A huge thank you to everyone who attended the quiz in the football club on Friday night. It proved a great nights craic for both children and adults. It was also great to see some past pupils coming back to support St. Mary’s….thanks lads! Money raised on the night and from donations earlier in the week amounted to just over £600.

It was lovely to welcome back past pupils, Matthew, Aine, Julia, Emma and Cormac this week as they completed work experience from their Secondary Schools. It was great to hear about their studies and hopes for the future.We hope you have enjoyed your week with us and that we have at least persuaded a couple of you to think about primary teaching as a career choice! Good luck with your studies and best wishes for the future.
