Millstreet Community School Parents’ Advisory Committee is raising money for the Computer Room Refurbishment. The current Computer Room is outdated and the PCs need to be replaced. We hope to replace PCs with Chromebooks and create learning pods as per the plan above. Microsoft Office 365 across the school. Teachers and students are now collaborating in the digital space using cloud technology. The proposed new layout of the room will provide us with a space where students can collaborate with one another in groups during class periods. Their work will then be available to them on the cloud for future consultation and for revision purposes. Help us to realise this vision and future proof our school!

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
Shrove Tuesday and don’t we all love the pancakes. The custom is as old as the hill behind the house and is greeted with glee every time. Like everything else in the kitchen the job of making them gets easier all the time and the pancake today can be so varied. Gone are the days when you shook a bit of sugar on them and rolled them up. First of all, the mix. The old ritual of making the batter by beating flour, eggs and milk is gone. The mix can now be bought in powder form, mix with milk and pour. Or they can even be bought made, stacks of them ready to be warmed and add your own flavouring, sweet or savory. Either way the humble crepe was always with us and is here to stay.
In a way I suppose it acts as the last laugh before we immerse ourselves in the penance of Lent. Tomorrow Ash Wednesday is one of the only two days of Fast and Abstinence that we have left in the Church Calendar year, the other is Good Friday. I have often wondered how having fish instead of meat could be called a penance. I love fish and with the variety of it that is available today it’s a treat. In ways it has passed out meat, even in name. All the best places refer to it now as seafood, which elevates it to a very lofty status. It wasn’t like that long ago when the choice of fish for Lent was confined to salted hake or ling. It came to town heavily salted, dried and in the shape of the whole fish flattened out, like you’d see a sheepskin . Shops displayed it hanging outside the door, regardless of wind or weather and cut it to the required amount for the customer. Wednesday and Fridays were the fast days all through Lent so hake was in great demand with some people buying the whole piece rather than bit by bit. But even then many people relished this fish, because it was cheap, portions were big and there was a great feeling of reiche (plenty) about it. It had to be steeped in water overnight, sometimes changing the water a few times to get the extra salt removed. Then into the pot and boiled. It was turned into a feast when dressed with oceans of creamy buttery white sauce with loads of onions, and flowery spuds to crown it.
Keeping Your Gut Healthy For Overall Well Being Capabu Health Food Shop, Millstreet, Co. Cork
Did you ever notice that when your gut is healthy, your overall health and vitality improves? And when you eat the wrong food you feel awful? We have too much choice these days and we can lose track of ourselves with processed foods that destroy our gut health. The good news is that you are in charge of what you eat and your food choices are in your own hands. And in Ireland, we have wonderful food choices that are really healthy and increase our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. As the wise person said “Food is Medicine” – or not!
In this one hour talk you will learn:
• Which foods cause inflammation and illness in the body and which foods help it.
• How when we absorb our food fully, it dictates how well we are nourished.
• How taking a break from food can have a great healing effect.
• The new science of food and gut health.
