Sciath na Scol

On Wednesday 4th of May both our girls’ and boys’ teams played brilliantly against Rathpeacon. Well done to both teams and their coaches- Mr. O’Sullivan, Mr. Keane, Ms. O’Callaghan, Ms. Curtin and Ms. Cashman. The girls will proceed to the semi finals next week and we wish them the very best of luck!

Green Flag for Biodiversity

We are delighted to have been awarded our 6th Green Flag, this time on the theme of Biodiversity.

You will be aware of the great work that has taken place in our school over the past two years, and we are very proud of our Green Schools Team and our school community!

Thank you to all who supported us, and we look forward to raising our new flag on May 25th!

Green-Schools Biodiversity Action Week

Our biodiversity action week before the Easter holidays was a great success. Below are photos of just some of the activities that took place which included a ‘biodiversity hunt’, lots of biodiversity themed lessons, visits to the biodiversity patch (where new plants and wildflower seeds have been added) and a ‘bee dance’ which was taught to the junior classes by children in 6th class. We had a great turnout for our Walk to School and a great effort was made by children and parents to dress up for the occasion. We appreciate all of the support.

Sciath na Scol

We were delighted to start Sciath na Scol this week with our girls and boys teams playing at home against Blarney. We are looking forward to a busy few weeks of matches after the Easter Holidays!

Green-Schools Update

Next week (April 4th-April 8th), it is Green-Schools Biodiversity Action Week here at Scoil Naomh Micheál. During the week all classes will learn about Biodiversity and our Green-Schools Committee will show classes around our biodiversity patch. On Friday, all children may dress up in a biodiversity theme or wear green if they wish. We will do a group walk to school that morning, meeting at Ros Ard at 9:10.

Our application form for our sixth green flag (previous flags were awarded for our work on the themes of Litter & Waste, Energy, Water, Travel and Global Citizenship) has been submitted and we look forward to hearing good news soon.

Below are photos of our biodiversity poster competition winners being presented with their prizes by members of the Green-Schools Committee. All of the entries were bright and beautiful and really illustrated our school biodiversity motto: ‘Bugs, bees and habitats galore, biodiversity is at our school’s front door’.

Confirmation 2022

A huge congratulations to our 6th Class children who made their Confirmation this week. We had a fantastic day with fantastic weather, and it was great to celebrate with the children and their families.

Seachtain na Gaeilge Seanfhocail Competition

This year to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge each class either coloured or illustrated a seanfhocail and the results were fantastic. There were some very creative entries who now have their masterpieces displayed in the hall. Well done to all!

Here are some of the winners.

Busy times in second class!

Chinese New Year

St. Brigid’s Day

Harvey brought in some rushes and taught us how to make crosses. Thank you Harvey!

Valentine’s Day


We’re taking on the challenge of learning table tennis and we have some really great players!

Killian read a book for the class and we were so proud of his storytelling skills.

Pancake Tuesday, lots of pancakes eaten!
