To all our Leaving and Junior Certificate students please note the below announcement from Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh TD. We are with you all the way.
👋 Hi first years and first year parents a new google classroom has been set up for all first years as a place to post a question if they need anything. There will also be Wellbeing elements too for planning their day, study life balance and fun but educational activities.
Hope we all had a good week. 🌟
Fridays are always a favourite at St Mary’s. Obviously the weekend is close. Theres an air of excitment.
Usually around 10.45 the beautiful smell of cookies makes it’s way around the school as we await all of the lovely friday treats from the canteen. Students will discuss what’s on for the weekend as they sit together. Teachers will share a cup of tea or coffee at break time and chat about their week and what’s planned for the coming days.

Lockers are busy as our students pack their bags for study over the weekend. For some dentention is on the cards.who doesn’t love an extra hour at school!😉
The past few weeks have made so many of us appreciate our lovely school and the brilliant people we meet every day, students and our whole school staff. We look forward to those fridays again the “See you Miss” “Have a good weekend Sir” and even the slagging!😉
Enjoy the weekend. Be ready for another good week of work on Monday 💪👌
