Welcome Back for 2019
We would like to wish all our Staff, Parents and Students a Happy New Year. We are delighted to have our new play area completed. This gives our students the option of playing football or basketball during their breaks.
Music Generation are working on developing our students musical skills over the next few weeks.
Our Art Students continue to work on their Creative Engagement Project with local artists. This project follows on from our very successful project from last year which was displayed at the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals Conference 2018. It is great to see our students trying out a variety of different painting styles e.g. Ancient Chinese Brush Strokes.
Presentation of Basketball and Soccer Jerseys
We would like to thank Limerick Institute of Technology, for their kind donation of Basketball and Soccer Jerseys to our School. It was a good experience for three of our students to be presented by the President of LIT, Dr. Vincent Cunnane, with the jerseys. We hope this will be a valuable partnership for both our school and LIT. A special thanks to one of our parents for organising this initiative. We hope our Basketball and Football teams have a successful year. Mr. Kennedy deserves credit for his hard work coordinating all our Extra-Curricular Activities.
Lip Sync Battles Fundraiser
Well done to everyone for supporting our recent Lip Sync Battles Fundraiser in the South Court Hotel. We would like to extend a big thank you to all the people and companies who sponsored our various acts or took out adverts in our colour programme. It was great to see the local community come out in such large numbers to support our school.
We would also like to thank our Parent Association, Board of Management and all members of our fundraising committee, who worked tirelessly over the last few months.
Funds raised from this event will be used to enhance the educational experience of all our students. We intend to invest in a class set (30) of chromebooks and a portable storage/charging unit. This will expand our already high quality IT provision in our school.
Visit By Limerick Hurlers – All Ireland Champions 2018
We were honoured to welcome six members of the Limerick Hurling Team who won the Liam McCarthy Cup this year. Cian Lynch, Barry Nash, Gearoid Hegarty, Aaron Gillane, Seán Finn and Diarmuid Byrnes gave freely of their time as they shared their experience of the big day and their school memories with our students and staff. We had a great day and our students loved being able to raise the Liam McCarthy Cup themselves.
Mr Giltenane made fabulous personalised hurleys for presentation to the team members.
What a day. Thank you Mr Fitzgerald for organising this occasion for our students.
Student Council 2018-19
It is great to see our Student Council, which is elected by our students, meeting regularly to discuss issues that are of concern to our students. It was a pleasure to have had Mr Donal Fitzgibbon in to provide the group with Leadership Training. We wish this team all the best in the year ahead as they lead the student voice in our school.
School Opening……..Exciting Times Ahead
We are delighted to announce that Mungret Community College opened to our First Year Students on the 29th of August at 9am. It was great to see the scene in our court yard this morning as we welcomed our first students to our school. As can be seen in the photograph above our students were looking their best in their new uniforms. These are very exciting times for our students, their families, our dedicated staff, our interim board of management, LCETB and the local community.
On welcoming the opening of Mungret Community College Cllr. Daniel Butler (Chairperson of the Interim Board) said ‘I would like to acknowledge the great commitment of the board of management to get us to this point. In particular I would like to pay tribute to the diligence of school Principal Liam O’Mahoney ably assisted by Deputy Principal Helen Ryan in delivering a school ready to open within a tight deadline. The education of our community’s children is in great hands.’
Our Board has worked tirelessly over the last six months to ensure that our campus was ready to open on time. We thank each member of the board for their hard work, positive attitude and dedication which has been crucial to the schools development.
We would like to wish our dedicated staff many years of happiness and success in our school and thank them for the efforts they have put into the school prior to its opening. To our incoming students we hope that their expectations and dreams can be realised in a warm, caring, safe and happy environment.
