We also extend a Good Luck to those who have moved on to the next chapter in their lives, especially last year’s Leaving Cert class.

Believe in yourselves and always strive to achieve your best.

Head Girl Welcome Address – Suzanne Conneely

img_0517This year is a special year in Scoil Mhuire, primarily because of the fact that you have now got the most important assembly front row in history. As you know Scoil Mhuire’s ranking for next year lies in our hands – we have the ability to promote, from the all too well known, 34th place to much higher up the ranks.

I would like to give a warm welcome to all of the new first years.  It won’t be long before you are sitting in the front row because, trust me, time flies when you’re having fun, as was illustrated with the crazy dancing in the central area during the European Week of Sport.

As every motivational page on Instagram would say, ‘Don’t count the days, make the days count’, and it is easy to make the days count in Scoil Mhuire. Each day presents itself with a new opportunity for each of us to shine.

Scoil Mhuire has it all – no matter what your aims and aspirations are, we have it here. Mrs Donnellan, our principal, the teachers, each and everyone of them of the highest calibre. Along with the emphasis on ‘individual silent study’, really, to succeed all you need to do is to follow the structure already in place.

Of course, I cant forget to mention the leaving cert queue at the canteen. Which has already been implicated by the use of masking tape as early as the first week!

To conclude this welcome address, unfortunately I can’t play Wuthering Heights here and now, but music will be played in the central area throughout the year to keep the positive vibes alive and flourishing.
I hope you all have a fantastic year and enjoy every moment of it.

Also, a big shoutout to Mr Quinn on being blackmailed into giving me the role as head girl. I hope I do you proud 😉
