Bluebell Lane Santa Experience

P1B had a brilliant day at the Bluebell Lane Santa Experience.  We listened to stories read by Mrs Claus, met some of Santa’s elves, had hot chocolate and marshmallows, got a ride in Santa’s very special sleigh and we all got a present from Santa.  Thanks to Sharon and Padraig for a very memorable experience and we are already looking forward to returning next year!

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas

From all in P1B

St. Vincent de Paul- KS2 classes: P5, P5/6, P6 and P7 have also been collecting for St. Vincent de Paul and we will be purchasing gift vouchers for shops such as O’ Neill’s.  The young people who receive these vouchers as their Christmas Presents, will then be able to choose sport’s wear of their choice.  We hope also to have these ready to hand over on Thursday. We have asked each KS 2 child to make a small donation from their own money towards this worthy cause.

We will be closing at 11.30 on Friday, for our Christmas Holidays for a well- deserved rest for pupils and staff alike.

A big thank you to all our Parents and Friends of St. Mary’s for your support over what has been a busy term and in advance for your support at our many events this week. We hope you enjoy each and every performance and that they bring the true meaning of Christmas to life for everyone. 

A very Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year to all, from the Pupils and Staff of St. Mary’s.

All the names of those who returned their sponsor cards were put into a raffle and 2 draws made, the lucky families were the Kellys and O’ Callaghans (Nursery pupil), each family received a gift voucher for Smyth’s Toys.

An additional raffle was held for all those who raised around £50 and over, the lucky winners were the Ferris Family.

One P7 pupil who overall raised the highest amount, well in excess of  £100, was acknowledged for her superb effort.

Amazing work everyone.
