Scoil Mhuire Newsletter  October 2010

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

A full month back in school already and with the good weather we are fortunate to be still using our grassy areas for play. A lot of things are planned over the coming month. The Parent Association will hold its AGM on Thursday 21st October. A newsletter from the PA will give all the information in the coming weeks.

GOAL fundraiser               

6th class organised and managed our GOAL Jersey Day last Friday which raised €618 for the charity. Thank you for your support.  

We will have our Board Games afternoon on Thursday 21st October. This proved a great hit last year with children bringing in their Board Games to share and play. By donating €2 we will raise money for a “yet to be decided” local good cause.

School Photos

Every two years we organise school photographs with Colorific from Wexford. This is  totally optional for parents but most families like to get them. The cost this year has been reduced to €25 for a full set and there will be different options given. Colorific will visit the school on Tuesday 19th October. You will need to send in a note if you want family members taken together as distinct from individual photos.

Parent Courses

A series of three parent seminars are being run by the Co Wexford Education Centre at Milehouse Road, Enniscorthy.

Ballykelly Scouts Fundraiser

Ballykelly Scouts would appreciate your support for their upcoming Bazaar in Campile Hall on 24th October which will have books, toys, bric-a-brac, cakes, etc.

Football teams

Both boys and girls football teams have been busy with fixtures over the past couple of weeks. The boys have won two and lost one game. The girls have not been as successful and are meeting tough opposition in Roinn A but are nonetheless playing some fine football.

Keely Murphy and Sinéad Ryan from 6th  and Gráinne Ryan from 5th class all played in the U-14 football county final on Saturday where Horeswood  lost to Taghmon. Sinéad also played in Croke Park at half time during the All-Ireland Ladies Minor football final.

Opera competition

Scoil Mhuire is one of 5 schools countywide drawn to participate in a competition organised by the Wexford Opera Festival . One pupil will get a ticket to see this year’s opera based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and will bring a guest of their choice. Pupils had to write a piece about who they would give a “special” ticket to.....Wexford Opera will select the winner.

Musical talent 

Congratulations to Maria Cairns in 5th class who took part in the junior recital at the recent New Ross Piano Festival.

Our traditional Irish music classes are up and running with Ms Anna Murphy. There has been a lot of interest in the classes which will hopefully lead to great musical talent in the future.

Book Launch

5th class teacher Mr Crowley is launching his latest book “New Ross Remembers” this Thursday night at 8pm in the Brandon House Hotel. We wish him well with his latest historical publication.
