Best Wishes Mullaghbawn Ladies

St Mary’s PS wishes the best of luck to the Mullaghbawn Senior Ladies’ team who take part in the Armagh Intermediate County Final this Saturday. Pictured are some of our P7’s who made posters to wish the team luck.

A special mention to staff members Miss Niamh Murphy, Mrs Sara Grant & Miss Aoife Tierney, as well as the numerous past pupils on the team. The success of the senior team helps to inspire the younger generations and participation numbers for girls’ football in our school and club are increasing every year.

We encourage as many pupils and families as possible to support the team in the final. It is against Killeavy this Saturday afternoon @2pm in the Athletic Grounds. Good luck!

P7 Conclude SPAR Sports Week

Primary 7 brought St Mary’s Sports Week to a conclusion this afternoon with their Sports Day. Well done to all of the children who took part and enjoyed a fun afternoon in the sun. Sincere thanks to McCreesh’s SPAR Mullaghbawn for their generous sponsorship of goody-bags for every pupil in the school once again this year. This treat was very much appreciated by all of the children!

It has been a busy week with each year group having their own individual Sports Day over the past 4 days. The music has been pumping and the field a hive of activity all week. A special mention to the P7 pupils who worked in teams to support the class teachers with setting up and organising the different events each day.

Sports Day 2021

Sports Day Note

Dear Parent / Guardian,

This year, our traditional Sports Day event is going to be a little different. Each year group will be designated a specific day over the course of a “Sports Week” for their own Sports Day. The timetable for all year groups has been copied above. If you have difficulty viewing the timetable, please try clicking the link below it which will open a PDF version of this message. A hard copy will also be sent home with the eldest child in each family tomorrow (Thursday).

On their Sports Day, pupils should wear their tracksuit / shorts and bring a hat, sun cream and a bottle of water. Unfortunately, we cannot welcome any parents / guardians into the school this year for Sports Day, again due to the ongoing restrictions. Fingers crossed the weather remains in our favour as we move into next week.

Kind Regards, Mr McDonnell.

Cross Country 2021

Last Thursday afternoon saw the “Finals Day” competition for St Mary’s Cross Country 2021. Over the previous 3 weeks, pupils from P4-P7 practised 3 times per week. There was a great improvement across the board and some serious determination on display. Keeping active remains such an important aspect of our pupils’ daily lives as it helps to bring about a positive impact on their physical and mental health.

All pupils from P4-P7 were presented with certificates to commend them for their efforts over the past 3 weeks. There were also medals for 1st / 2nd / 3rd place in each race. Check out some of the photos below from a great afternoon’s fun. Well done to each and every pupil who took part!

Next up in this Summer term is Sports Day, which will also have to be a little different this year. More information coming very soon…
