June 2nd last was a great day of celebration for Bishop Murphy Memorial School as we received the following awards:
- Digital School of Distinction
- Green Flag for Energy
- Discover Primary Science and Maths Excellence Award
- Junior Entrepreneur Award
It was a fabulous day as the photographs attest to. The flags were raised by our youngest student Oriola, by Marceli and by Kuba. Parents and local members of the community flocked to the school to join in the celebrations. After Mr O’Donoghue’s speech, there was a very special surprise in store for our students. An ice-cream van took centre stage on our yard to everyones delight. Each boy had their very own ice cream. For the adults, some sandwiches and light refreshments were the order of the day in the staffroom.
It was a wonderful day of celebration and reflection upon the school year. What a fantastic achievement and well done to everyone for the outstanding work that went into each award!
We are already looking forward to many more days of success like this in the future!
