Christmas Concert Preparations

The school hallways are filled with music and singing this week in Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa. We are very busy preparing for our Christmas Carol Concert on Wednesday December 19th. There is s a great buzz around our school and we are very much in the festive spirit already. 

An evening of Christmas Carols

We are delighted to announce that the children will perform a selection of Christmas Carols on Wednesday December 19th at 7pm in St James’ Church. All welcome to attend on the evening. It promises to be a festive treat for all. Admission is free of charge. 

Maths Competition Winners

Congratulations to our Maths Competition Winners! As part of Maths Week, each class was asked to participate in a Maths through Art competition. Our winners were announced at Assembly this afternoon. Congratulations to Ronan, Kieran, Ava, Sarah, Cian and Faye. Well done to all the boys and girls for their fantastic entries – it was a tough decision to choose a winner in each category. 

MS Readathon

The MS Readathon is ongoing in the school and we would ask parents to remind their children to take home some extra books for the Mid term break. Our  aim is to raise some money for people living with Multiple Sclerosis in Ireland and also that the children would read as many books as possible at home. The MS Readathon will continue until 12th November. Best of luck!!


Junior and senior infants are ready for a Spooky Halloween. We have been very busy practicing our fine motor skills with some spooky Halloween pumpkins. We also made some scary ghosts which we know is Puca in Irish and our scary signs. Enter if you dare!
