The wonderful work done by Mary Shaw and the 6th class boys collecting Shoeboxes for children in poorer countries received national recognition this morning on TV3. A report on the work of TeamHope Ireland featured pictures of our 6th class pupils with some of the many boxes collected in this school. Once again the generosity of the boys and their families was amazing and if you look at the link below to the TV3 Report you will see that the Shoeboxes go to some very appreciative boys and girls.

Below is a copy of the 2013 Nativity play which has recently been located among the files in Scoil Na Mainistreach. It was to be placed on the old school website but never happened due to technical difficulties. Better late than never! We hope it brings back some memories from not too long ago!
The pupils of Scoil Na Mainistreach today presented a cheque for €3742 to Lucina Russell from MS Readathon. Organised by Mr Mulreid the fundraising event saw boys reading hundreds of books in return for sponsorship from family and friends.
This money, combined with money raised in a cake sale in Mr Markens class last week for the Straight Ahead Charity and the annual 6th Class Jumble Sale yesterday in aid of Celbridge St. Vincent de Paul and Concern, brings the total raised in the Scoil Na Mainistreach in recent weeks to over €6000. Rose Cunnane of Celbridge St. Vincent de Paul accepted the cheque from the 6th classes. Also presented to Rose on the day was a cheque for €833 from Eavan O Keefe (pictured) on behalf of the Celbridge paddlers Canoe Club who organised a Christmas Paddle on the Liffey. Well done to Eavan and all the paddlers for raising such a large amount of money.
Great credit is due to all the boys and their families for making such an effort to help others in need and to the teachers for organising these worthwhile events.
We formed a choir 2-3 weeks ago (we all volunteered). The choir had about 17 boys from 5th and 6th class. We learned Do you Hear what I Hear and Walking in the Air. We rehearsed with the Celbridge Orchestra in the Educate Together School. We went to our local hotel Celbridge Manor on Sunday 6th of December. We performed our 2 songs and had an amazing time. Everybody enjoyed the sing along.
