Netball News

Today our P7 and P6 girls travelled to Newry to play St. Joseph’s Primary School. This is St. Mary’s first competitive Netball match in over 15 years!

The girls have been training hard from January, after school each week and put on a fantastic display in Newry today. Well done girls!

A special mention to Mrs Orlaith Gray (Smyth) a former past pupil and teacher in St. Mary’s who agreed to play and host this event. It is great to see Netball up and going in our area and we look forward to playing St. Joseph’s again next year.

Cross Country

Over the past 3 weeks, pupils from P4-P7 have been practising Cross Country 3 times per week. Collectively, all 4 year groups clocked up 1100km; which is no mean feat! There has been a great improvement across the board, with pupils attempting to beat their times each day. Keeping active remains such an important aspect of our pupils’ daily lives as it helps to bring about a positive impact on their physical and mental health.

All pupils from P4-P7 were presented with certificates to commend them for their efforts over the past 3 weeks. There were also medals for 1st / 2nd / 3rd place in each race. Check out some of the photos from the final races. Well done to each and every pupil who took part!

St Mary’s Girls Win Allianz Mary O’Reilly Shield

Our girls continued their successful Cumann na mBunscol season by picking up the Allianz Mary O’Reilly Shield today. The girls had to dig deep in both games against St Anthony’s Primary School, Craigavon and were thrilled to come out victorious in the Eire Og GAA complex.

This is the inaugural year of the competition in memory of Mary, who was a great advocate of LGFA in Armagh. Our girls demonstrated some of Mary’s fighting spirit by recovering from being eliminated from the cup competition last month, to eventually go on and win the shield final today.

Maith sibh!
