Congratulations to our 12 winners from P7, who took part in a recent Art Competition to celebrate the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Thank you to the Confucius Institute at the University of Ulster for organising and sponsoring prizes, each winner received a book token for Waterstones and had their artwork made into a poster. Missing from the photos is Sean Ferris, but his peers ensured his prize was collected and his work was included in the pictures!

Classes were especially delighted to receive the much coveted Panda Mascots of 2022 Olympics. They look forward to having many adventures at St Mary’s!!!

P5/6 web cam with their Polish Friends

P5/6 communicated with boys and girls from Poland via live webcam this morning! It was so exciting for us!
We shared our Christmas traditions from our countries. 
We really enjoyed hearing about how Santa visits Polish homes twice in December. Lucky boys and girls! He comes on the 6th December and leaves a small present underneath each pillow and then he comes back on the 24th December with a ‘Special Present’ which he leaves under the Christmas tree.
 
 But the icing on the cake is:
The 12 courses for Christmas Dinner! Yum!
