Mrs Webster held a surprise special assembly to celebrate Mrs Mansfield's retirement and her 38 year career at Scoil Mhuire. She wished her a happy and long retirement. Mrs Mansfield was presented with a travel voucher and a beautiful butterfly themed retirement card which each girl in the school contributed to in the form of individually designed butterflies.
We thanked her for the tremendous contribution she has made to us at Scoil Mhuire Junior school. Six former pupils who are now in 6th year came to share their fond memories at this assembly. There were lots of laughs and funny stories shared. The girls were a wonderful example of what Mrs Mansfield has achieved in her career. They spoke very well and very warmly of their time in Scoil Mhuire. They made the point that Mrs Mansfield during her career not only developed the academic side of her pupils but also was very much interested in developing the whole person. To end the assembly Scoil Mhuire Junior School pupils sang three of her favourite school songs.
We were all delighted to receive some of the celebration cake. A great time was had by all.
