A note from the Principal

Thank you for your interest in Scoil Mhuire Primary School. We hope that the information you can find on our website shows you what a vibrant school we are. We believe that we offer the children who join us a caring learning environment which facilitates nurturing of each pupil’s full educational potential.
 
The achievement of this aim informs all of the planning processes and activities which occur in our school. We appreciate that children come to us from a variety of cultural, religious and social backgrounds. We respect all of our children for their uniqueness and we promote tolerance and understanding throughout our school.
 
We view parents as our partners in education and communication between home and school as vital ingredients in the education process.
 
Scoil Mhuire has a very 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.

This year our very active Green Committee is hoping to lead the school in it's attempt for it's seventh Green Flag which is Global Citizenship - Energy. We are very proud of this achievement as we are one of the very few schools to be on our seventh Green Flag!

Our children take part in many exciting events in our school.Our school represented Offaly in AIT Athlone schools' athletics championships on the 9th March 2016 with one of our pupils on the Leinster U12 and U13 Track teams. In 2017, our athletics team won the Colin Dunne, Offaly Schools Athletics Championships.

Our camogie and football teams are a credit to their trainers and parents. In 2017, both our camogie and football teams reached the finals of Cumann na mBunscol championships which is a huge achievement. We had success in art competitions and our school choir is to sing for Confirmation this year and is often heard performing at local events. 

With your continued support we hope to continue these successes.  

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.

Kind regards,

Fionnuala Doheny - Principal
