We held a design competition which encouraged children to design a poster incorporating a healthy living motto. Congratulations to Kiva who designed, what I’m sure everyone would agree, is a perfect Active Motto for our school to follow!
We use our WOW WALL to recognize children’s achievements both within school and also outside of school! This wall is an excellent way of encouraging both physical and mental well-being in our pupils!
Congratulations to the children from Ms Atkinson’s room who took part in the FAI five-a-side tournament in Gortakeegan on Tuesday 2nd and Thursday 4th April. Both teams played brilliantly and had great fun on the day.
A huge thank you to Peter and Ewan for volunteering their time to coach both teams in preparation for the day.
Congratulations to Eva, Isobel and Grace who took part in the All-Ireland Variety Show in Traboolgan, County Cork on Sunday 24th March 2019. The girls took home numerous trophies and came first place overall as part of the ‘Born to Perform’ stage school.
On Sunday 10th March 2019, all roads led to Donaghmoyne as our annual 5K Walk/Run took place. We would like to say a huge thank you to our Parent’s Association for their efforts in organising the race – it was a huge success and raised some very much needed funds for our school!
Congratulations to all of the winners listed below!
Best of luck to students Isobel and Grace who will take part in auditions for Ireland’s Got Talent as part of the dance group Hiphopical this weekend. The show will air on Saturday 23rd of February at 7.30pm on Virgin Media One.
We are all very proud and we can’t wait to see you both perform on tv!
Our Parent’s Association have taken on the task of organising this weekly event in Donaghmoyne in 2019. This is the first year St. Michael’s National School and the people of Donaghmoyne have taken part in this initiative.
The first weekly event took place on Tuesday 15th January with over fifty people turning up on the day. The campaign will take place for eight weeks, occurring every Tuesday at 7pm. This is a great opportunity for people in this rural area to meet socially, while being active at the same time.
On the 10th of December, teachers completed a ‘Mini Me Yoga’ Foundation course with Natalie Boyle. We received lots of ideas for teaching children how to engage with yoga in a fun and active, but meaningful way. We found this course an excellent resource for allowing us the chance to acknowledge each individual child and help them develop a positive self-image. This was another step towards helping increase the overall mental health and well-being of both pupils and teachers as part of our Health Promoting Schools Campaign.
Well done to the Donaghmoyne under 12 girls football team who played during half-time at the Donaghmoyne ladies Ulster Final against Glenfinn on Saturday 3rd November 2018. A special word of congratulations to the seven girls from St. Michael’s National School who had the opportunity to play.
Congratulations to the children who won the Conor Mc Skeane Shield in September 2018. Well done on your fantastic efforts! It is wonderful to see our school competing in this very special and worthwhile annual event.
