The annual Rounders League has begun at St Mary’s. Six teams from within the school are taking part. Each team of twelve players comprises four pupils from 4th Class, four pupils from 5th Class and four pupils from 6th Class. All we need now is a spell of dry weather!
We congratulate the girls in 2nd Class who received First Holy Communion on Saturday, May 13th, in St Patrick’s Church, Trim. The girls had been preparing for this special day since September. With guidance from Fr Declan Kelly and their teachers, Ms Roche and Mrs McGale, the girls have now taken another important step in their Faith Journey. As a school and parish community, we thank all who helped to make the day memorable for the children.
Europe is a continent full of exciting places, people and cultures. That was one of the messages we learned during today’s visit to the EU Food and Veterinary Office at Grange, Kiltale. These offices are open fifteen years and to mark the occasions the staff decided to open its doors to primary school children in the locality. We were welcomed by friendly staff from different countries across the EU. They gave each of us a bag full of supplies including maps, booklets and information sheets. We had a “question and answer” session in the main conference room where the European Commission’s agricultural representatives from all across the EU meet to debate important issues from time to time. The perimeter of the room had about eight translation booths including French, German, Italian and Spanish. In another part of the building, we were divided into groups. We took part in activities identifying the benefits of the EU and how the EU ensures its citizens have access to food produced to the highest safety standards. We spent two hours at the offices and we enjoyed our time there.

Greet your child with a smile not a MOBILE!
The ‘Greet your child with a smile not a mobile’ logo has spread across the country and even in the U.K. It is encouraging parents everywhere to not be on their mobile phones when collecting their children from school. You have heard of mobile phones being banned from the classroom, now it’s the gates too and it’s their parents who are the culprits. This is especially for younger children who do not have experience yet with child-adult conversations. So are you on your mobile phone and are you feeling guilty after reading this article? Ask yourself the question, can you improve like I think you can?

The 2017 National Scratch Final took place in Limerick recently. After months of hard work, two of our 6th Class pupils made it to the final. The judges were very impressed with the girls’ project. Below is a photograph of the girls displaying the medals they received in Limerick. BT Young Scientist Competition here they come! Well done girls!
Last Friday, the Dublin Youth Orchestra paid a four hour visit to St Mary’s and wowed the school community with energetic pieces of music. Our own well-established Banna played alongside the DYO during a number of these pieces and Mrs McGale was at hand to assist with the conducting.
Happy Easter from all in Room 18!
