We look forward to hosting pupils and teachers from our “Erasmus+” Partner school, S.D. Savio T. Fiore, in Gravina, Italy this week. They will arrive late Monday night and are staying next door in Ti Chulainn until Friday. They will be with us in school, Tuesday and Wednesday when everyone will get the opportunity to meet and talk with them.
The weather forecast is looking fantastic… and we look forward to proudly showing them around our school, village and local area. We wish them a safe trip and a big “Cead Mile Failte” to St. Mary’s.
Last Friday, Miss Malone, Miss Durinn, Miss Crawley and Miss Mulkerns held a special Assembly to tell everyone about their trip to our partner school in Greece over the mid term break. We heard about harvesting olives and planting a commemorative olive tree in the grounds of our Greek partner school, visiting the archaeological site at Avdera and seeing toys from Ancient Greece, visiting a Mosque and Vistonida Lake and lots more.
A copy of the Powerpoint can be found at the link below, have a look at the slides and see how much you can remember!
In March we welcomed visitors from our Erasmus+ Partner Schools to Mullaghbawn. On the Saturday morning they joined with St. Mary’s staff for training in Internet safety and then spent the rest of their day taking a tour of South Armagh visiting places of interest in the locality like: Ballykeel Dolmen, Killeavy Old Church and Kilnasaggart Stone. On the Monday they visited our classes and in the evening they popped in to listen to the Music Partnership Classes. On the Tuesday they went with our P1 and P2 classes to the Giant’s Liar and in the evening they went to the Comhaltas Session in The Welcome Inn, Forkhill. A busy but enjoyable few days for everyone showcasing St. Mary’s and the stunning locality.
