World Book Day 2020!

To mark World Book Day we are encouraging every child to bring their favourite books to school share personal reading choices and recommendations with their classmates. Each child will be given a book token for a free book which can be redeemed in Waterstones or at the School Book Fair next week.

We are delighted that local author John Farrelly will visit classes tomorrow to talk about becoming an author and introduce his latest release “Vikings”

Pupils who wish to dress as a character from a book are very welcome to do so, but it is entirely OPTIONAL and there is no charge for this non-uniform event.

Safer Internet Day 2020

Monday 10th February,

@ 7.00 pm

St. Mary’s Primary School

To celebrate Safer Internet Day 2020, we would like to invite all Parents / Guardians to this free workshop where you will learn about:

* Internet Browser security*

*Safe searching*

*Internet filters*

*Social networking*


*”Hot” websites that may cause concern*

This year’s theme is:

‘Safer Internet Day: Free to be me – exploring identity online.’  

So we are strongly recommending all Parents / Guardians to come along Monday night to explore ways in which we can help our young people to manage their online identity.

We are confident you will find the workshop very useful and informative.

Changing the Narrative

We are proud to be hosting the screening of 5 short films created to celebrate the role of women in South Armagh. The screenings will be led by the 24 local women, PRONI and the Nerve Centre in partnership with the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council.

Also on display will be the artwork created by our P5 pupils to tell the story of the Old Irish Goat.

We look forward to welcoming to our celebration of film making and artwork which begins at 7pm in St Mary’s Primary School, Mullaghbawn.
