Sporting fever gripped the school last week, as the annual netball and football blitzes were held. Pupils from P5, P6 and P7 played out some great matches in both codes. Well done to the winning teams and indeed everyone who took part.

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!

P6 pupils had a great day visiting Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum in Dublin. Pupils visited the graves of many people who played a significant role in the history of Ireland and they had a hands on workshop to learn about items from World War 1.
The pupils did a fantastic job capturing lots of exciting angles and poses during the tour and it has been difficult to select for the website.
