Visit from Santa 2021

We were very lucky on Monday 13th December to have a visit from the one-and-only Santa Claus. The children got to tell Santa what they want for Christmas, and received a beautiful photo and gift.  What a special start to the week!

Thank you to our Parent’s Association for making it all possible!

Ice Cream at School

A visit from the Easter Bunny

We had a very special visitor to our school on the 26th March.. The Easter Bunny! The Easter Bunny brought Easter eggs for all of the children; it was such an exciting end to the school term.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter break!

Graduation 2020… With a Difference!

After over three months apart, the students, parents, families and staff of St. Michael’s National School came together today to show the most amazing display of solidarity and community spirit in saying farewell to their 6th Class students.
Tiernan, Lauren, Jessica and Eimar received one of the most remarkable and memorable send offs St. Michael’s N.S. has ever seen. They were showered with gifts and treats as they stood and waved farewell to all of their peers who came and took part in the parade. What a wonderful way to finish their eight years in primary school.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone, especially the Parents Association and our wonderful staff for making this day possible.
Thank you to all our families who came out in support.

Enjoy a safe and happy Summer holiday everyone. We look forward to seeing you all in September!

Ice-Cream at School!

Have you ever seen such beaming smiles before? Not unless you got an ice cream at school from the Ice Cream Van! It goes without saying from these little faces that everyone enjoyed their surprise! Thank you to the Parents Association for organising and funding this.

Flag Raising Ceremony

There was huge excitement in St. Michael’s National School on Wednesday 19th June 2019 as we came together as a school community to raise three very important and well-deserved flags. Both staff and pupils have worked extremely hard and have shown huge dedication and commitment to achieve a flag for Water Conservation and Preservation, a flag for recognition as a Health Promoting School and also a flag for achieving Active School Status. We had a fantastic day gathering together to mark our success.

On the day we also opened our beautiful new friendship garden. A sincere word of thanks to our parent’s association for making our friendship garden possible – your unending support doesn’t go unnoticed!

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended the Flag Raising Ceremony and who contributed in any way to making the day a memorable one. A special thank you also to our special guests ‘Hiphopical’ for their fantastic dance display and to Drew Wylie from the Monaghan County Team who raised our three flags for us.

Well done to everyone! Our staff and pupils are very proud to be flying the flags for St. Michael’s N.S. Donaghmoyne.

‘Farmyard in your Schoolyard’

On Wednesday 19th June 2019, the pupils in St. Michael’s National School Donaghmoyne, were very fortunate to have some special visitors come to our school. Stephen from ‘Farmyard in your Schoolyard’ came to visit, and brought along an array of farmyard animals. He talked to the boys and girls about the various animals, including goats, chickens, roosters, guinea pigs, rabbits and even Shaun the Sheep! The children loved having the opportunity to learn lots of interesting facts about these animals, as well as having the chance to pet them.

A word of sincere thanks to our Parent’s Association for organising and funding this fantastic event!
