Our student council have been working very hard over the past month. After discussions with their class, the student councilors brought many fantastic ideas forward.
Firstly, they felt that birthdays weren’t being properly celebrated in St. Michael’s and came up with the idea of purchasing a birthday badge for each class so that people could feel more special on their birthday. They decided to write a letter to our board of management to request money to purchase birthday badges and thankfully, our board of management agreed. Luke and Katelyn travelled to Carrick to purchase the badges and the children are now delighted that they feel a little extra-special on their birthday!
Secondly, the children felt that it was time we brought back our pre-covid Pancake Tuesday tradition. The student council wrote a letter to our Parent’s Association asking if they would be available to come in on Pancake Tuesday to make pancakes for the children. We had a wonderful day and were very grateful to our Parent’s Association for making this happen.
Finally, our student council took a key role during our enrolment evening on 23rd February. They helped the teachers set up on the night and gave tours of our school to parents on the night.
The student council are now working on an Easter Raffle, as well as a collection for Carrickmacross Food Bank. We are very proud of the work that they have put in over the past month, we’ll done everyone!

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!
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.
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.
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!
