Graduation

Events > 2016-2017 > Term 3





Sixth Class graduated on Tues. June 27th. Father Kennedy celebrated mass while the students read prayers, sang hymns and brought up gifts. Sarah Walsh, Sadhbh O'Connor and Kate O'Connell composed poems about their time in Scoil Mhuire and read them on the night. A hugh thank you to the members of the Parents' Association who served teas in the Parish Centre after mass and to Ella Byrne's mother who made the graduation cake.



It seems like only yesterday,
We came nervously through the door.
Full of wonder of what's ahead,
And ready to learn much more.

Junior Infants was the year,
We were lucky to have Ms. Dunne.
The craic we had, the games we played,
It always was great fun.

Moving on to Senior Infants,
Ms. Bohan was the boss.
She taught us how to use computers,
Before she headed off to Oz.

First Class brought Ms. McKenna,
With all her gardening skills.
Many of her pretty flowers,
Still remain on window-sills.

Moving on to Second Class,
Which was an important year.
Where we made our First Communion,
A memory we hold so dear.

Third Class we moved to the senior side,
And into the bigger yard.
Learning tables and multiplication,
It didn't seem so hard.

Fourth Class was the party year,
Ms. Ní Cheallaigh got engaged.
We threw her a party to celebrate,
She brought us to Crystal Maze.

Fifth Class was a tougher year,
The hardest of them all.
We all enjoyed the cake sale,
In aid of St. Vincent de Paul.

Now we are in our final year,
Ms. Faughnan is who we got.
With Science Fair, Sale of Work,
You name it we did the lot.

As we come to the end,
We think back on the past.
The fun we had the tears we shed,
The friendships we know will last.

When we started here eight years ago,
We were little more than babies.
But thanks to our teachers and Ms. McIvor,
We are leaving as young ladies.

One last thing I would like to say,
Go n-eirí an bóthar leat.
And to all my friends and teachers here,
Go raibh míle maith agat.

When the first day of school finally did arrive
the moment we’d been waiting for all our lives
we learned how to read we learned how to share
and made the best of friends that are very rare

Senior infants started with a blast
it was a lot of fun but went very fast
we learned how to spell and learned how to write
and went to bed early every night

First class was with Ms. O’Toole
we learned to speak Irish “Tá mé ag súil”
I was in the Carol Service that year
we were all amazing without any fear

Second class started with Ms. Dempsey
we learned Irish dancing with Ms. Lee
it changed so quickly to Ms. Dunne
then we prepared to make our communion

Ms. Bohan was our teacher in third
we read lots of stories word by word we went on our tour to Tayto Park
we had a lot of fun and made our mark

Fourth is the year we’ll always remember
the year we lost Nevaeh in November she will always be with us in our hearts and in prayer
we’ll never forget her we’ll always care

Ms. Ní Cheallaigh was our teacher in fifth
a wonderful teacher oh what a gift
as we saw the 6 leave with a tear
we didn’t realise it would be us next year

6 class one of the best
also so tough no time for a rest
and now as we say goodbye
we might shed a tear or even cry
but with all the memories we’ve had and made
all my friends and classmates will never fade

Thank you Scoil Mhuire for a wonderful 8 years
you taught us all we know and got rid of all our fears
I’ll never forget the great time I’ve had
enjoyed it so much I’m really glad!

First through a gate, and then a door,

Into that orange-tiled corridor.
2009 that very first time,
Into Junior Infants we went.
Classrooms 2, 4 and 1
We had such fun,
Playhouses and sandpits was how they year begun…
It followed with a teddy bears picnic, Halloween dress-up,
visiting Santa at the Sale of Work plus more,
The highlight of the year was going to Enrg for our school tour.

Another year on,
Ms Kelly, Ms Bohan, and Ms Coe came along.
We all felt so grown up,
Doing work on Fizzbooks.
New classmates and friends,
I'm sure we will never forget it.

First Class commenced in 2011,
We were a crazy bunch of six and seven.
Staying until three,
A big change for you you and me.

Second Class came on quite fast,
Our Communion year at last!
Learning hymns was a blast,
Memories of that day will forever last.

2013 we began our career in the senior school,
We all thought we were so grown up and cool.
At Tayto Park we all went wild,
I came back a very tired child.

Fourth class soon to appear,
Another quick year.
Vocab and Irish Verbs to learn in sets,
Our minds certainly were put to the test.
Sadly one of our class mates left,
But Nevaeh is a person we will never forget.

2015, our second last year we decided must be,
A year filled with memories.
Growing up was part of the deal,
But mostly that year was a happy wheel.
Stories of 1916 dressup forever to be told,
Our costumes were a sight to behold.

Now Sixth Class has come,
I'm back where I began.
Where do I start? Which memories do I choose?
First I must say something to all of you -
Friendships and classmates, now and in the past,
Are part of our history in this class.
And when we leave friends, our school and past,
We will know we have built bonds that will always last.
