Creative Writing Competition
Congratulations to all pupils who entered the Lucan District Credit Union Primary Schools Creative Writing competition recently. Their joint effort yielded a welcome prize when we were awarded overall winning school in Lucan for the second year in a row, with a prize of €500.00 for the school.
The overall competition winner was Catherine Killard, 5th class who won an iPad and a class trip to Fort Lucan. Highly commended were: Hazel Gogarty, Emily McGrath, Ayesha Quarishi and Rachel White.

Write-a-Book 2017
Well done to all or our pupils in our Fourth classes who entered their books in this competition in association with Dublin West Education Centre. The judges had a difficult task of selecting the winning entries as follows: Hazel Gogarty, Emily Horrigan, Ava Kennedy, Sive Keogh, Ella Larkin, Sorcha McCarthy, Alana McIlreavy, and Ruby Munnelly.

Camogie News
Thanks to Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club who organised an end-of-year camogie blitz for Lucan schools recently. Our 5th and 6th class girls were winners on the night and brought home the long desired for Kelly Cup. Well done girls and teachers Ms O’Connor and Ms Lawlor.

School Musical
Scoil Mhuire GNS took on a new challenge this year and performed a highly entertaining musical to a delighted audience last week. The girls had been preparing for the ‘Sixth Class Musical’ for the past few months and their dedication and hard work truly paid off. Under the guidance of Ms. Faughnan, Ms. Bohan and Ms. Murphy, the children were well rehearsed and performed with enthusiasm and confidence.

The pianist for the performance was Michael Grant, whose astounding skill and experience took the production to another level of professionalism.

In the lead roles, Sophie O’Brien and Jennifer Waters brought awe and laughter to the audience through their captivating performances. They were very well supported by a large cast including Lauren Strong, Ruth Goodall, Sarah Tavey, Rachel Cunningham and Roisin O’Sullivan. I think it is fair to say that a lot of budding talent was discovered in the preparation and performance of this wonderful musical.
