School of the Year 2023

On Wednesday 7th June, 5th and 6th classes travelled to O’Reilly Hall in UCD for the Our World Irish Aid award national final.  The children picked up two awards on the day including the top prize: School of the Year. This was an amazing achievement considering over 400 schools entered this competition. Throughout the day, the children were interviewed for various media outlets and posed for professional photographs – it was a memorable experience for them all.

In the winning video, entitled ‘Bite Size Global Goals’, the boys and girls in 5th and 6th class tell the story of the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development, and the work of Irish Aid in an easy-to-understand manner. The children also set out a range of things we can all do to make the world a better place, contributing towards equality for all.

The full awards ceremony is at the following link: (Scroll through the recording…first award at 39:30, the children present their project at 57:50, the announcement of overall award is at 1:24:25) https://youtu.be/M1quZpJnIyg

First Holy Communion 2023

Congratulations to Daniel, Mary, Tom, Lauren and Clara who received their First Holy Communion recently. The children did their families and teachers proud on the day. Thanks to Ms. Reilly for all her work to make it such a special day for the children; to Fr Sean for the lovely ceremony; and Sean Deely and the choir for the beautiful music and singing.


Bike Week 2023

Elaine and Donal from Cavan Sports Partnership put our students through their paces today as part of the cycling safety programme for Bike Week. The multi-sports programme continues through the month of May with athletics, volleyball and tug of war!

Classroom/corridor upgrades

We recently replaced fluorescent light fittings in the main corridor and junior room with LED fittings. This was funded by the SSE Renewables Community Benefit Fund (Corneen Community Fund). This project will reduce our electricity costs but more importantly have a positive impact on our environment!


World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day early in St. Mogue’s this year! Well done to all the children (and teachers!) who dressed up as characters from books on February 2nd. All of the costumes were excellent and showed fabulous creativity. ‘Buddy reading’ took place in the hall where the older children read to the younger children and listened to their reading.

Basketball coaching

Our basketball coach, Riccardo, began a 6-week coaching initiative for all classes in the school on Jan 6th. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn the basic skills and rules of basketball from an experienced player and coach who plays with Cavan Lakers.

We have a packed schedule of events for the rest of the school year as part of our Active School initiative including basketball, football, swimming, athletics and creative dance.
