CAIRDE CHRISTMMAS OUTING
THIS is the third year of the Cairde Mentoring Programme at Scoil Mhuire where Transition Year students mentor First Year students and help them with the often difficult transition from primary school into secondary school.
Part of this programme involves the TYs and their Cairde group going on an outing together. This week they enjoyed a trip to Cork, where they went bowling.

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL CHRISTMAS APPEAL.
MANY thanks to all those who contributed to the St Vincent de Paul Christmas Food Appeal at Scoil Mhuire. In recent weeks members of the local branch of the organisation spoke to the Pre-Leaving students about the work and services provided by St. Vincent de Paul. The students then organised a collection in school and there was a fantastic response.
