Here in Scoil Mhuire, our aim is to provide a quality education for all its students in a challenging and positive environment. We emphasise the importance of every student achieving their full potential, and strive to create an encouraging and supportive atmosphere, where all of this is possible. We have been taught that it’s more important to be your best than the best.
Our Athrú group, specially selected 5th year girls who act as big sisters to the 1st years, provide encouragement and support. These girls from their own experience and training help all new students to settle in and feel at ease in their new school environment. Following first year, our senior prefects continue with this support network for all students. Both groups liaise with our dedicated staff to ensure every student is happy and fulfilling their potential.
Student development extends beyond the classroom. Every student in Scoil Mhuire has the chance to pursue their individual passion and develop lifelong skills in the process. Wherever your interest may lie- From GAA to athletics, school choir to the traditional music group “Gluais”, book club to craft club- every student is catered for. Throughout my time in Scoil Mhuire, I’ve learnt a lot both inside and outside the classroom. I’ve formed lifelong friendships, been given the opportunity to explore my interests in sport and science, as well as the self confidence, self belief and motivation to overcome any future challenges.
The caring, welcoming and optimistic atmosphere has left a lasting impression that I hope to carry with me for life. Secondary school is an important step and I hope every girl enjoys their time here in Scoil Mhuire as much as I have!
Message from our Deputy Head Girl
Scoil Mhuire is truly a place of safety, knowledge, and growth, where each student is challenged to meet their own potential as academics and as individuals. There really is something here for everyone – whether it be sports, arts, debating, music – and new clubs are always welcome if you feel like starting something else! My self confidence and esteem have grown massively over my time at Scoil Mhuire from taking part in activities such as Athrú, Student Council and Irish Debating. Never be afraid to take that first step to show up – you never know where it will lead you! We are all pushed to meet our own unique capabilities and to achieve our goals inside and outside of the classroom. Not surprising when something we hear from Ms Maher at every assembly is “Try your best, that’s all we can ask for and that’s all that you can do.” Starting in any secondary school is daunting, but this is made so much easier by the support and guidance of
Ms Maher, the staff, Athrú, Senior Prefects and every member of the Scoil Mhuire community. You will never forget your
days in Scoil Mhuire, make sure to treasure each one!
