AMALGAMATION OF Scoil Mhuire and Abbey Boys' National Schools (NS) into one new co-educational primary school by 1st September, 2017: The Patron of Scoil Mhuire is Bishop Kevin Doran, of the Elphin Diocese. In October 2015, the Diocese of Elphin conducted a ballot of parents of children of both Scoil Mhuire National School (NS) and the Abbey Boys' NS. Seventy-four per cent of families attending the schools used thier ballot. 84% of parents voted in favour of the proposal to 're-organise the Abbey NS and Scoil Mhuire NS as one single co-educational school, operating on the two existing sites'. In response to this, the Diocese of Elphin has recently set up a Project Management Committee as a vehicle "to plan for and ensure the most effective amalgamation of the Abbey Boys' National School and Scoil Mhuire National School as one new co-educational primary school , by 1st September, 2017." This is to be achieved through effective collaboration between management, staffs, students, parents, trustees and the local community of the two existing schools.
Excellent sessions for the children and parents on internet safety including cyber bullying. Valuable information for parents click here.
