A Masterpiece on our doorstep!

Thank you all so much for your cooperation regarding the new pick up and drop off zones at our school. As you now drive down our drop and collect zone, there is no doubt that you have spied the spectacular masterpiece on the roundabout. In it’s strategic position between both Scoil Bhride and Scoil Mhuire,  The Phoenix rising from the ashes is not only the symbol for Tullamore, but for the rebirth of our school as well.

If you get the chance, have a read of the wonderful article in today’s Tullamore Tribune regarding this stunning sculpture and the artist behind it – Ralf Sander. There is also a beautiful story behind the copper and the bond between the two schools. In the meantime, here are some photos and a little video to enjoy!

Let the fun being!!

The summer is nearly over and we hope that you all had a wonderful few weeks. Wednesday is a big day for us at Scoil Mhuire as we open the doors to our magnificent new build. Before we put a virtual tour of the building up on line for you to see – this is a snippet of the super school year that has just gone and a reminder that no matter what the building – it is all about our fabulous students. We can’t wait to see you all again on Wednesday and welcome our new families to Scoil Mhuire!! Enjoy!!

Midsummer Melodies…..

One of the many magical highlights of this evening’s Midsummer Melodies- Stephen Rabbette singing Bring Him Home with a captivated audience. 

Thank you to each and every one of you- for ensuring that tonight’s concert was a huge success. The children were so proud to perform in front of such a supportive crowd of family, friends and members of the public. Weren’t they absolutely amazing???

We hope that you enjoyed this evening’s entertainment as much as we did. 

Thank you- from everyone here at Scoil Mhuire.

Athletics Champions!!

If you have popped into our school over the last 24 hours, you may have noticed a GIANT shiny trophy that is sitting pride of place at the reception. The trophy was brought home to us by our spectacular team of girls Nera, Belle, Úna, Yemi and Imelda who won the Colin Dunne, Offaly Schools Athletics Championships!! Since the competition’s inception in 2010, this is the first time that Scoil Mhuire girls have won.

We are so proud of this marvellous bunch of girls, who in their final year here at Scoil Mhuire are leaving on a high as champions! We are also so fortunate to have had another great team who showed wonderful promise and will definitely be in the running for making this a two in a row victory for Scoil Mhuire next year – well done Rachel, Maggie, Abigail, Emma and Ciara.

Let the celebrations begin!!
