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.

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.
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.

All available now from www.samandsue.com and coming soon to Wordsworth Millstreet just in time for Christmas!
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.

Outdoor 6th Class Graduation
We were delighted to welcome back this wonderful group of girls to give them the send off from Presentation N.S. they truly deserve. It was a privilege watching these girls blossom from timid Junior Infants to confident and independent young ladies.
Ria Buckley and Hannah Keane were due to travel to Lourdes with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust (IPT) on Easter Sunday. However due to the Covid19 situation the trip was cancelled. The girls raised €2,367.50 and they have donated the full amount to the Irish Pilgrimage Trust to support their ongoing work.
The girls would like to thank their parents, families, friends, local community, and everyone who helped to make the quiz and bake sale possible. Furthermore, they would like to thank all the local businesses for their tremendous support and generosity in donating prizes and refreshments.
They would also like to express their gratitude to all those that sponsored them.
Finally a very special thank you to the teachers and staff of Millstreet Community School who were so generous with their time especially, John Magee, Jennifer O’Donoghue, Mary Randles, Denise O’Leary and Marion Buckley. [read more …] “Irish Pilgrimage Trust”
St. Brendans N.S., Rathcoole are delighted with the news this week that they have been awarded their 4th Green Flag for Sustainable Travel.
The school has been working for the past two years towards this award, but unfortunately their final event had to be cancelled when schools closed. Instead, pupils from Rathcoole got on their bikes or went on a hike over the past few weeks and headed out to photograph their picturesque “2km Zone” nestled between the foothills of Mushera and the banks of the Blackwater.
Here is the beautiful video they submitted to the Green Schools “Hidden Places” project:
The team at Green-Schools headquarters were very impressed with the application, and extend their thanks to everyone in the school. The Green-Schools committee and the whole school community deserve a huge amount of credit for their efforts – well done on your 4th Green Flag!

The pupils and staff in St. Brendan’s N.S. Rathcoole took part in Active Home Week last week. They completed the Toilet Roll Challenge. It was a lovely way to motivate each other to get active and to unite our pupils and staff during this time. Have a look at what they got up to in the video below:
