First Holy Communion Party

Congratulations to all of the Second Class children who made their First Holy Communion this year. 

The Parents Association, along with the 3rd class parents, were honoured to be involved in the party in the Halla Mór afterwards for the children and their families. This party gives the opportunity for families to connect with the school community, and the children to spend time with their friends before their family celebrations commence.  

The Parents’ Association would like to thank all of the 3rd class parents who volunteered to bake food, decorate the hall and serve tea and coffee to the communion party guests. This party could not happen without the support you kindly offered. 

A special thank you goes to Centra, in particular Eleanor Kyne, who kindly donated the contents of the party bags for the communion and choir children. The generosity of this donation was greatly appreciated. 

Scoil Mhuire is lucky to have two very talented teachers who own the Balloon Boutique. Sandra & Nora Ni Dhonnacha’s beautiful balloon centrepieces were the highlight of the decor in the Halla Mor. They also donated the lovely balloon display at the entrance. I have included their details below for anyone who has an upcoming event. 

And of course, none of this would have been possible without the hard  work of the Communion Party Committee: Audrey Trigg, Arlene Cooke, Sinead Valla & Elaine Newell. 

Thank you
