Christmas at St. Mary’s

Nursery and Foundation Stage have joined with Anne Sullivan International School in Barcelona to work on a project based on pen pals.  We are delighted to have been invited by Cormac Walsh (originally from Mullaghbawn) to participate in this project.  All the children in Nursery, P1 and P2 were excited to watch a video showing the children from the school in Barcelona on their school trip to a sea turtle rescue centre.

Over the past few weeks the children at St. Mary’s have been busy getting ready for Christmas.  These moments have been captured on camera and put together to create a movie.  This movie has been sent to Cormac who was showing it to parents at a Christmas concert in Anne Sullivan International School.

We hope you enjoy watching it as much the children enjoyed making it.

Merry Christmas  to everyone from all in Nursery, P1 and P2.

 

What a busy day !

What a busy day our Nursery gang had today. We welcomed Rotarian Gabriel Byrne and presented him with the shoeboxes kindly donated by parents.  On behalf of the Newry Rotary club, Gabriel expressed his thanks  and appreciation to the school community for our ongoing support.  Then our little stars shone brightly during their nativity performance for a packed out hall, full of proud family members .  They were fantastic and each and everyone of them played their part so well.

St Mary’s Got Talent

St Mary’s pupils certainly proved that there is plenty of talent in our school!

We had comedians, magicians, singers, dancers, musicians, gymnasts and footballers who entertained a very appreciative audience  this morning.

Congratulations to our Student Council who organised a fantastic show and encouraged pupils to display their many talents.

 

 

Grow Your Own Picnic

sunny-picnic

The Nursery were busy bees yesterday at Finnegans Nursery. We had a delightful day filled with fun and happiness outside in the garden. Previously, the children have been planting and growing different vegetables and fruit, and yesterday they finally got to enjoy and eat them with their picnic. We went on a magical walk through the garden and looked at all the different plants and trees. Then we used our mathematical skills and measured each other to see who was the tallest! A truly enjoyable morning!

I hope you enjoy the photos and we would like to thank you for supporting the scheme ‘Grow Your Own Picnic’.
