P5 have been lucky enough to have the opportunity of learning the African Drums for the past 4 weeks. They enjoyed every minute of it and a big thank you goes out to Jimmy and Austin. Thank you for everything, especially playing the fun drumming games! The class loved them. Lots of future drummers in this class!
A big “Thank You” to David Rushe for visiting Primary 5 yesterday to discuss the importance of fire safety. The children learnt so much about the rules regarding charging electric devices, the safety needed with matches and what to do / who to call, in the case of a fire. All the fire alarms in our homes will be checked this weekend.
It was a busy week in St Mary’s as we celebrated Maths Week Ireland 2021. Everyone from Nursery to P7 enjoyed participating in an array of Maths Week activities. Congratulations to everyone who participated, all of our prize winners, P3a for guessing the correct amount of pumpkins in the jar, P6 for correctly guessing the weight of the pumpkin, and a special shoutout to Master McCoy’s P7 class for winning one of the St. Paul’s Maths Week Challenges. Thank you to everyone who helped to make Maths Week such a great success. Have a lovely Halloween break!
It is hard to believe that today is the last of our 3 week summer camp. We have had so much fun and learnt a lot!
A special thanks this week to Michaela from Sentinus who helped us make our own space rockets which we launched; to Aoife Garvey who presented us all with Certificates of Achievement for our drumming progress; to Vanessa from the AmmA Centre who taught us about animation and we made our own movies; to Kathleen from An Tobar who helped us brighten our school and homes with beautiful flowers and to Sinead who gave us another wonderful art class today! The pictures are fantastic.
Thank you to all the parents for their support over the past three weeks and we hope that the children have enjoyed the last 3 weeks! We also hope that everyone enjoys their summer and stays safe!!

As we enter our final week of summer camp, here are some snap shots of our brilliant second week. We were so lucky with the weather each day!
A special thank you to Aoife with the African drums and Kathleen from An Tobhar. The children learnt so much and really enjoyed the activities. We also had many games in the pitch and art outside. We finished the week off at the football pitch with football matches and rounders.
Great week had by all!
Week 1 of our summer camp is complete and what a week it was! The happy faces in these pictures say it all. Everyone had so much fun and lots of brilliant memories were made this week for all involved. We hope next week is just as great.
A special thank you to Aoife Garvey with the African drums, Niall from the AmmA Centre teaching about “Sound Maps” and the art teacher Sinead Campbell of “The Art and Design Factory.” Your workshops were brilliant and we are so thankful.

Day 2 of our summer camp completed and what a brilliant start we have had!
