We are very lucky in Scoil Mhuire N.S. to have positive partnerships with parents, organisations and coaches who give their time to help us learn and develop new skills. We are busy with lots of activities, throughout the year.

Gabriel Rangers GAA Club

Cycle Sense

Schull Leisure Centre

We are extremely fortunate to have a 16m swimming pool within walking distance of the school. Pupils from 1st to 6th class benefit from a 6 week block of swimming lessons which links with the aquatics strand of the PE curriculum.

Cork Sports Partnership

The Irish Tug of War Association and Cork Sports Partnership have teamed up to develop a Primary School Tug of War Programme that introduces children to the Sport of Tug of War in a supportive environment. We were lucky to avail of this unique opportunity in Scoil Mhuire NS. 3rd and 4th class received excellent training from Joe (Cork Sports Partnership) and our very own tug of war rope.

Schull Community College

This year we were very lucky that Schull Community College teamed up with Schull Mhuire N.S to offer the 5th class children a chance to experience the brilliant sailing facilities the community college has to offer. The children got to experience first hand what it is like to go out sailing. For many children, it was their fist time sailing. It was a great day out and the all the children enjoyed it with many eager to take up the sport itself.

Kick boxing

Parental involvement

We are very lucky in Scoil Mhuire N.S. that we receive excellent support from the parents and from the parents association. Various parents are involved in promoting physical activity in the school such as coaching the children in football or teaching them kickboxing after school.

Ballydehob Jazz festival dancers

Over the last few years musicians from Ballydehob jazz festival have been coming into the school to give the children a demonstration on jazz music. This year we were very lucky to have some of the musicians and dancers come into the school to teach the children a very popular jazz dance known as swing dancing. The whole school attempted to learn this famous dance and even some of the teachers joined in too! Every body had a great time learning theses moves!

Goleen NS

This year we were very lucky this to be invited to Goleen where we joined up with them to participate in an active mental health day. The day comprised of engaging in fun activities including dancing, stick beating and outdoor circuits. The children really enjoyed it and hopefully it will be a partnership that will continue for the foreseeable future.
