St Vincent de Paul Christmas Charity

P6, P6/7 & P7 pupils undertook a special Christmas mission over the course of the past two weeks. They decided to select three ‘gift idea tags’ from the St Vincent de Paul Christmas tree in St Mary’s Church and raise money towards it. The Student council organised a very successful Christmas Jumper Day and the older pupils brought in a little extra from their own savings. A great sum of money was raised and a representative from each class returned the gifts back to the church this morning. There were £50 vouchers for Smyths, The Quays & The Buttercrane.

As well as this, pupils in KS2 (P5, P6, P6/7 & P7) prepared a very special assembly that highlighted the importance of thinking of those less fortunate than ourselves at this time of the year. KS1 were that inspired by the presentation that they then chose St Vincent de Paul as their charity of choice to present the proceeds from their Christmas Concert raffle. Everyone in St Mary’s is very much in the spirit of giving this Christmas and it feels… GREAT!

2017 Sports Day

This week we had the annual Whole School Sports Day. We were blessed with the weather and the children enjoyed a full day of activities. A huge thanks to SPAR Mullaghbawn who again sponsored packs for all of the children in the school. This is an extremely generous act and the pupils loved them. Thanks also to the P7 pupils who operated the ice cream stand. It was a busy day but the children all seemed to go home with a big smile on their face.

Following a very successful day in Kilbroney at the 2017 Cross Country event, St Mary’s PS, Mullaghbawn were this week named as the most successful school and presented with St Bronagh’s Shield. It is a remarkable achievement, given that primary schools from right across the council area of Newry, Mourne and Down take part. It was a whole school effort and everyone can take pride in this wonderful success.
