We will be closing early on Friday for Christmas Holidays for a well- deserved rest for pupils and staff…. over the past month we have had: P4 Enrollment Mass, P7 pupils taking part in Advent Masses in the Parish, Carol Singing, Penitential Service for P5 +P6, Switching on of the Christmas lights, P 5 Nativity, Nursery Activity, Foundation Nativity, Class Trip to Santa for Nursery, P7 Trip, a Video Conference with our Erasmus Partner Schools, Christmas Dinner, Presentation for P 5 Artwork, Presentation for KS2 pupils who took part in Coding last term, Celebration night for all those who took part in Michael J Murphy Winter School, P7 Girls Football Blitz… and with all that has been going on pupils have also taken the time to think of others: Nursery organised a “Shoebox Appeal” and KS2 Pupils have to date collected just over £100 for St. Vincent De Paul…

Well done to everyone and thank you to Parents and Friends of St. Mary’s for your support over what has been a busy few weeks. We wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
