Dear P4 Parent,
There will be a meeting on Thursday, 25th of October in St. Mary’s Church Mullaghabwn at 7 pm. All P4 Parents are required to attend. There are new arrangements in place for preparation for our P4 pupils to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy communion.
This meeting should take 30 minutes and will provide you with information about the monthly Family Mass and how you in partnership with the school and Parish, can help prepare the children over the coming months. We, along with members of the Parish Council, the P4 teachers look forward to seeing you there on the night.

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!
The Smartie Box Challenge has had an amazing response. Together we have raised£1,176 for school funds. Congratulations to Moya Rafferty P7 winner of the cinema package and to MIA Mc ArdleP2 winner of the games hamper. Thank you to everyone who took part and supported us.
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.
There’s been a great response to the Smartie Box Appeal. So far we have raised £730! Can we make the £1000 target?
Raffle takes place this Friday 15th June.
Make sure your name is in the draw!
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.

All pupils received a letter with instructions to download the App.

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.
