5th class recently finished the filming of our 'latest' blockbuster movie, 'Stranded'. On Thursday 25th May we went to
The Set Theatre in Kilkenny to watch films created and produced by other schools as well as our own . There were six other schools there in total and all the films were brilliant.
At the end of the showcase a special guest from Young Irish Film Makers presented each school with an award. We got a clapper board and and an 'Oscar' statue. We got an award for the best use of Green Screen.
On the way out each child got a goodie bag for all our hard work. We really enjoyed making the film, it really brought our class together and would love to do something like it again.

.Once again we had a very successful Book Week packed with activities ranging from visits to Dubray bookshop to dressing up as book characters on World Book Day and including Khan’s Book Fair, where over €2,825 was spent yielding €700 worth of books to add to the class libraries. Congratulations to the lucky winners of the Book Bingo activity and well done to everyone for the wide range of reading that took place.
Bhí lá iontach ag gach duine i Scoil Mhuire inniu. Bhain na páistí go léir an-taitneamh as na damhsaí éagsúla a rinne siad. Ba bhreá linn buíochas mór a ghabháil d'Ann Egan don obair a dhéanann sí gach seachtain leis na páístí agus go háirithe roimh an gCéilí seo. Lá Fhéile Pádraig shona daoibh.
Our debating team was in action recently, opposing the motion, "Child labour is a necessity in the developing world." Well done to Rory, Matthew, Stephanie, Alicia, Aaron and Leanne who did a great job.
On Saturday, December 17th, the children's choir under the guidance of Paul, Deirdre and Claire sang a wonderful selection of Christmas songs and carols, traditional and new, in the Arboretum Garden Centre in Leighlinbridge. They had great support from their parents and famiies and the enthusiastic performance was enjoyed by all in attendance.
On Thursday, November 24th, our new Buddy Bench arrived from Carlow Men's Shed. The pupils from 1st and 2nd classes then got advice from Judith Ashton, Psychotherapist, on using the bench to promote friendship and inclusion in school life.
A huge thank you to last year's 6th class who came up with the idea and funded it from the proceeds of their Junior Entrepreneur Project!
