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! Green Schools Committee

This is a great opportunity for families to get creative and work as historians!
A time capsule is a historic cache of goods or information, usually intended as a deliberate method of communication with future people, and to help future archaeologists, anthropologists, or historians.
We appreciate that this is a difficult time for our pupils and their families and we are working to provide educational support in a different way than the norm.
With this in mind, we have sourced this comprehensive list of ideas and activities you might consider checking out to support your child during the coming weeks. Please remember that we will get through this together!
Stay safe and healthy!
Staff of Presentation N.S.

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!
