Annual Bake Sale in aid of CRY

We held our annual Bake Sale in aid of CRY on Friday 26th May. This event organised by Mrs Daly has become very much looked forward to in our school as we remember our past pupils Niamh and Darra, whilst fundraising for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young). Once again the sale was very well supported. A large array of freshly made buns, cakes, tarts and treats were donated. The children really enjoyed spending their money and enjoyed their treats. In the afternoon many locals attended the hall to enjoy a cup of tea and a chat. Míle Búiochas to all who who worked so hard to make the day a success. Thanks to the children and their families who supported the bake sale. We are looking forward to next year already!

GAA Update!

We have been very busy in the GAA department at Monagea NS in recent times.

The camogie team participated in a blitz on Monday last. They played Croagh, Shountrade and Granagh. The girls played well against stiff competition and managed a win against Granagh. Míle buíochas to Mrs. Daly for training the team.

Huge congratulations to Lilly Duggan and Ava Baynham who were successful in obtaining a place in the Eithne Neville Team. It was a huge honour for the girls to play with this team and the school was very proud of their efforts.  Many thanks to Ms. Denise Fitzgerald who was a selector for the team.

We wish the school team the very best of luck in their upcoming semi final, details of which are yet to be fixed. We wish them all along with their trainer/coach/selector. Ms. Fitzgerald, continued success.

First Holy Communion 2017

Congratulations to the boys and girls from Second class who received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on May 13th 2017.  They were a credit to themselves, their families and their teacher Ms. Heffernan. Well done also to the members of the School Choir who were so good to attend on their day off. They were in full voice and greatly admired by the huge crowd that was in attendance.  Thank you to Caoimhe and Niamh who served mass.  Míle Buíochas to Canon Duhig and Fr. Mockler for officiating at the ceremony. We wish all of the children, along with their families the very best as they continue their journey of faith. May they do their best to live like Jesus every day.
