Here is a look back at last year’s event!
Junior Infants are very busy this month as they begin to explore through Aistear.
Our first theme is Autumn and we are enjoying learning about the trees, the hedgehog, the squirrel and many other adventures at this time.
We are particularly busy building sheds for our animals and we love making plenty of nuts and berries with playdough.
We were little squirrels ourselves today as we went out to the nearby park to find some autumn leaves and nuts for our classroom.
The girls of Scoil Mhuire represented themselves and the school very well at the national schools cross country competition that was held in Tullamore Harriers last week. Medal winner Monica of third class went on to collect yet another medal at this weekend’s cross county competition. Congratulations to you all!!
Senior Infants have been learning about animals that hibernate and looking out for the signs of autumn. Both classes went on a walk in the park and gathered leaves and looked out for fallen acorns and beech nuts.
Aida from 2nd class made the most amazing autumnal diorama that she proudly showed to the rest of the school! Well Done!!
The girls of 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th were treated to a demonstration and an excellent talk by the Transition Year students of Tullamore College who were representing Hockey Club, Tullamore. Having achieved an incredible 2nd place in the Women’s Hockey World Cup, the Irish Hockey Team are now looking to ensure that their future is in safe hands. They are offering free sessions for the entire month of October. The more the merrier!
This was Anti-Bullying week here at Scoil Mhuire. The children took part in daily lessons regarding our zero tolerance of bullying in our school. Next Friday a presentation will be made to the students for their anti bullying posters and poems. The pupils of 6th class looked at the implications of cyberbullying. Roblox? Fortnite?

We are immensely proud of our girls who took part in their first match of the school year. They faced St. Philomenas and did Scoil Mhuire very proud. For some girls on the team it was their first time ever to play Gaelic Football. Well done to each and every one of you.
