Sponsored Walk Draw

A huge thank you to everyone who returned sponsor cards following our sponsored walk at Hallowe’en, an amazing total of £1,800 was raised for school funds!

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.

Sports Day

St Mary’s Whole School Sports Day took place in early June. All of our pupils 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. It was a busy day and all of the children went home with a big smile on their face.

Non Uniform Day: Race for Life

St Mary’s Staff are participating in the Race for Life walk on Sunday in Belfast in memory of our treasured V.P.  Mrs Ann Murphy and all those we know who have lost their battle with cancer.   The Race for Life raises much needed funds for Cancer Research in Northern Ireland.  Tomorrow Friday 24th May there will be a non uniform day in school with all proceeds going to this very worthy cause.  Thank you all your support.
