About Scoil Mhuire

Scoil Mhuire is a Catholic school under the Patronage of the Catholic Bishop of Ferns. Scoil Mhuire is situated in the townsland of Ballinamona, Campile, Co. Wexford, on the New Ross – Campile road. It is a central school for the Parish of Sutton’s, which is divided into Horeswood  and Ballykelly Curacies.

In 1979 four schools in the parish amalgamated into Scoil Mhuire. These four schools were Aclare NS, Ballykelly NS, Horeswood NS, and Killesk NS.

Scoil Mhuire has 11 mainstream teachers and four special education teachers. There are five SNA’s in the school. We have a cleaner, caretaker and secretary.

Grandparents Day – Catholic Schools Week 2019

Grandparents Day took place in Scoil Mhuire on Wednesday, January 30th. Third and Fourth Class hosted Grandparents Day in our school this year. The children took part in a prayer service to mark Catholic Schools Week which was led by Fr. O’Leary. They also performed songs and danced for the visiting grandparents. They acted out games from the past and they also presented their grandparents with a little gift. It was a lovely morning and we were delighted to welcome all  Grandparents to our school. Many thanks to Mr. Crowley and Kathleen for all their hard work in preparation for the day.

Rugby Cup Visits

Brendan Holohan from Leinster Rugby visited our school recently with the European Champions Cup and the PRO 14 silverware. Children in the school got to look at the trophies and Brendan told them all about them.

Many thanks to Leinster Rugby for arranging the visit.
