County Tipperary Schools Cross Country Championships
Congratulations to all the pupils in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Classes who took part in the Schools’ County Cross Country Championships in Thurles on Wednesday Oct 1st. Following their training schedule in school, every pupil completed the course – no mean feat when one considers the distances of 800m and 1000m! Once again we witnessed some wonderful individual and team performances from our students. Shane Buckley, 3rd Class ran a fantastic race and won a gold medal in his category. Ben Loughman, 6th Class won a bronze medal in his category for the second year in a row. Our Senior Boys’ Team won a silver team medal with Ben Loughman, Reuben Bourke, Jack Breen and David Carroll leading in the team.
Many thanks to all who helped-out on the day, especially our very enthusiastic teachers and snas. Thanks also to John Moore and Dundrum Athletic Club for their support and help. Well done to Emby Walshe and the County Tipperary Athletic Association for the wonderful work they do in organising this great event.
Congratulations to our Past Pupils
Well done to all Scoil Mhuire’s past pupils on their great results in the Leaving Cert and in the Junior Cert. We are all very proud of you and wish you the very best in the future.
Visit to Cappamurra Bog
The pupils in 5th and 6th Classes, together with their teachers, went on a field trip to Cappamurra Bog during September. It was a great visit to this magical place of natural beauty on our own doorstep. We plan to follow-up on the trip in our art workshops with Caoimhín from the National Gallery of Ireland, who will be coming to Scoil Mhuire in the coming weeks.
