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.
Tomorrow the Nursery will perform their Nativity show for the local Alzehimers support group. We ask that all children take their costume back into school tomorrow.
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.
As with previous years we are supporting Newry Rotary Clubs Annual Shoebox appeal. Many thanks to those who have returned their boxes already, if you wish to join in, shoeboxes can be collected in the Nursery . The final day to return your shoebox is this Thursday – 13th. Thanks

We had a lot of aspiring firefighters on the way home. Special thanks to Brian Kirwan, Ben’s Dad who is stationed at the Newry fire department, we appreciate your help in facilitating the visit.
