Scoil Mhuire Newsletter March 2011

Dear Parents/ Guardians,  

Busy times in Scoil Mhuire through the month of March with our celebration of all things Irish leading up to St Patrick’s Day and preparation for sacraments in  2nd , 5th and 6th . Tonight sees the “Service of Light” for Confirmation candidates in St. James Church, Horeswood. On Saturday 2nd April we welcome Bishop Denis Brennan to the parish for what we hope will be a memorable day for 5th and 6th class pupils and their families.

New classroom

Scoil Mhuire has been successful in an application for funding for a new classroom which will commence during the summer holidays. This is very welcome as we are very tight for space in the infant area at the moment. The new classroom will extend the current 2nd/ 3rd corridor similar to our last extension.

Quiz competitors 

The  U-11 and U-13 teams that participated in the area final of the Credit Union quiz did exceptionally well. The U-13 team of Aoife Molloy, Jack Ronan, Aaron Mythen and James Nolan came  a creditable 3rd while the U-11 team of Martin Kinsella, Orla Nolan, Ciara Molloy and Jan Becker came 1st  in their category. The U-11 team now go to the National Finals in the RDS on Sunday April 3rd . We wish them the best of luck and a great day out.


The girl’s mini-7’s got through to Round two of this year’s competition where they won one game and lost the second. The boy’s hurling team compete in Round 2 this afternoon.

Rackard League

Ms O’ Connor and Ms O’ Hanlon have undertaken to field a Rackard League camogie team and have begun lunchtime practice. The competition starts in early April.

Community Games Art winners    

Quite a contingent represented Horeswood in the recent county Art Final across all age groups. There were two winners -  Daniel Smith came 3rd in the U-8 section and Orla Nolan was 3rd in the U-12 category. Well done to both. Lots of wonderful art work was sent into this year’s Texaco Art competition also.
