 We are delighted to receive this Humanitarian School Award from GOAL, as a result of our recent fundraiser and our efforts to highlight the work of the charity. David Leach, Head of Communications recently visited our 6th year assembly to talk to the students about GOAL's tireless work to reduce world hunger and poverty.  Class 2.7 and Ms Caffrey raised funds by performing a cake sale and the entire student body donated money for a recent non-uniform day, which was highly successful.  Over €1,600 was raised for the charity.

Fr. Peter McVerry visiting MCS on Tuesday - 28th November

posted 26 Nov 2017, 14:15 by Rowan Averill

Fr. Peter McVerry of the Peter McVerry Trust will be visiting Malahide Community School. He has been invited by one of our 6th Year Politics and Society Students (Stephen Wogan) as part of his Citizenship Project on the topic of Housing and Homelessness. This talk will take place in the Library during Period 2 on Tuesday the 28th of November. 

Fr Peter McVerry started working with young people in Dublin’s north inner city way back in 1974. It was here that he saw first-hand the key issues of homelessness and deprivation – going on to set up his first small hostel in 1979 specifically designed to provide accommodation for homeless boys between the ages of 12 and 16.

Fr McVerry founded what would become the Peter McVerry Trust in 1983 while working in Ballymun. Since then, the charity has developed from a three-bedroom flat in Ballymun to what it is today.
Fr. McVerry gave an electrifying and informative talk on the work he does with the homeless in the north inner city. 

Stephen and Malahide Community School are extremely grateful to Fr. McVerry for taking time out of his extremely busy schedule to give this brilliant talk to our students and giving us a first hand insight into homeless in Dublin in the 21st Century.

5th Year LCVP-RNLI Presentation

posted 8 Nov 2017, 11:37 by cora tighe



As part of their LCVP programme, the 5th Year LCVP class recently enjoyed an excellent presentation by the local Education Officers with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). During this very informative and interactive talk, students were advised of the dangers at sea and at the beach. Students also had the opportunity to learn about the work that volunteers with the RNLI do and learn about the various lifeboat stations around the island of Ireland. The class and Ms. Foley would like to thank the Education Officers for giving up their time to come visit us and look forward to selling RNLI Christmas cards in the school in the coming weeks to raise much needed funds for this wonderful organisation.
