Mount St. Michael Claremorris News – December 2019

Mount St. Michael Secondary School Claremorris News December 2019

It has been a busy last term at Mount St. Michael and there has been a theme of giving and hope evident throughout the months of November and December in our school.

On Monday the 9th of December our Big and Little Sisters went on a bonding trip bowling in Castlebar. This trip is a change to reinforce the friendship between the big and little sisters. Everyone had a great time and the bonds were definitely strengthened.

The students in Mount St. Michael have truly embraced the spirit of Christmas. Charitable collections were organised and generously supported for Mayo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, COPE Galway, The Annual HOPE shoebox appeal, Bronntanas Mayo, Selling of Roses for Autism, selling Leukemia badges to support young people with Leukemia in our local area, The Laudato Tree Project, which strives for climate justice by trying to combat Desertification in Africa through the Great Wall project and a bake sale to raise funds for the Irish Pilgrimage Lourdes trip.

Students learned about how to be sustainable this Christmas and collected plastic water bottles and created a Christmas tree to show student how much plastic is used everyday and gave tips on how to have a “greener” Christmas.

Our TY students also went to the Nursing home on Monday the 16th of December to bring cheer and sing Christmas songs to the residents.

As the term draws to a close we wish all our staff, students, parents and wider community members a very joyous Christmas.
