We love doing art in Room 18. We really enjoyed making tinfoil leaf pictures.  They are simple  to do and are eye-catching

Pictures Worth A Thousand Words!

A small selection of photos highlighting events at St Mary’s during December 2016 can be seen underneath. The pictures were taken during visits by members of An Garda Síochána, the Fire Brigade Service and Meath Civil Defence. December wouldn’t be December without a visit from Sr Claudia updating us on her work in Zambia and of course we can’t forget about the countless nativity plays and the annual Santa Dash at our school!

Sr Claudia’s visit to St Mary’s

A very special visitor and a very special message

Many of you will be aware that our Siopa Glas was held on December 1st. The children in the school responded in a most generous way to the Siopa Glas and the raffle. The proceeds from this recycling initiative went to an African Special Needs School. Last Friday Sr Claudia, a former principal of St Mary’s, came in to visit us and told us all about the Special Needs School in Zambia where she worked over the past few years. Sr Claudia shared stories and photographs of children and their families who are so appreciative of the chance to attend the newly set up Flamboyant Special Needs School. Contrary to the sound of its name, the school has very few resources and is a very sparsely decorated building but it has provided opportunities for children with special needs to come and be part of the community and  learn life skills. Many of these children are deaf and others are blind. In the past a disability was considered shameful and children with special needs were hidden away. Flamboyant School has given these children a whole new chance at life, meager as it is. Some parents cycle over 30 km with handmade contraptions attached to their bicycles in order to transport their children to this school. Sr Andrea and Sr Claudia want to purchase a new school bus. We at St Mary’s want to help them. We presented a cheque for €500 to Sr Claudia to make a start. Thank you all for supporting our Siopa Glass and the Flamboyant Special Needs School Bus.

Light of My Life Ceremony at St Mary’s

The annual Light of My Life ceremony took place on December 2nd in our hall. Fr Declan kindly led us in prayer as we remembered deceased family, friends, members of staff and people from the community. Pupils from 3rd class up to 6th class took part in the liturgy. It was a very meaningful service and was made even more prayerful by the beautiful singing provided by the First Communion classes. At the end of the service, our Christmas tree lights were switched on.
