The Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Association met with both primary schools today with the proceeds of fundraising efforts from the school year 2018/2019.
€1800 was presented to Frank O’Connor Principal Scoil Mhuire BNS. These funds have been used to purchase STEM equipment and materials and a portion was put towards the important purchase of a defibrillator. The defibrillator has been installed in the school yard of Scoil Mhuire BNS and will be operational shortly. Further communication to come on this.
€1800 was also presented to Joan O’Mahony Principal Presentation National School, seen here with Mrs Twomey’s 1st class pupils. These funds are allocated towards spending for this school year. Recent use of MPA funds has been purchase of Aistear materials and basketball equipment.
The MPA wish to thanks all parents and local businesses who support the many fundraising efforts throughout each school year.
Parents are invited to show their support at the upcoming AGM next Monday 14th Oct 8.30pm.

Claire Twomey – Secretary

I wonder if anyone can help with the following question we received today, likely about Drishane Convent School:
“Hello, a cousin of mine studied at a residential post primary college in or near Millstreet in the early 1950’s. It might have been called Drishane Castle. What qualifications might the pupils have got in Domestic Science or kindred subjects? I would be grateful for any information to put in her obituary that will be needed any day.
Many thanks, Mary”
If you know, please leave a comment below, or send an email to <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and we will forward the answers.
