Great Support for Petition lodged to Objection of Proposed Windfarm in Mushera

Yesterday an objection was lodged with Cork County Council to the continued use of an 80 Mtr. Meteorological Mast on Mushera Mountain. This of course is paving the way for a wind farm on Mushera. There were over 200 Signatures attached to the Objection……yes, that is correct…..OVER 200 SIGNATURES. What is even more gratifying is that the Communities from Ballinagree, Aubane, Kilcorney, Millstreet and the Surrounding Area plus further afield came together to achieve this.

Many Thanks to Everyone for the great showing of Support.

Those that worked so hard under difficult circumstances are to be congratulated on their achievement. Keep up the good work.

Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn gofundme page

Just a reminder, Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn have set up a gofundme page, as they haven’t been able to do their usual fund raising in the last year, so far they have raised €550 and wish to thank the people who have donated.  Also, don’t forget they have a competition on their Facebook Page for some lovely prizes sponsored by Herlihy Centra, and O’Keeffe’s Supervalu.

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.

Easter Competition Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Association

Millstreet Primary Schools ‘Easter Nature Hunt’ Competition is open to all local Primary Schools, closing date Friday 2nd April 2021.

The children need to take photos of themselves with all the items to prove they have completed the Hunt, and send them into the Parents Assn’s Facebook page or email address, then completed entries will be entered into a draw on Saturday, for some lovely Goodies, just in time for Easter.  It means you don’t have to go rushing out to do this, just get your entry in by next Friday 2nd April evening to get into the draw.

Virtual St Patrick’s Day Parade from 12 Noon

Millstreet Parents Association would like to wish everyone a Happy St Patrick’s Day.

Thank you so much to the Primary School’s children, they have shared their wonderful talents and good wishes with us, for our Virtual St Patrick’s Day Parade 2021.  The parade will premiere on Zoom at noon, then it will be posted on the Parents Association Facebook page to view and share to friends and family around the world.
If you would like to join our premiere screening of the  Virtual Parade,  please join the Zoom Link below @ 12 noon.
Meeting ID: 868 3368 5255
Passcode: 113069

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.
