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.
Today Primary 3/4 visited Bluebell Lane Glamping site as part of our Eco Schools project. In 2016 pupils from St Mary’s helped to plant some of the 20,000 trees that are situated around the site. Our class took a trip back to see how they have grown over time.
We measured the height and circumference and found out more about the many different types of trees found in the woodland.
We then discovered some of the different plant life in our flower and plant hunt. Primary 3/4 were very lucky today to see small frogs and dragon flies in the pond area. We extend our thanks to Padraig Carragher for his time today, the children throughly enjoyed the experience!
This Friday, 25th of May we are having our Annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic, lunch. So, if you know any well behaved Teddy Bears who would like to come to school for the day please bring them along. We are expecting good weather so make sure all Teddies and owners are suitably protected from the sun with a sun hat and sun-cream please!
Well done to the P3, P3/4 & P4 pupils, who along with their P7 leaders, helped prepare and sow seeds in our new wild flower garden this afternoon. The location of the new garden area was decided at a recent Eco Committee meeting and the seeds were provided by the “Grow Wild” group.
All of the classes involved are based close to the area and they will monitor it regularly to determine if there is an increase in wildlife over the coming weeks and months. Pupils will make also assemble bug hotels to help attract more minibeasts.
