Designed to Move

Over the last 6 weeks Primary 3/4 have enjoyed taking part in the Designed to Move program with Burns Soccer School.  The children have really enhanced their fundamental skills over the last number weeks.  We extend our gratitude to Burns Soccer school and their Coach for their hard work with the children.

At the recent Armagh Cumman na mBunscol AGM, St Mary’s was presented with a commemorative plaque to recognise the good work completed in relation to the promotion of Gaelic Games during the 2017-18 school year.

St Mary’s is one of only five primary schools in the county to hold the Level 3 award and hope to make strides towards Level 4 over the course of this academic year.

Well done everyone!

Good Luck Mullaghbawn CLG

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!

Cycling Proficiency Scheme

Following a tremendous amount of hard work in both practical and theory lessons this term, P7 pupils have been awarded their certificates for completing the Cycling Proficiency Scheme. Although there has been a great improvement over the course of the scheme, the children fully understand that this has not made them experts or ensure that they will be exempt from danger. They must take great care every time they get on their bikes.

Congratulations to all of the children on their success. Cycling is a fun way to stay fit and healthy!

  • Primary 5 girls were placed 1st
  • Primary 5 boys were placed 3rd
  • Primary 6 girls (team 1) were placed 2nd
  • Primary 6 boys (team 1) were placed 2nd

The members of these teams were presented with their medals at assembly on Friday. Pupils who missed assembly because they were either absent or attending the Nursery Graduation will receive their medals from their class teacher.

Well done everyone!

Pictured is the winner of the Mullaghbawn CLG 5K medal design competition. Well done!

Thanks to Anne and Tracy from the club for organising the competition and providing the hoodie as a prize. The ladies commentated on how difficult it was to pick out a winning entry from such a strong field.

We hope that that the event goes well again this summer and that there is a big turn out on the day.
