Message from the Head & Deputy Head Girl - Andrea Mc Bride & Hannah Guy - Academic Year 2018-2019

        Here in Scoil Mhuire, our aim is to ensure each student has every opportunity to achieve their full potential. We believe in providing a quality holistic education in a happy, caring, and 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.
 Scoil Mhuire Trim           These positive attributes are encouraged from the very first day with the help of our Athrú girls. This is a group of 5th year students, chosen to act as mentors to the first years. Both of us were part of this wonderful initiative and witnessed first-hand the positive impact it has on our incoming first years. By helping each new young lady in our school find their own feet and settle in, they are soon as ease in the new, hectic environment that is secondary school.

        Throughout the school years in Scoil Mhuire, 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. They work diligently with our teachers and members of staff to ensure that every student is working to the best of their ability.

                  “Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education”
                             
                                                     Dr Martin Luther King Jr

        Scoil Mhuire is a place where every young woman has the chance to prosper and become her best-self.  We are given every opportunity to be the best we can be, not just academically but in all aspects of 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, from football to camogie, from the school choir to the traditional music group, from the gardening club to the student newspaper, every student is catered for.

        A wise man, Martin Luther King once said, “Intelligence plus character that is the goal of true education” and in Scoil Mhuire academia is not the only area in which we are learned. Every day we are taught how to be better, kinder, more caring people. We are taught life skills that will stand to us forever and above all-else we are taught how to be our best selves. Surrounded by like-minded girls we strive to enjoy every moment here in our school as we are so fortunate to have the opportunity to educate ourselves in a holistic manner. Secondary school is a special time in everyone’s life and we hope that every young woman enjoys their journey in Scoil Mhuire as much as we have!

Scoil Mhuire Trim YSI Project

        A YSI class in Scoil Mhuire Trim have been working on a project about the senior citizens in their community. Their project is called, “Respect not Neglect” as they want to decrease loneliness experienced by elderly people and erase stereotypes around teenagers being disrespectful to the elderly.

      In order to do this, they’ve started weekly visits to local nursing homes in their community, participating in activities such as arts and crafts while getting to know the residents. This has positively impacted residents as well as carers.

        The girls have organised a night in their school which will include entertainment and refreshments. They have invited both nursing homes and Prosper Meath, in order to appreciate the senior citizens in their community.

        Visiting the nursing homes has made the girls feel thankful for the elderly people in their lives. It has also made them more aware about the loneliness suffered by many of these people. The girls look forward to continuing their visits and holding the night in their school.

Transition Year Knitting Project

      Transition Year students from Scoil Mhuire Trim participated in the "Knitting our Community Together" project. This involved each student knitting a square of colourful wool, which were later sewn together to wrap around benches, trees and poles. They also helped "Yarn Bomb" Trim by creating dream catchers. They did this by weaving wool around a large hoop. This project involved all students working together to learn new skills and formed part of a well-being programme. The students found it a very relaxing activity and good for the mental health as it reduced screen time immensely and brought people together.

       The "Knitting our Community Together" Project was organised by Trim Youth Club. Many clubs, schools and knitting groups participated, with the objective of brighten up the community, while raising awareness for each group in a positive and supportive way.

It will be targeted at people who suffer from anxiety, OCD and other memory or stress related illnesses. Maeve also hopes this product will prove useful to the general public. Maeve has developed a functional bespoke wood and glass pendent and necklace with the help of Gerry Ruane (Burren Jewellery) using a Human Centered Design approach. Maeve also produced various 3D printed prototypes in the development process.
