MCS Computer Room Refurbishment

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  The current Computer Room is outdated and the PCs need to be replaced.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!

Keeping Your Gut Healthy For Overall Well Being


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.

Please join us at Capabu Health Food Shop in Millstreet
Date: Thursday, February 27, 2020, 6-7 pm
Speaker: Aidan O Sullivan.

Speeding Cameras are coming to Millstreet from next Monday!

From 6am next Monday the February 17th 2020, the Gardaí are rolling out new go safe speed van locations. Millstreet is now included in this and the road concerned is from The Square up to the top of Drishane Hill (see the map below). The reason it has been included seems to be that there has recently been one serious and two minor accidents on that stretch of road (R583). It’s not a big change because it has been for good reason a favourite spot for the Gardaí to check for speeding. The message now would seem to be that if people are consistently speeding and accidents are a problem on a road, the speed vans will arrive. It’s a good thing if it gets people to slow down.
