What we Love – Art Exhibition

Herlihy’s Centra in the West End, and the Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn would like to thank the children from the Primary Schools for their Art work.  There is plenty of room for more Art, so its not too late to hand it in and it is definitely worth a visit as the pictures below don’t do the art justice.

Also the Parents Assn would like to remind everyone that the Go Fund Me page is still going and thank everyone who has given money so far.

Herlihy Centra – Art Exhibition

Millstreet Primary Schools’ Parents’ Association have been asked by Herlihy Centra Millstreet, to invite the children from the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. to send in their Art in the form of a A4 painting/colouring picture in the theme of ‘What we love’ with the view of displaying it in the shop and in the windows.

Herlihy’s Centra have been very impressed with the art work that has been displayed in town over the years and would love to exhibit the Primary Schools art, the exhibition ‘What we love’ will open very soon, so please start getting the pictures into Herlihy Centra in the West End ASAP.

For more information go to the Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn Facebook page.

Fundraiser Drive for Millstreet Primary Schools

Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Association, would like to ask people to help in this years fundraising for the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S.

Usually, they have put on Quizzes, Disco’s and Church Gate Collections to help raise money, and after expenses of First Holy Communion and any gifts, the money left over would be divided between the schools.

So, the Parents Association decided to stay safe within the current regulations, and have set up a Go Fund Me page as their main Fundraiser for the year, and hopefully we will be able to have our usual events next year.

Link to the Go Fund Me Page:  Go Fund me Page

Another way to pay is directly into the Assn’s Bank account, details can be got by messaging the Assn directly on their Facebook Page Link for Facebook

Also, the Parents Assn would like to say a ‘Big Thank You’ to all the Children, Principals, Teachers, Parents, Grandparents, Past Pupils, Families, Local Businesses and Friends who have supported the Primary Schools Parents Assn in the past, and anything you can spare would be gratefully received.

In previous years, the money has gone towards STEM equipment, Sports Equipment, New Desks, Novels for the classroom, and a portion was put towards the important purchase of a defibrillator, also a portion went towards installation of hot water in classrooms.  Sadly, with Covid_19, the Parents Assn have been unable to collect any money for the Schools, or put on their usual events, but they have continued to give gifts for the First Holy Communion, and ran for Halloween a Colouring Competition, Fancy Dress Competition plus a safe online Movie Night.  Also, they had fantastic entries for a Pancake Bake Off Competition, and not forgetting the St Patrick’s Day Video (which is still available for viewing on their Facebook page), thank you to all the children who took part.  And another competition is on until Friday 2nd April (See their previous post).

Current Committee, Michaela Donegan (Chair), Sinead Corkery (Secretary), Claire Twomey (Treasurer), Denise Buckley, Tracy Cronin, Kate Kelleher, Caitriona McCarthy, Marie Bourke, Mary Irish-Daniels.  New members are always welcome.

Millstreet Parents Association

The Parents Association for the Millstreet Primary schools has been in touch, so far they have only had 10 children from both schools put in something for their video of ‘What St Patrick’s Day means to you’.  They would like everything to be in by Friday evening if possible to get the video ready for St Patricks Day, details can be found on the original link below, but it would be lovely to show that St Patrick’s Day is still special, even if we can’t have the Parade this year.

Someone has had problems sending in their video/Photo’s, so the Parents Assn are adding their Whatsapp phone number for entries.  Whatsapp 086 6635625, or you can email 

Also any problems sending something in then you can also contact them on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Millstreet-Parents-Association-104178005023702

http://www.millstreet.ie/blog/2021/03/05/what-does-st-patricks-day-mean-to-you

 

What does St Patrick’s Day mean to you?

What does St Patrick’s Day mean to you?  Millstreet Parents Assn has asked the Primary School children that very question.

To some of us it can mean going to St Patrick’s Church for mass, meeting friends and listening to the wonderful music.  It maybe visiting family and going to the St Patrick’s Day Parade.

This year, sadly, we wont be able to do any Parades or go to Mass together, so instead of a Parade etc this year The Millstreet Parents Assn has invited the children from the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. to send in maybe a Photograph or Video of up to 20 seconds of who they want to wish Happy St Patrick’s day to (maybe someone out of the area or abroad they haven’t seen in a long time, or a relation they miss), perhaps play some music, or even have their own mini parade, even if they want to do a picture or Art, a poem, but the idea is for the children to say what St Patrick’s Day means to them.

The Parents Assn need all Photo’s/video’s and art pieces sent in by Friday 12th March 7pm and they will put them together for viewing in our own Primary Schools St Patrick’s virtual Parade on the 17th March.  By sending it in, it is accepted consent has been given to show the clips/art on the Facebook page of The Millstreet Parents Assn and other social media platforms, this way any wishes you want sending to people will be able to seen.

But this will only work if the children take part, so let prove that St Patrick’s Day is still special to everyone.

Millstreet Parents Association Pancake Competition

Millstreet Parents Association would like to thank all the talented children who sent in entries from both the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S.  The children sent in a lot of fantastic pictures of how they like to have their Pancakes, lots of wonderful designs and colours, I am told it made the decision of who the winner was such a hard job.  Here are the pictures, some great talent here I think you’ll agree.

Also if you would like to follow the Millstreet Parents Association on Facebook the link is https://www.facebook.com/Millstreet-Parents-Association-104178005023702

AND THE PANCAKE BAKE OFF WINNER IS….
Michaela Dennehy, Age 8

Congratulations.

Millstreet Parents Association

Millstreet Parents Association has a new page on Facebook for both Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. in Millstreet.  It will be a place where they advertise upcoming fundraising events and communicate with parents and the community.

https://www.facebook.com/Millstreet-Parents-Association-104178005023702

Sadly, the last year the Association hasn’t been able to put on any Quiz, Church Gate Collection or Disco to help with the fundraising, but did hold a Movie night, Halloween colouring competition also gave gifts for the First Holy Communion children.  So hopefully newer and safer ways can be found to fundraise and support the schools.

A new Competition is going up on the Facebook page this week ‘Pancake Bake Off’ for the children of the school’s with a super prize.

Here is a reminder of some of the previous good work the Parents Assn has done in Millstreet.

Millstreet Parent Assn Competition Winners

Millstreet Parents Association sadly couldn’t put on the annual ‘Halloween Disco’ this year, so recently over half term they held a Netflix party where children from the Presentation N.S. & Scoil Mhuire Boy’s N.S. watched a film together from the safety of their own homes, also they held a couple of competition’s, firstly a colouring competition and then a fancy dress competition.  Below are some of the winners.  Thank you to everyone who entered, it was really hard picking the winners and we wish we could have shared all the entries as they were wonderful and scary.  Also thank you to both schools and everyone who helped.

Keep Dogs safe.

Just had a message in:

A man with an occupant in his van was stopped outside our gate asking for directions to St. John’s well. Was inquiring about our dog and how old she was. He was curious as to how she acted as well. We watched as he drove towards Aubane area driving slowly past everyone’s house. A newish silver van with English Reg plates. Very suspicious and let everyone to keep watch of their dogs.

Remember keep an eye out for any Plastic Ties or markings outside your gate, and let anyone know if you see anything on other peoples properties.
