Dublin City Council wants to hear from you!

Dublin City Council are looking for our young people’s opinions in relation to the development of outdoor teen spaces. The survey opens on September 8th and you could be in with a chance of winning a Just Eat voucher just for giving your opinion.

Welcome back to all our students. We are so happy to see you all and we can’t wait to get know all our new 3rd class pupils.

Return to school

We return to school on Tuesday August 31st at 8.50am to 2.30pm.  You can leave your children at either the purple gate in the lane or the green gate on St Helena’s Road.  We ask that children bring their pencil case with them on Monday and this remains in school.  No school bags again this year, as we are still following public health advice on COVID – 19

Congratulations to the 6th class children who will be graduating from St. Malachys MNS this year. You should all be very proud of yourselves after a difficult time of learning from home and adapting to big changes in school. Well done!

We wish you all the best of luck in your new schools, you have bright futures ahead of you and we hope to see you back in St. Malachy’s for a visit soon.

Here is a slideshow of the 6th classes during their time in St. Malachy’s 🙂 Click the link!

Retirement of Ms. Mc Grath, Ms. Mc Cormack, Ms. Burke

In the last week we have had to say goodbye to two legendary figures in our school Ms Burke and Ms McCormack.  We also said goodbye to Ms. Mc Grath in June.
With a nearly combined 120 years service in the school of St Malachys we have been lucky to have three such stalwarts.
Their commitment to the school is illuminated in that all travelled long distances to get to Finglas South each morning.
As well as the current group of the children they have taught many parents, Aunties Uncles, cousins ,friends and even some Grandparents.
Their names are synonymous with St Malachys.
As a staff we have lost three of the most finest colleagues and three of the most finest of people.
Enjoy your retirement ladies you have certainly earned it.
Staff of St Malachys
