“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” : Nelson Mandela
Here in Scoil Mhuire, our aim is to provide a quality education and ensure each student has every opportunity to achieve to their full potential. We believe that every student should be given the opportunity to a quality holistic education in a happy, caring, secure and challenging environment. As a student it is not about being the best but rather about trying your best, and above all, thoroughly enjoying school life and the learning of new things.
There are many support groups in Scoil Mhuire that guarantee a smooth transition from primary school to secondary school, Like the Athrú group. This is a group of 5th year students, chosen to act as mentors to the first years. The Athrú students help to add a warm, friendly welcoming environment that awaits all new students in the school. Our senior prefects continue this support network. Each form class is assigned a senior prefect who acts as a role-model and a person to always help in times of need. These girls work closely with our teachers and members of staff to provide advice and assistance to help create a healthy positive environment in the school.
There are also many other groups in Scoil Mhuire that aim not only to support all students, but to develop self-confidence and personal skills. We are given every opportunity to be the best that we can be in a friendly but challenging learning environment, not only academically but in all aspects of school life. The dedicated staff of Scoil Mhuire ensures that every student has the supplies to pursue their own individual interests and talents. Wherever your interests lie in football, camogie, the school choir, the traditional music group, the gardening club, English, Irish, French and German Debating, the student newspaper and many more, every student is catered for.
Albert Einstein once said, “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” Every day we are taught how to be better, kinder, more caring people. We are taught life skills that will stand with us forever and above all-else we are taught how to be the best that we can be. In our past six years in Scoil Mhuire we have received not only a first-class education, but also the self-confidence, self-belief and motivation that we will need to conquer all the challenges that we will face in our futures.
