The May Tree

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.

 

School Funds

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have been given the opportunity by the Company “Exemplar Education” to raise much needed school funds. All that is required is for Parents/Guardians to reply to the Company at the link below, there is NO obligation to sign up and we will receive an amount for each reply. We have only 24 hours to get as many replies as possible and are asking your help, see the email below from Exemplar.

International Links- Nepal

International Links- Nepal

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!)
