The school was delighted to be notified of the team results from Cross Country last week. Amazingly, five teams were placed in the top three of their various race categories.
- Primary 4 boys were placed 1st
- Primary 5 girls were placed 1st
- Primary 5 boys were placed 3rd
- Primary 6 girls (team 1) were placed 2nd
- Primary 6 boys (team 1) were placed 2nd
The members of these teams were presented with their medals at assembly on Friday. Pupils who missed assembly because they were either absent or attending the Nursery Graduation will receive their medals from their class teacher.
Well done everyone!
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.
A huge thanks to St Mary’s PS parents Karen and Frank Daly of “The Academy” for coming into St Mary’s today and facilitating a health and nutrition workshop for the P4 and P6 classes. Pupils learned about healthy eating habits and Karen even showed them how to cook her tasty banana pancakes. Meanwhile, Frank gave the children a good workout, as they completed a mini-bootcamp in the playground. It was a great afternoon for all of the pupils involved.
Thanks again to Karen and Frank, for giving up the time from their busy schedule to make it happen. Healthy Living is one of our Eco Schools topics and we continue to promote healthy eating and lifestyle habits. Every little helps!
There will be further workshops taking place for other classes before the end of the term.
Pupils from P4-P7 had a super day in Kilbroney for the 2018 Cross Country event. All participants gave their all and completed the tough course.
We will have to wait for notification of the results of the team events, however five St Mary’s pupils had individual medals back home yesterday for finishing in the top 6 (a first, two seconds, a third and a fourth). As the number of participants goes up each year, this is a remarkable achievement and cannot be underestimated.
Well done to all the runners on the day and indeed to all pupils from P4-P7 pupils in St Mary’s who have trained hard during the month of May. Thanks also to all parents who attended the event for their support and assistance with proceedings. We will update further whenever we receive the full results.
