Best Wishes Mullaghbawn Ladies

St Mary’s PS wishes the best of luck to the Mullaghbawn Senior Ladies’ team who take part in the Armagh Intermediate County Final this Saturday. Pictured are some of our P7’s who made posters to wish the team luck.

A special mention to staff members Miss Niamh Murphy, Mrs Sara Grant & Miss Aoife Tierney, as well as the numerous past pupils on the team. The success of the senior team helps to inspire the younger generations and participation numbers for girls’ football in our school and club are increasing every year.

We encourage as many pupils and families as possible to support the team in the final. It is against Killeavy this Saturday afternoon @2pm in the Athletic Grounds. Good luck!

Keychain Krew Proceeds

With the P7 class departing the school earlier this week, this also signalled the conclusion of their Young Enterprise venture; Keychain Krew. Thanks to the support of our school community, as well as learning lots about the different aspects of running a successful business, the class also made a tasty profit too!

When all costs were deducted, there was in the region of £500 profit. The children decided against splitting the full profit amongst themselves. Instead, deciding to split £200 amongst the year group; receiving £5 each towards the cost of their recent school trip. The children then opted to give £100 back to school funds and also very generously donate £200 (+£50 Gift Aid) towards UNICEF’S drive to bring vaccines to the parts of the world, much less fortunate than ourselves here in Ireland, who are struggling to vaccinate their most vulnerable people and healthcare workers.

Amazingly, this donation will help to transport approximately 8,900 vaccines to countries such as Nepal; who our school shares a very special connection with, due to the Connecting Classrooms project with Jhapa Model English School in Damak.

Thanks again to our school community for enabling P7 to make this donation and play their part in helping the global fight against the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Please note that keychains ordered by pupils within classes who are currently isolating or pupils who will not be in school before the end of the school year, have been kept aside and will be given to them on their return to school in the new term.


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.
