This week Primary 5 have been learning about “The Celts,” with help from Una Walsh. They completed art work that they hung this morning on the May Tree outside the Community Centre. This is to highlight the Celtic “Bealtaine” season that starts tomorrow, 1st May.
We would like to thank Una for her time this morning and the online collab on Wednesday where she spoke to the children about Celtic history, particularly in South Armagh. The children learnt so much about the history of this unique area from her and they can’t wait to visit Mullaghbawn’s very own Celtic Roundhouse at Bluebell Glamping when it opens back up.

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!
Please find the link to the webcam in St Mary’s Church, Mullaghbawn copied below.
Both Confirmation ceremonies will be live streamed through this link. The camera will be turned on just approaching 5pm each evening, to allow any family members who unfortunately are unable to attend due to restrictions, to view the ceremony from home.
We wish the P7 year group the very best of luck as they make their Confirmation this week and ask everyone connected with our school and wider parish community to keep them in their prayers at this time. The first group will be confirmed @5 pm this Tuesday (April 27th) and the second group being confirmed @5 pm on Thursday (April 29th), with both ceremonies taking place in St Mary’s Church,
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!)
