Retirement:  Ms. Mary Garvey, our Deputy Principal, will be retiring from teaching on January 8th.  Mary has worked in Scoil Treasa since 1979 and has been Deputy Principal for the past 10 years.  We will all miss her greatly in the school.  Mary’s contribution to education in Firhouse for 37 years has been immense. Her kind and quiet way of working with all children has been an example to us all  On a personal note, Mary has been a huge support to me as Principal over the past ten years.  We wish her health and happiness in the years ahead as she takes on a new phase of her life.
