TOWN-HALL MEETING REGARDING OUR NEW SCHOOL Thurs 31st Jan at 8pm
Our school is included in the 2019 to 2021 Phase of the Department of Education and Skills School Building Plan. A brand new school will be built for Scoil Mhuire during this phase. The Board of Management will hold a Town-Hall Meeting in the Halla Mór at 8pm on Thursday 31st of January, which we hope will leave the school community and wider community of Maigh Cuilinn fully informed about our progress to date. We will post the exact date and time of this meeting as soon as possible after the holidays. All members of the school community wider community are welcome to attend.
The construction of a new school will bring about innumerable benefits for the Community of Moycullen. We are very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet the Minister for Education and Skills on our school’s behalf. We hope to have some positive news on our New School to relay in the very near future.
Principal of Scoil Mhuire Terry Kavanagh and Paddy Byrne of our Board of Management met with our new Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh on Tuesday 18th December at Leinster House. The meeting was facilitated by Minister for the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands Sean Kyne. The progress to date on the building of our New School was discussed. The meeting was extremely positive, with both ministers very well informed and aware of the need to provide our pupils and teachers with a new school as quickly as possible. We appreciate Minister McHugh taking the time to meet us and for engaging with the Department of Education and Skills’ Building Unit. We are very grateful to our own local minister, Sean Kyne for his help and for facilitating the meeting with Minister McHugh.
On Monday 17th December Ms O’Toole’s 5th Class visited the ancestral home of Ruaidhrí Ó Flaithearta, Moycullen Castle. Eugene Jordan of the Moycullen Historical Society spoke to the children about the history of the castle. Afterwards, a selection of children from the four schools in the parish gathered in our newest classroom, where the read excerpts from Moycullen Historical Society‘s book “ Ruaidhrí Ó Flaithearta – How Moycullen got its Name”. Pupils from all four schools had helped to illustrate the book. A film crew from RTE was there to record it all for RTE’s News2Day programme, which aired the following day and can be seen on the RTE player . Have a look!!
