Craft Fair: My thanks to the Parents' Association for the wonderful Craft Fair on Sunday. It was a lovely occasion with a great atmosphere. It would be difficult to list all involved in case I left somebody out, but a tremendous amount of work went into the preparation, and we are deeply grateful for this. Galway Bay FM and St Vincent de Paul say thanks: Una Molloy from Galway Bay FM newsroom has expressed her thanks on behalf of the radio station and society of St Vincent de Paul for the massive response from the children of Maree school to the food appeal for Galway's needy people. Well done to all. Cyber Bullying Talk: Fifth and sixth classes received a talk on Tuesday, December 17th from a guest speaker, Brendan Smith, on cyber bullying. Brendan's talk was most interesting and informative. He gave the children a great history of communication and also an insight into the way technology is advancing. Among his strong messages was the danger of putting up comments etc on social media. He also emphasised then eed to tell if you are being bullied, and he gave the reassurance that the Gardaó and authorities now have more power than ever before to track down anonymous cyber bullies. Nativity Play: The Nativity Play with second class is on Thursday, December 19th at 7.30pm in the Church. All welcome. I would like to thank the staff, the BOM and you, the parents, for all your support during 2013, and to wish you and your children a very happy and peaceful Christmas. D. Cleary

Past pupil Ailish O'Reilly stars for Galway Seniors.
2013-09-17

TÌÁimid an-bhródi̼il ar fad aisti. Our photo shows Ailish with the current camogie crop (many of whom will wear the maroon jersey at some stage or other) during her visit on the Friday before the big game. {gallery}ailish_oreilly_stars_for_galway_seniors{/gallery} When Ailish was in Senior Infants her school day finished at 1.30pm but her minder used to bring her back to school at 2.30pm for camogie training days with the 'big' girls. Is it any wonder that this young lady was one of the key players for Galway Seniors all through this years championship? Ailish brought huge honours to the school in her time in Maree, the most noteworthy being the Mini Sevens County football title in 2006 as well as the County 9-a-side Camogie title in the same year. In what has to be the proudest day in the sporting history of Maree National School, our past pupil from the class of 2006, Ailish O'Reilly, played a leading role for Galway Senior Camogie team in their All Ireland victory over Kilkenny on Sunday September 15th.

 

School Notice - 11 September 2013
2013-09-11

Welcome: As the school year beings I would like to extend a warm welcome to everybody. We welcome in particular our new Junior Infants and also Kian Keavey who has joined 3rd class. Safety: We request that parents use the Community Centre car park when dropping off/collecting children. The children may then use the side entrance path to the school. Please also encourage your child to exercise caution in the car park particularly when cars are reversing etc. Under no circumstances should anybody park on the yellow lines in front of the school gate to drop children off. It is also very dangerous to park across the road from the school and to allow a child to cross the road. Our primary concern is the safety of your child. All-Ireland Camogie Final: Best of luck to our past pupil Ailish O'Reilly who lines out in the forwards for Galway Senior Camogie team on Sunday 15th. Ailish captained our school team to victory in 2006 and has multiple honours for camogie, basketball and Gaelic football. Go n-éirí go geal lei agus le foirneann na Gaillimhe.

(Walk on Wednesday) days drivers should exercise particular caution on the approaches to the school; cyclists should always wear helmets; and cyclists should remain in single file and not two abreast.

Fionn Duffy Takes Gold for Maree NS
2013-03-12

Fionn Duffy took a gold medal, becoming the Under 12 Irish Schools Champion in 50 metre breaststroke, at the Irish Minor Schools Championships in Leisureland on Sunday, touching only two hundredths of a second ahead of the Belfast swimmer in silver position. Earlier, Fionn had been pipped to the butterfly gold by one tenth of a second. {gallery}fionn_swimming_medal_13{/gallery} This is Maree NS's first national schools swimming title. The event featured regional provincial qualifiers from all over the island, and competition was fierce. Fionn swims with Galway Swimming Club, and already at 12 years of age is up at 5am three mornings a week, and does five training sessions a week. He is the third of the Duffy boys, all former Maree NS pupils, to take up swimming. Cian, now 18 and doing Leaving Certificate in Yeats College, represented Ireland for the first time as a senior international in November 2012, at the European Short Course Championships in Chartres, France. Cian currently holds over 20 Irish and Connacht swimming records, and is the Galway Sports Star for swimming in 2013. Oisín (16), who is in fifth year in Calasanctius, is no slouch in the pool either, and joined Cian on the Galway Swimming Club relay team that broke the Connacht 200m freestyle record in December 2012. So if you are coming home late at 5am someday, and you see the lights on in the Duffy residence, just remember the dedication that competitive swimming requires. As you fall into bed, the Duffys are getting up!

Derek and Marie, representing Maree National School have just won Strictly Come Dancing in Maree Community Centre. We are extremely proud of them. They had to fight off some very strong competition from the other contestants but they held their nerve to win it out on the night. My thanks to all our supporters who came out in great numbers to vote for Derek and Marie. The whole event was another outstanding success for the organizers who put in a massive amount of work in preparation. Congrats to them and to all who took part. {gallery}strictly_come_dancing_2013{/gallery}

Strictly Come Dancing
2013-01-31

We wish Marie Ni Bhroin and Derek Glynn, representing Maree National school, the very best of luck on Saturday night in Strictly Come Dancing. The event takes place at 7.30pm in Maree Community Centre. It has been a sell-out show since word went out that Derek was participating. Fair play to him for managing to bringing Marie up to his excellent standards.

 

School Notice - 24 January 2013
2013-01-24

Music in the Classroom: 5th & 6th class enjoyed a recent trip to Leisureland in Galway for a performance by the RTE Concert Orchestra. Our thanks to the Parents' Association for the funds, which enabled us to subsidise the cost of the outing. All funds raised by the Parents' Association are used to benefit the children in various ways throughout the year. We appreciate the support of you, the parents, for all those events. Strictly Come Dancing: Sat 2nd Feb - 7.30pm, Maree Community Centre. With a little over a week left to go to the big night, I am inviting all parents to show their support for Marie and Derek who represent Maree School. If you are not attending on the night you can still help them to get over the line by sending in €2 per vote to the school. I will gladly vote on your behalf on the night. While we have undoubtedly the two best dancers we are the poorest when it comes to financial support. Please do your bit to save Marie's & Derek's blushes. Recycling: We need to redouble our efforts to become more environmentally aware in the coming months. Our landfill bin has been bursting at the seams in recent months which means we have slipped back considerably on where we were a year ago. The following are some ways you can help: Use a lunchbox if you are not already doing so (this cuts down on foil & paper wrapping); Encourage your child to bring home any uneaten food in his/her lunchbox. Head Lice: We have had problems with head lice recently in three different classrooms. Please ensure that you check regularly and treat if necessary. We have also requested in the past that long hair be tied up as this should help to prevent lice from hopping from one head to the next. Money Found: A small sum of money was found in the community centre car park. Please contact the office.
