P6/7 have been learning about the Stations of the Cross and last week visited St Mary’s Church to complete some research as to what each of the 14 Station represents. They made some sketches whilst in the Chapel and these are put together in the video linked below as a reflection for everyone on this Good Friday, as we know many will not be able to visit the Church. We hope you enjoy and wish everyone a peaceful and happy Easter.
Congratulations to our Nursery children for jumping back into school life with ease. It is a credit to these very young children that they have adapted so well to their long awaited return to the classroom, such a demonstration of resilience. 🌟🌟 We are so proud of you all. Enjoy our St Patrick’s Day video. Have a super St Patrick’s Day.
We were blown away by the work carried out for our recent celebration of Catholic School’s Week and had to share a selection from our KS2 Classes. There was such a high level of participation that it was almost impossible to pick out samples for the video attached below.
This week we marked the beginning of Spring with St Brigid’s Day, we all hope for brighter days ahead… but the fantastic work of our boys and girls should swell everyone’s heart in our school community with PRIDE. Well done boys and girls… YOU ARE AMAZING!!!✨👏
It is planned that First Holy Communion will take place on Saturday, 22nd May in St. Mary’s Church, Mullaghbawn. First Penance would normally take place during Lent, however until we know if and when the current restrictions are to be lifted we cannot arrange a date for this. We will update you as soon as the situation changes and we have more information.
Today is St. Brigid’s Day, the 1st of February and usually some of our classes would visit the Shrine at Faughart, to mark the occasion. Today instead our virtual classes will have activities related to St Brigid: listening to stories associated with her life, looking at pictures from the Shrine and Faughart Graveyard, making crosses etc. We hope everyone will get involved!
Some events happening today to mark the occasion:
Mass is being celebrated from the Shrine at Faughart @11 am, it will be broadcast live via the Faughart Parish Facebook page.
2. Also at 11 am, The ArmaghRhymerswill be presenting the story of St Brigid through song, dance and craft by hosting a free virtual show as part of the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Ireland, St Brigid’s Day celebration event. The event will be live streamed on their website to attend click on the link below (no sign up/download etc required).

It directs you to very useful web pages and suggests software which will help your child. It has a particularly useful section on dyslexia. To access the page you should copy the link below into the Google chrome browser.
As we conclude our celebration of Catholic Schools’ Week we are asked to reflect on being a “Community of Hope”. Today we have been focusing on the positives in our lives and what we are all looking forward to: seeing family and friends, returning to school and our classes, enjoying games in the school yard and learning in our classrooms.
Thank you to everyone for the great participation we have had this week in our celebration, a lot of hard work and effort went into the activities completed. We will collect samples of all the work and share them with you soon, as a celebration of our fantastic pupils and families.

Join us for Day 4 of our celebration of Catholic Schools’ Week when we reflect on being a “Community of Resilience”. How do we cope as individuals, how do we reach out for help and how do we help each other, when times are tough?
