Reminder for P7 Parents

Dear P7 Parent / Guardian,

A reminder of the schedule for our P7 Leavers.

The Leavers’ Mass will be held on Wednesday, June 22nd in St Mary’s Church, Mullaghbawn. Please note the change of start time for the Mass; it will now begin @6.30pm. This is to accommodate Parents who have been asked to attend an information evening in one of the Post-Primary Schools.

The end-of-year awards and certificates will be presented at the end of Mass. Owing to the rising incidence rate of Covid-19 within the school and local community, there will be no reception back in the school assembly hall, the school buildings are off limits for large gatherings.

Traditionally, P7 pupils would have finished school on the day of the Leavers’ Mass, however, as a group of pupils now have their Introductory Meetings in their new school on Wednesday, June 22nd, the last day for P7 will be Thursday, 23rd June.

May we take this opportunity to congratulate your child as they complete their time at St Mary’s and wish them well as they move on to their new schools.

Miss Mulkerns +Mr Mc Coy

Congratulations Confirmation Class of 2022

Congratulations to the P7 pupils who made their Confirmation in St Mary’s Church last week. The children prepared diligently and their participation ensured that we had two very special ceremonies.

Thanks to Fr Emlyn for celebrating the ceremonies and to Annette for preparing the church. Another big thank you to Mrs McCann and our school choir for adding so much to the occasions. Thanks also to Claire for her work with our musicians in the lead up to Confirmation and indeed throughout the school year.

Important Information for all Parents.

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Our Primary 7 classes are making their Confirmation next week, this Special Ceremony will be take place on Tuesday 17th of May and Thursday 19th of May.  On these dates  the school will close at 2pm for all pupils.  There will be a restricted after school facility available for those children who in exceptional circumstances cannot be collected at 2pm and need to travel home on the 3pm bus.  Best wishes to the children and their families on this very important occasion, May God Bless them on their Confirmation day and always.

☘☘Green Day- Funds Raised☘☘

We are delighted to report that we raised a WHOPPING £768.50 through our recent Green Day. Thank you to everyone who made a donation whether big or small. The money has been passed to Fr Emlyn to combine with that, which has been raised in the Parish, in aid of Ukraine.

At this time we remember all those affected by war across the world, but particulary in Ukraine, and we pray:

Loving God,
We pray for the people of Ukraine,
for all those suffering or afraid,
that you will be close to them and protect them.

We pray for world leaders,
for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.

We pray for the world
that in this moment of crisis,
we may reach out in solidarity
to our brothers and sisters in need.

May we walk in your ways
so that peace and justice
become a reality for the people of Ukraine
and for all the world.

Amen.

Looking back over lockdown

Looking back over lockdown

Dear Parents and Friends of our school,

We have been completely humbled and overwhelmed firstly to be nominated for recognition in the the up and coming Families First awards and secondly by the number of votes and heartfelt comments we have received.  The audience that has taken time to vote reaches far and wide and has made us realise what an extensive school community we have.  Regardless of the outcome at the Awards ceremony this Saturday night, we the staff and pupils are  already feeling like winners, so our sincere thanks.
We have complied a video of some of our lockdown memories linked below, the video is approximately 15minutes long, it could have been a three hour blockbuster as when we looked back collectively over everyone’s input to our online provision and in school service we have realised what a tremendous effort went in to ensuring some sort of normality and fun for our children.
If you haven’t already cast a vote, please click on the link below.  We really appreciate it.

Enjoy the linked video, it gives us all an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come from Easter two years ago.  Looking forward to better times in the near future.
Kind regards,
