The Board of Management of Scoil Mhuire in partnership with Scoil Bhríde Tullamore is delighted with the announcement that the already sanctioned building project is proceeding to construction in 2015.
This development will enhance both schools by provision of:
· School refurbishment and extension for Scoil Mhuire to replace existing pre-fabs.
· Safer new drop-off /collection area for pupils to include turning bay.
· Enhanced play areas for both schools.
· Improved staff and visitor car-parking for both schools.
· New entrance for both schools.
· Enhanced storage areas for both schools.
· Enhanced access and vistas to the Town Park.
Both Boards of Management have positively facilitated and endorsed this development as it affords a vision which future-proofs education of the pupils of both Scoil Mhuire and Scoil Bhríde.
This exciting new development has been designed by Tullamore resident and native Ross McNamara (McCarthy O’Hora Architects) who is himself a past pupil of Scoil Bhríde.
We are sure that like us you are delighted with this news and we thank you for your support throughout the process. The Building Committee of the Board of Management would also like to thank the officials in the Department of Education and Skills Major Building Projects Unit who assisted us with our many queries along the way.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and we are looking forward to 2015 already!
Scoil Mhuire has a talented team of staff who support the achievement of high standards in all aspects of school life- curriculum, sport, music, art, science and information technology. We have achieved a number of national awards to date.
Last year we had many exciting events in our school. Our children took part in gymnastics, athletics . Our camogie and football teams were a credit to their trainers and parents. We had success in art competitions and our school choir performed beautifully and raised some funds for the school and a local charity. This year our very active Green Committee has led the school to achieve it's 5th Green Flag. We are very proud of this achievement.. We had success in the INTO Handwriting Competition. Senior and Junior Quiz Teams had great success in the Credit Union School Quiz Competition. Our Junior team represented us in the National final of the Credit Union Quiz 2012. We took part in the Dissolving Boundaries Programme 2011 and 2nd and 3rd Class took part in Keep on Track in 2011.
With your support we hope to continue these successes in the coming year.
I hope that like us, you are excited by what Scoil Mhuire has to offer. I hope, too, that you will share our vision for the school over the years to come.
