Everyone in St Mary’s Primary School wishes the Mullaghbawn senior team good luck in the county final this Sunday. With a large number of past pupils involved, the school community is behind you all the way!
Many of the current pupils are making the journey to Armagh to cheer the team on and some members of the P7 year group will actually take to the field itself at half-time, to play a St Peter’s select. Good luck to all of the girls and boys involved!
The after-school Gardening Club had their end-of-year party last Wednesday. It was a party with a difference, as the children used fruit and veg from the school garden to cook the treats. There was soup, salad sandwiches, rhubarb crumble, carrot cake and much more.
It was also a sad occasion, however, as it was Alison’s last week with the club. Unfortunately the funding for Ring of Gullion’s Landscape Partnership has not been renewed and they will have to cease their involvement with the school garden this summer. Everyone wishes to thank Alison and also Abby for all of their hard work over the past two years. A lot has been achieved and you have left a lasting legacy in St Mary’s. Best wishes for the future!
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.
