All Yr8-11 students should now have a copy of their summer exam test timetable. 

Pupils should only attend for their exams and go home immediately after. 

There will be no tuck shop or canteen facilities available.

Only Yr 8s are expected to attend school on Thur 28th June.

 

The Student Council has been working with the Parent Teacher and Friends Association to look into enhancing the lunchtime experience for our students.

The PTFA recently secured over £8000 via the National Lottery Grants Scheme to purchase outdoor furniture to enhance the student experience in St Mary's and provide an area conducive to the promotion of positive mental health.

We would like to have student input into how this money is spent and would invite all students to complete the short survey via the following link. This will take no more than a minute of your time.

LUNCHTIME FACILITIES SURVEY

 

 

St Mary's was proud to have been part of a truly uplifting event in the darkness and light of Saturday morning.

Walking with over a thousand people, each with their own reasons for being there, our school community walked together to break the stigma of mental health issues and to say that it is ok to talk.

We look forward to Darkness Into Light 2019.

Boys from the Social Justice Advocacy Group today connected with Cardinal Newman College in Buenos Aires Argentina to discuss human rights issues.

The boys looked at Article 25 and the right to housing, while the Buenos Aires pupils focused on Article 2 and equal entitlement to rights and freedom.

We look forward to engaging again with the Buenos Aires pupils and hopefully the technology gremlins can be addressed before then! #ERI #EREBB #stillsomebody

Principal Mr Martin recently made known his intention to retire this Halloween.

Mr Martin is in his fourth year as Principal of St Mary’s and his leadership of the school will be greatly missed.

Focus remains firmly on leading the school towards a successful set of examination results this summer and the Principal will address the school community at a later date.

 

 The staff of St Mary’s are delighted to be supporting Darkness Into Light 2018 and have set up a school group on the DIL website.

Working with a variety of agencies throughout the year to promote positive mental health and to support those in need, we look forward to walking into the sunrise in Hannahstown on Saturday 12th May. 

The school is aware of a large number of boys and their families who are already doing the walk through their GAA clubs or other groups and look forward to sharing the experience on the Saturday morning. 

If anyone wishes to register, or join the school online group, you can do so through the following link.

Good luck everyone!
