Halloween 2021

We had great day on 22nd October 2021 celebrating Halloween in St. Michael’s National School. The children dressed up and each class had a Halloween party. We took part in Trick-or-Treat for Temple Street and raised €170 for this very worthy cause, well done everyone!

We also held a socially-distanced fancy dress parade and fancy dress competition. Congratulations to our winners – Lucas, Calum, Calum, Anna, Saoirse, Tom, Liam and Cassie.

Well done to everyone on an amazing first term! We look forward to seeing you all in November!

Halloween in the Infant Classroom

We have had lots of fun preparing for Halloween this October.

We learned all about Halloween and discussed our Halloween traditions. We also took part in Aistear based around the theme of Halloween.



In art we created these ‘creepy spiders’ as well as mosaic pumpkins.


We were also very lucky to have Oisín in to teach P.E. on our Halloween dress-up day.


We have had a wonderful week, and wish you all a safe and happy Halloween break!


St. Michael’s N.S. are taking part in a Read-A-Thon to raise much needed funds for our school library 📕
All children who return a completed sponsorship card before December 10th 2021 will be entered into a draw for a Smyths Voucher 🥳
We thank you all for your continued support!

Autumn Hedgehogs

Our wonderful infants used toothbrushes to create these beautiful Autumn Hedgehogs. We learned all about hedgehogs and how they are preparing to hibernate for the Winter.

Colouring Competition Winners

Congratulations to Willow and Jamie who won the Fáilte Isteach colouring competition back in June 2021. These two were delighted to receive their wonderful prizes.

Collaborative Art in Ms Atkinson’s Classroom

Have a look at Ms. Atkinson’s class’ collaborative art that they completed on Monday 21st June 2021. It was a fantastic art lesson to finish the year on and it turned out beautifully!

Exciting Week in the Infant Classroom

We have had a very exciting week in the infant classroom!

On Wednesday 16th we were very lucky to have Donaghmoyne coaches Oisín and Michael in to teach the children tag rugby. The boys and girls had great fun and learned lots of new skills. Thank you Oisín and Michael!


On Thursday 17th we spent the morning at Donaghmoyne park. We are so lucky to have such an amazing facility right beside our school!


After our morning at the park we held our Sport’s Day. As we didn’t get the chance to hold a Sport’s Day last year, this was a first for both Junior and Senior Infants. The children had a wonderful day!


We spent plenty of time outside enjoying the sunshine!


We were very lucky on Wednesday 16th June to have a magician come to our school. It was a lovely treat for the boys and girls as we get ready to start our Summer holidays!

Ice Cream at School

We got a lovely surprise today, Friday 18th June, when an ice cream van arrived to our school!

A huge thank you to our Parent’s Association for funding this very special treat for the boys and girls on such a hot Summer’s Day!
