All 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 :)

Today 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 involved!

  • 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!
