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. A word of thanks also to the winning team who very kindly donated their prize money back to our worthy cause. This money will be added to the fund and will be used to purchase an outdoor climbing frame for P1 and P2 children. Many thanks to all those from the club who helped make the night such a success.

Congratulations to Past Pupil, Aislinn who won the South Ulster, String Orchestra, Cup last Friday night at the Education Authority, Music Service, Prize Giving Night. Aislinn began playing the violin when at St. Mary’s through the P5 String’s Project and then continued with the small group lessons offered to all our P6 and P7 Pupils. We are delighted to see how she has built on this and gone on to even greater things! Well done Aislinn from everyone in St. Mary’s.
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.
A few parents and at least one member of staff in this!!
