P6 visit to Glasnevin

P6 pupils had a great day visiting Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum in Dublin. Pupils visited the graves of many people who played a significant role in the history of Ireland and they had a hands on workshop to learn about items from World War 1.

The pupils did a fantastic job capturing lots of exciting angles and poses during the tour and it has been difficult to select for the website.


Intergenerational Project


A reminder to those pupils/parents/grandparents, taking part in part in our  Intergenerational Project, that there are 2 sessions organised for next week on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 7 pm here in St. Mary’s. It is only necessary to attend one of the sessions. Please bring along your I-pad if you have one of your own and please download the I Movie App in advance from the App store.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

teddy-bear-wallpapers-1This Friday, 25th of May we are having our Annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic, lunch. So, if you know any well behaved Teddy Bears who would like to come to school for the day please bring them along. We are expecting good weather so make sure all Teddies and owners are suitably protected from the sun with a sun hat and sun-cream please!

Confirmation Early Closing


Everyone please remember we close at 1 o’ clock tomorrow. There will be school dinners as normal. Both Aidan’s and Gary’s buses are running at 1 o’clock, unfortunately Mark has been given an extra bus run, and is unable to facilitate our early closure. Therefore anyone who normally  travels home on Mark’s bus will have to be picked up at the school at 1pm. Please share the word.

We wish all our P7 pupils a lovely evening of celebration with their families and friends.



Damaged school equipment

The new climbing frame in the Nursery is not a public play park facility.  After working so hard to purchase this apparatus it is very disappointing to see that parts of it have been broken already.

The climbing frame should not be used unless there is a staff member present.  The school does not accept responsibility for any accidents that may occur outside of school hours including pick up times.  Any damage to equipment will incur a fine.  Furthermore entering the Nursery garden without permission or staff supervision will be deemed as trespassing.

We ask all parent to respect this matter.

Early Closure


 Please note that to facilitate Confirmation next Wednesday evening, the 23rd of May, we will be closing at 1 pm on that day. At this time we believe the afternoon buses will run at 1 pm, however this may change if our bus drivers are given additional runs by the Education Authority. In the event of this happening Parents may need to make other arrangements. We will inform you as soon as we know for sure.

Thank you for your co-operation
