St. Vincent De Paul Appeal

St. Vincent De Paul Appeal

Every year in Scoil Carmel, we take a proactive approach to giving back to those in need at Christmas by collecting food and goodies for the SVP hampers. In light of Covid-19 restrictions this year, the SVP can't accept boxes and containers of food. Instead, they are suggesting that people can make a small donation through the blue envelopes sent home this week. Members of the SVP will be outside the school on the mornings of Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th December 2020 to collect any envelopes that are kindly sent in. Thank you in advance for your contributions, no matter how small. The money will be collected and distributed to families in the locality in need this Christmas.

Carmel Murphy’s 50 Years

Carmel Murphy’s 50 Years

Today marked the start of the summer holidays in Scoil Carmel, but it also marked the end of an era for a local lady named Carmel Murphy. Over the past 50 years, Carmel has been bringing and collecting kids from Scoil Carmel, including her own children who are all past pupils of the school. This afternoon she collected her final student from the school, her granddaughter Edel who finished 2nd Class today. Edel spent 1st and 2nd Class in Room 16, being taught by Ms. Keating. In fitting end to Carmel’s 50 years, she collected her granddaughter from Room 16, the very classroom in which her eldest daughter Marian started out in many years ago! She is pictured above with her children and grandchildren this afternoon.
