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 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.

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.

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.

Brock Cup visits St Mary’s

1 2 3 4 5

There were two very special guests of honour at KS2 assembly this morning. The Abbey CBS in Newry recently won the Brock Cup and St Mary’s was very proud to welcome back past pupils, Sean Conlon and Oran McKeown, who starred on the successful team. The boys showcased the cup, posed for photographs (including one with a very proud younger brother) and answered questions, but more importantly they stood as an example of what can be achieved through hard work and determination. They are two great ambassadors for St Mary’s and are living out the school motto of, “Never settle for less than your best!”

Thanks to Oran and Sean, along with their teachers/coaches, Mr Gallagher and Mr Hannon, for making the trip out this morning. It will hopefully help to inspire the next generation of Gaelic footballers in our area.
