Ceolchoirm Seachtain na Gaeilge 2024

Once again, St. Mary’s students wowed as Gaeilge by performing songs and poems for Seachtain na Gaeilge 2024. Every child in the school took part in what, as you can see below, was a fantastic celebration of all things Irish sa Ghaeilge.

6th Class Graduation 2023
6th Class Graduation 2023

On Wednesday 21st June, it was time for our 6th Class of 2023 to say goodbye to St. Mary’s as they graduated from 6th Class and primary school. The DEN, 4th and 5th classes gathered in the hall to mark the occasion. Ms Jordan reminisced about events throughout this groups’ years in St. Mary’s from near escapes in Junior Infants to our 6th Class school tour only a week before. She echoed how everyone in St. Mary’s is proud of their achievements and progress during their time here.

The Class of 2023 were then called out individually and presented with certificates and framed graduation mementos. Afterwards, they sang their graduation songs of ‘Believer’ and ‘Whatever it Takes’, before throwing their mortar hats to the ceilings in celebration.

They gathered their belongings and made their way through a whole school guard of honour, exiting the gates as St. Mary’s pupils for the last time.

We wish every single member of the 6th Class of 2023 the very best in their futures and invite them back at any time to let us know how they are doing.

100% Attendance

Well done to our 5 students who had a perfect attendance for the 2022/2023 school year. It’s a great achievement and these five students were awarded special certificates for their achievement.
Well done again and what great role models you are for all our students.

St. Mary’s took to the Ramor Theatre stage last week on Monday and Tuesday nights to perform to a sold-out crowd in what was a magnificent display of acting, singing, dancing and fun. 3rd to 6th classes wowed the audience, while the School Trad Group also put on a brilliant performance to send everybody home in fantastic spirits as our school year closed out.

The theme of the night was “The Oscars at Ramor”, and all classes put on Oscar-worthy performances.

Well done to all our performers and thanks to all our parents and school community who came down to support our students.

Petting Farm Visit to St. Mary’s

Huge excitement reigned over St. Mary’s on the 8th of June as a petting farm visited and all junior classes came to see, and even hold, some of the wonderful animals on show. The pupils from Junior Infants to Second Class saw animals like dogs, goats, rabbits, ponies, sheep and the more exotic creatures like snakes, lizards and spiders. It was an incredibly fun experience where children learned so much about the animals too.

We had a very exciting start to Active Week in Junior Infants with a visit to the playground for our Sponsored Walk. We had lots of fun playing together in the playground and getting to enjoy the sun 😀.

by Room One

Mrs Gibbons’ Class, Ms Smith’s Class and Ms Galligan’s Class walked to the Fire Station on Tuesday.

When we got there we had to wait at the wall. We met Firefighters John and Phillip.

First, we went to the locker room and we learned about what starts fires.

Next we went to the fire truck. We saw the things that firefighters need when there’s a fire and we got to go into the fire truck. We got a blast of the siren as we left.

It was so much fun.

Gardening in Room 2
Gardening in Room 2

Junior Infants have been very busy creating our classroom garden. We first started by planting seeds for our windowsills and each group, The Bees, The Butterflies, The Owls and The Frogs planted sunflowers. We also wanted to create an outside garden. Here we planted bedding plants and bulbs. Everyone took turns in the planting process. We now have the big responsibility of looking after and tending to our garden. Each day a student is picked as ‘Head Gardener’ and has the job of watering the flowers. We are looking forward to watching our garden blossom and grow into something beautiful.
