Literacy Week Launch

Thank you to our Junior Librarians who informed us at Assembly of all the exciting events taking place next week for Literacy Week.

On Monday, 4th of March, we have a visit from local author Declan Carville. Declan is author of a number of titles including: The Fairy Glen, A Day to Remember at the Giant’s Causeway and Valentine O’ Byrne Irish Dancer.

As part of the “Author Visit” there will be a book signing in school on Monday and an opportunity for everyone to buy a book and to have it signed. Three titles will be available for sale: The Magic Harp, Billy, where have all your friends gone?  and Nelly Fandango. The oldest in families received a sheet with additional information on these titles. The cost / book is £5.

Parents may accompany children to book signings at the times indicated below, otherwise please place money in an envelope with the name of the book you wish to purchase clearly indicated.

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.

We are looking for dancers, singers, musicians, comedians…. from all classes, for our first ever “St. Mary’s Got Talent, Show“! It promises to be a great afternoon of entertainment… indeed if early indications are anything to go by we will have to start at 9.10 am as soon as the morning bell rings, to fit in all the acts signed up!

It’s being organised by our Student Council who are busy, making posters, and signing up acts, from individuals, groups and classes. So any budding entertainers, if you haven’t already signed up, get in touch with your Student Council Representatives.

All those taking part please note, you have until Wednesday, to have your act polished and ready for performance. If you intend using a sound track, please speak to your teacher before Wednesday.

All classes are invited to watch, entrance is £1/pupil, with all money raised  going towards school funds.

St Mary’s whole school Sports Day took place on Wednesday. We were blessed with magnificent weather and the children enjoyed a full day of activities. A huge thanks to SPAR Mullaghbawn, who again sponsored packs for every child in the school. This is an extremely generous act and is much appreciated by everyone associated with the school. Thanks also to Mrs McKeown for providing the music and to the P7 pupils who operated the ice cream stand. It was a busy day and all of the children went home with a big smile on their face.
