Mandarin Student of the Year

As our International Month draws to a close we would like you to join us in congratulating P5 pupil Elise who was awarded Top Student of the Year in Mandarin Speaking.

Elise was chosen from over 4,000 pupils across Northern Ireland by the Confucius Institute at the University of Ulster, Belfast. This is a great achievement for Elise to be chosen from such a high number of students. Congratulations Elise and we look forward to your continued success in the future.

Elise and her family were invited to attend the special Awards Ceremony where she was presented with her award.

eTwinning Conference

Wishing Mrs Byrne a very safe and successful trip to the Czech Republic where she will participate in an eTwinning Conference with over 200 Foundation teachers from across Europe.

Congratulations Mrs Byrne, who is one of only four teachers, selected from a large number by the British Council to represent the UK at this very prestigious event.

Exciting times ahead for St Mary’s Nursery who will have wonderful experiences working on their eTwinning Project. We look forward to hearing about the conference and your plans for the project.

 

P6 Hillwalking 2019

Weather conditions were perfect for the annual P6 climb of Slieve Gullion. The mountain was very busy with climbers enjoying the good weather and spending time outdoors in our area of outstanding natural beauty.

We met past pupil Moya who recalled her happy memory of climbing Slieve Gullion when she was a P6 pupil in St Mary’s.
