Here is the New Look for the Scoil Mhuire Boys and Girls for 2014/2015
Today you will have received an update on the results of our school uniform survey. There are some pictures above for your information. The uniform remains largely the same with navy tights added in for the girls and dark navy trousers for the boys. Before ever the survey was suggested by the Minister for Education there had been some concerns expressed by parents regarding the price of the boy's green trousers. As green is an un-common colour it was not possible to source a cheaper version so it was decided that navy would be a better option. These are more widely available and cheaper so there are some savings there. For the same reason it was decided that the PE tracksuit bottoms will be plain dark navy (no stripes, no logos) and these are also widely available and cheaper. These small changes should help to reduce costs while also retaining a distinct uniform for the school. It is envisaged that the changes should begin from September 2014 or as soon as you are replacing a trousers, tracksuit bottoms or tights. We expect a phasing in period so by December 2015 we should have our new look uniform well established. We hope that you are happy with this outcome and that you will support us in encouraging the children to take pride in wearing their full school uniform each day.
Thank you all for partaking in the survey and a huge thank you to our Parents Association for their work in liaising with suppliers, school and the Board of Management.
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.
Any parent thinking of sending your child to our school is very welcome to visit us at the office where we will be very happy to talk to you.
