P7- Group 2 Hill Walking

Dear P7 Parent/Guardian,

The weather forecast is looking fine for tomorrow so we will go ahead with the planned hike up Slieve Gullion for our 2nd Group of P7’s.

  • Please wear old clothes, (suitable for walking and scrambling),
  • wear plenty of warm layers,
  • bring a hat and gloves,
  • bring any medication needed (inhalers etc )
  • bring a packed lunch, including water (a treat is allowed).

Boots and a water/wind proof jacket and trousers are provided with a rucksack to pack everything in.

It is a good idea to bring a change of clothes, including dry socks to leave back in school on the off chance they are needed.

We will leave around 9:30 and we will be back for home time as normal at 3:00 pm.

We hope everyone has a great day out, remember it will be much colder on top!!

Miss Mulkerns + Mr Mc Coy


P7 Workshops

P7 have enjoyed two fun-filled workshops this week. On Wednesday, we welcomed Cormac & Rachel from “HIP Pyschology” who delivered a interactive presentation on how to developing resilience / dealing with difficult situations. It was a big hit and the children have added some new startegies to their toolkits for the years ahead. On Thursday, Cathy from Young Enterprise came in to launch the Business Beginnings project for this year. Again, it was great fun and the class will now get to work on planning their own business. Watch this space!

Violin Lessons

Violin lessons resume tomorrow Tuesday, 14th of September for those P6 and P7  pupils who were involved last year. 

Please have your child bring their instrument and music folder into school. Lessons will take place in the Assembly Hall, starting at 9:15 am.

Best wishes to Clare our strings’ tutor and all the children taking part, we look forward to the sweet sound of violins filling our corridors on a Tuesday morning again!

Best Wishes to the Class of 2021

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 who finished their time at St Mary’s this afternoon. Some pupils gathered in class with others joining in online via Collaborate from home to enjoy one final assembly together. A few highlights from their P7 year are in the video & images below.

A huge well done to the winners of the Master Pius Tierney Cup and Mrs Anne Murphy Cup. These two esteemed trophies were awarded to two very deserving candidates pictured below. We hope that all of the outgoing P7 pupils have a great summer and we wish them well for September and the start of the next stage of their education in Post Primary School. Good luck from everyone in St Mary’s Mullaghbawn!

P7 Conclude SPAR Sports Week

Primary 7 brought St Mary’s Sports Week to a conclusion this afternoon with their Sports Day. Well done to all of the children who took part and enjoyed a fun afternoon in the sun. Sincere thanks to McCreesh’s SPAR Mullaghbawn for their generous sponsorship of goody-bags for every pupil in the school once again this year. This treat was very much appreciated by all of the children!

It has been a busy week with each year group having their own individual Sports Day over the past 4 days. The music has been pumping and the field a hive of activity all week. A special mention to the P7 pupils who worked in teams to support the class teachers with setting up and organising the different events each day.
