Smiles all round at Friday’s Assemblies as ALL these super pupils received a “Pupil of the Week Award” , for lots of different reasons including recognition of work completed during lockdown and since returning to school. Well done everyone!
Our P7 pupils visited the Chapel this afternoon for their Penitential Service, “Builders for God” , in preparation for Confirmation next week. They heard that where there is Peace, Love, Forgiveness and Joy, the Holy Spirit is present.
Thank you to Fr Emlyn for leading us in prayer and best wishes to all our P7 as they prepare for their Confirmation.
Neither lockdown nor COVID have stopped our International Work here at St Mary’s and tomorrow we have 2 classes linking up via a webinar with our Connecting Classrooms Nepalese Partner School, Jhapa Model School Damak.
Over the next number of Tuesday mornings each school will present and answer questions about their school and community. This is part of a wider project where we will share stories and legends from our different cultures and learn more about the stories’ heroes and heroines, villains and gods. Finally we will create a new story where a Nepalese character will feature in an Irish legend! What would happen if the Cailleach Bhearra met the Yeti????
(With the time difference involved we are starting at 9:15 in the morning P6 and P6/7 don’t be late!)
Pictures from our KS2 Assembly last Friday. Well done to all those who were awarded Pupil of the Week. We had a lot of recipients for awards! Some for engagement and going that extra mile in our Lockdown Virtual Classes and others for their attitude and application to work now that we are back in our real life classes.
We will post the Foundation and KS1 pictures tomorrow.

Well done to all the classes involved a great job!
