Visit of the Lord Mayor

This morning we were delighted to welcome Cllr John Sheehan, The Lord Mayor of Cork, to Scoil Naomh Micheál.

Children, parents and staff gathered in the Community Hall where the Lord Mayor spoke with us and answered questions from the children. The school choir also entertained us with three fabulous songs.

Below you will see the Lord Mayor pictured with the school choir. We have more pictures and videos to follow.

Green Schools News

Students, parents and teachers walked to school together this morning wearing green to show our support for the global climate change protests taking place today. Millions of young people are demanding action on climate change. We will be learning a lot about this issue over the next two years as we work on the Biodiversity theme for our sixth Green Flag. Thank you to the Parents Association and to all of the parents and children who walked to school today.
