the pupils and staff would like to wish Ms Dwane the very best of luck
as she finishes with us in Monaleen this Friday. Ms Dwane has
taught junior infants, 5th and most recently 3rd class over the
past year and a half and we're very sorry to see her go. Mr Cahill made
a presentation to her on behalf of all the staff and thanked her for
all her hard work. There was extra cake on offer today as it was also
Ms Dwane's birthday... 21 again :)
On behalf of everybody in Monaleen National School, I wish to express
our sincere best wishes to you all for a happy, peaceful Christmas and a
healthy and prosperous 2015.
With sincere best wishes
Tony Cahill (Principal)

have their ceremonies on Saturday 23rd May. The Enrolment ceremony for all
4 classes will take place on Thursday 16th October in the school
was a very special day at Monaleen NS. We raised our fourth green flag
for Travel. It takes two years to get a flag so today's flag is a
result of a huge amount of work by Ms. Hickey, Ellen O'Sullivan (Green
Schools Travel Officer), the Green Schools Commitee (past and present
pupils) and all the boys and girls & also the staff. Today was a no
uniform day and the boys and girls wore green to mark the occasion. We
were absolutely delighted to have the Mayor of Limerick, Michael
Sheahan, with us today to raise the flag. A huge congrats to everyone

Our 4th Green Flag!
On 12th March, the Green School Committee, were inspected on the work
they have done throughout the year on the theme of “Travel”. The
inspection was very tough but the committee were excellent and did
Monaleen N.S. proud. Everyone on the committee had to wait patiently
for one month before they would hear if they were successful or not. On
29th April, we were informed that we had received our 4th Green flag.
On 28th May, Ms. Hickey and 3 representatives from the Green Schools
Committee went to the Silver Springs Hotel in Cork to collect the flag.
Well Done Everyone!
