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.

 

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.
