Leinster Schools Championships

        On Day 2 of the Leinster Championships we saw Jenna G. compete in the Junior Long Jump.  She jumped very well but unfortunately did not get through to the All Irelands. Jennifer N. got 2nd in the U16 Long Jump with a great jump of 4.50, not a pb for her but still a great jump.

        Leah M. and Ella T. both competed in the Inter High Jump.  Leah jumped 140m, not her pb but did very well.  Ella won the High Jump competition with a brilliant jump of 160m!  This was a pb for Ella, and this got her through to the All Ireland School Championships being held in Tullamore on 2nd June. 

        Also, Sarah D. got 2nd in the Senior Hammer with a pb of 33m. Both Ella and Sarah go through to the All Ireland Championships! Well done girls!

Preparations for Museum Exhibition in Germany

        On the 22nd April five Transition Year students (Nadine C., Shauna D., Roisin F., Laura M., and Aisling M.) accompanied by two teachers (Mr. John Reidy and Mr. Colin Stobie) travelled to Recklinghausen in Germany to participate in the “Erasmus+” project. The “Erasmus+” project is designed and funded by the European Union and aims to bring students together from different European countries to share their knowledge on a mutual topic of interest. The students met up with counterparts from a Polish school, (Vi Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace Im. A. Mickiewicza w Krakowie) as well as students from Recklinghausen’s local school (Hittorf Gymnasium).

Scoil Mhuire Trim  

        Through this current project, students learn how to create and show-case an exhibition in a museum. The exhibition is titled: “The Knowledge Lab”. The project has a two-year duration culminating in a public exhibition in March 2019 in LWL Industrie Museum in Dortmund, Germany.

        Throughout the week in Germany, the students engaged in a multitude of activities to attain an insight into creating museum exhibits as well as receiving invaluable guidance from Polish and German museum curators. The project has provided the students with a great opportunity to experience cooperation with European schools as well as affording them the chance to acquire valuable skills, training, and cultural experiences. Various cities were visited over the week including Münster and Essen so that students could gain inspiration for their exhibition. Our students were warmly received by their German and Polish counterparts, and their work ethic and friendliness were commended by all. The students from Scoil Mhuire will continue the project on into 5th year, and a further five students will be travelling to Krakow, Poland in September to finalise the exhibition.


        Students from Scoil Mhuire involved in the “Erasmus+” Project are: Eimear B., Nadine C., Rachell C., Shauna D., Leah D., Leanne D., Alana F., Roisin F., Anna H., Katie J., Lauren K., Hannah L., Laura M., Aisling M., Laura O., Ava T., Ciara T., and Emily J. W.. The “Erasmus+” project in Scoil Mhuire is led in by Mr. Domo Kajic.

TRANSITION YEAR MUSICAL 2018

        Transition Year students staged ‘Dancing Queen’, a tribute to the musical ‘Mamma Mia’ for four nights from 20th – 23rd March. A packed house each night was treated to a memorable show of Abba songs and great choreography which showcased the girl’s high level of performance.  A lot of hard work resulted in the Scoil Mhuire stage being transformed into a Greek Island, the setting of the musical. The show was Scoil Mhuire’s eight musical and was directed by Martina Dixon and Josie O’Toole.

Scoil Mhuire Choir - London Trip

        Scoil Mhuire Choir enjoyed a wonderful trip to the West End London on March 10th to see the “Lion King” in the historic Lyceum Theatre. For many it was a first-time experience. So taken were the students by the artistry, the sheer energy of the choreography, and the breath-taking spectacle of costume and colour, they were planning their next trip to London’s West End as they left the theatre.

        Great credit is due to the panel of players and their management team for their dedication and hard work in the run up to the game.

Irish debating

      On the 6th December both the junior and senior Irish debating teams competed successfully in the 2nd round of Gaellinn debating competitions which were held in Athboy.
     The Junior team debated passionately for the motion that ‘Téimid that fóir ag ceiliúradh na Nollag’. The Elf on the Shelf even made an appearance as well as a rendition of The Grinch. The girls performed superbly and are through to the Regional Finals.
     The Senior Team also put in a stellar performance debating on the topic of freedom of speech. Their motion was ‘ba cheart deireadh a char le cuntas Twitter Donald Trump’ and Hannah, Robin and Ellen spoke passionately on this topic. The senior team have also made it through to the Regional Finals which will be held in early January.

Erasmus+ coming to Trim

        Since September 2017, a group of our Transition Year students with the support of their teachers Mr. Domo Kajic and Mr. John Reidy, are participating with students and museum curators from Germany and Poland in a two years European Union Erasmus+ project, based on instilling young people with a greater awareness and appreciation of the function of museums and in particular, the pivotal role of a curator.

Hittorf Gymnasium Recklinghausen and LWL Museum Dortmund from Germany, VI Liceum Ogόlnoksztalcace im.A. Mickiewicza and Museum of Municipal Engineering Krakow from Poland are the other schools and museums the girls will be working with.

Over the two years, the project involves regular meetings and discussions with their European colleagues via the web, and coming together in week long workshops in the 3 countries. Following completion of the project in 2019, all the participating students will put on an exhibition of their work in LWL Museum in Dortmund.

Scoil Mhuire will be hosting the second workshop from the 11th to the 18th February 2018 in our school.

The name of our Transition Years project is “Knowledge Lab” and explores the current topics of real/fake news and facts.

Scoil Mhuire Choir

       Well done to our school choir who was commended in the recent Sligo International Festival against stiff opposition from St. Patrick’s Cathedral Choir, Dublin and Presentation College Kilkenny. The choir sang two challenging pieces. “Da Pacem” by Canadian composer Jeff Enns and the flirtatious Renaissance madrigal “My Bonny Lass She Smileth” by Thomas Morley. The choir is busy preparing for its annual carol- service on Tuesday December 19 th in St. Patrick’s Church, Trim at 8pm. The girls will be joined this year by 150 first years, who are looking forward to this very special evening. Proceeds for the evening will go to the Church Restoration Fund.

       On Friday 20th October 2017 Scoil Mhuire’s German Debating Team achieved their first victory this year by defeating Colaiste Pobaill Setanta Phibblestown in Round 1 of the National German Debating Competition.

      Scoil Mhuire’s team debated against the motion “Mixed schools provide better preparation for life than Girls’ or Boys’ schools” or “ Koedukative Schulen bereiten besser auf das Leben vor als reine Mädchen- oder Jungenschulen”. The team consisted of 5th year students Megan O. (Captain), Andrea M., Ciara B. and Robin K. and was mentored by Miss O’Callaghan and Mr Kajic.

      A big thanks is owed to all the students who turned up to support the team. It was a brilliant performance and we look forward to Round 2, which is scheduled to happen before Christmas.
