials for boys and girls from 3rd to 6th class and the fastest children will be on the bus to Santry. There are four age groups-Under 10, Under 11, Under 12 and Under 13½ . So make sure you all get out and about during the holidays practising your sprinting- and go easy on the Easter Eggs !

Aladdin Merchandise

As I’m sure you are well aware at this stage, our school production of Aladdin will be taking place in the school hall tonight and tomorrow night at 7.30pm. To commemorate this event the children of 6th class have designed a stationery set and a musical programme. The stationery set consists of a ruler, an eraser, a parer and two pencils. The programme is A4 sized and features profiles of the lead characters, a synopsis of the show, some fun and games and much more!

These will be on sale in the school before and after school and before and after the shows. The programme retails at €5, while the stationery set is priced at just €4. These are both wonderful designed mementos and would be great reminders of all the work the children of Scoil Mhuire have put into the show.

Our Bedrooms!

Ms Reilly’s 3rd Class got up to great stuff with their student teacher, Mr. Kirwan, recently. As part of a 3-D Art lesson the children designed their ideal bedrooms. Move over ‘Room to Improve’, there’s some new style geniuses in town!

Well done to our senior hurlers who made it two wins from two with a hard fought 3-9 to 2-2 win over a battling Sruleen team. A very tight pitch didn’t suit the Lucan boys and they held a narrow four point lead at half time . However a much improved second half display saw Scoil Mhuire increase their advantage by the end. Charlie Keher was very accurate from placed balls and Phillip Kane was his usual rock solid self. Mark Gormley was excellent in goal while James Kebana was the hardest worker on the field setting Seán Egan up for a couple of poacher’s goals. Aaron Meaney was also to the fore. This win sets up a very tasty local derby after Easter against Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada. We have now qualified for the quarter finals but a win against our local rivals will ensure a more favourable draw in the knock out stages.

Well done to four of our pupils who made the Lucan Sarsfields juvenile all-stars this week. Robert Hazely, Mark Gormley and Eoin Mahony are on our senior hurling team .Seán Treanor from 2nd class is a star of the future.

Grandparent’s Day in Ms Ryan’s 5th class

Grandparent’s Day
On Thursday 30th of January 5th class had Grandparent’s Day. It was organised by the 5th class teachers, principal and our Chaplain Colette. Grandparents came into our school to see their grandchildren’s Art/Work/Projects/Class rooms etc.
We had a ceremony for the grandparents. Some kids read readings or prayers. I read a reading. It was a lovely little service. After the ceremony we gave our grandparents flowers. I gave my grandparents a narcissus. They loved it .Later on we all went back to our classrooms. We sang a song from Aladdin and we also sang the Dublin Saunter and they joined in with us. Before Grandparent’s Day we wrote poems for them and we read them out. I think they really enjoyed them. Then we played some games. We played cards and Scrabble it was great fun. Sadly the day was over and the grandparents had to go home and I went home too. We had a lovely day thank you.

grandparents day

On Thursday the 30th of January we had Grandparent’s Day. It was one of the happiest, most joyful and pleasant days of my life. First of all we went to a prayer service and we sat beside our grandparents. It was lovely. When it finished we presented our grandparents with flowers. I gave my nana a salmon coloured primrose. Then we headed off to the classroom. My nana was amazed with all the beautiful artwork outside the classroom. When we went into the classroom she sat in my seat and everyone played “A Whole New World” on the recorder. Then we sang “The Dublin Saunter” and everyone joined in. Earlier in the week we had written poems about our grandparents. So we read them out and presented them to our grandparents. Then I gave my nana a tour of my classroom. My nana was amazed with the “interactive white board”. My nana described it as a “computer on the wall”. She was also amazed with the lift. I hope the grandparents enjoyed the day, because I know I did.

In the morning we had a ceremony. Aaron read a prayer and Agata lit the candle. At the end of the ceremony the grandchildren picked a narcisis, or a primrose flower. When the ceremony was over, our grandparents came to our classroom and sat in our seats. We played, ”A Whole New World” on the recorder and sang it too. We read out our poems and then we played games. The grandparents who were playing SCRABBLE were greeted by a big WELCOME spelt on the tiles. Some grandparents laughed. Grandparents Day was great

On grandparents day we had great fun. Here’s how it went:.It was the 30th of January and when we went into class we quickly tidied up our desks and we got out the games and set them up. After that we went to the hall for the prayer service. When the service was over we all got flowers for our grandparents. Then our grandparents came to our class and we played our recorders. We played Aladdin A Whole New World and sang the Dublin Saunter. Our grandparents also joined in. We asked them a few questions such as: What was your school called? Then we got to read out our poems we wrote. When the visit was over, we got no homework!!! It was great fun. Near home time we got to watch the rest of Aladdin. It was a great day!

Victory for Camogie Team

The Scoil Mhuire camogie team recorded their first victory of the 2014 season on Wednesday last, April 2nd. Led by captain Sarah Cramp the girls once again displayed how much they are improving week on week and how well they gel together as a team. It was fantastic to see the girls supporting each other and delivering excellent passes to each other. Goalie Sinéad Keogh commanded the defence which was immense and our forwards were goal hungry. Scoring the grand total of seven to feed their appetite! The match ended on a scoreline of 7-0 to 1-0 in favour of Scoil Mhuire. Well done girls.

Team: Sinéad Keogh, Gráinne McGee, Isabella Fay, Sarah Cramp, Caitríona Chambers, Aoibheann Higgins, Naomi Sebastien, Erica O’Reilly (2-0), Eva Bell, Ellie Wisdom, Katie Wisdom (2-0), Ciara Flemming, Chloe Harnett (1-0), Chi Chi Ubaekwe (2-0), Bevin Kelleher, Abigale Domfe

The next match will be when we return after the Easter break. No after school training this week as Aladdin fever takes over.

Aladdin Update & Photos!

Rehearsals have come to a close, seating is in, microphones have arrived and the band have broken up amid internal rancour (only joking about the last one!). The week of our 6th school musical (Aladdin) is upon us. On Monday we will have a dress rehearsal so please ensure that the children come to the school with their costumes. Also on Monday we will begin selling our professionally produced Aladdin Programme. The programme was designed, developed and produced as part of a “Bí Ghnóthach” business project by the children of Mr. Roche’s 6th class. A huge thanks goes to Paul Mulcahy (father of Kym who features as a Narrator in the show) for printing the programme for us.

This programme will be available either in the lobby of the school or just outside (weather depending) every morning and afternoon next week. It costs €5 but when you see it I’m sure you’ll agree it’s money well spent. Programmes will also be available to buy each night and day of the show. All proceeds from the sale of the programme goes towards funding the cost of the musical.

A special thanks goes to the Scoil Mhuire Mammies! who have been camped out in the school sewing material together to make trousers and to cover tables and stalls. There are photos below of some of the preparations and of the programme.

Enjoy the show!
