Student Council Talent Show 2017

Student Council Talent Show 2017

Our annual Talent Show took place on Friday, 2nd of June.  St Mary’s Student Council organised the Talent Show, assisted by Debby Walsh and Mrs O’Hare. Pupils from Fourth, Fifth and Sixth classes participated in the show and the presenters were Students Council members from Fifth and Sixth classes. There were over thirty acts involved including dramas, solos, singing, dancing, gymnastics and instrumentals.  Two performances were organised, a shorter Junior Show in the morning and a Senior Show after lunch.  Participants paid an entry fee of €3 and the audience was asked to make a donation of €2.  All proceeds from both performances will go to the student-nominated charities-Childline and Dogs Trust Ireland.

Both performances were a great success and lots of positive feedback was received. Some staff members made a surprise appearance with their guitars in tow.  Others sang giving ‘Picture This’ and Nathan Carter a run for their money.  Many agreed that the Talent Show  provided very good entertainment value for €2.

The annual Talent Show is a great opportunity for students to showcase their talents and also to raise funds for many good causes. We appreciate and thank you for all the support we received over the years.

Finally, the Talent Show confirms what we all suspected-St Mary’s got talent and lots of it!

Be Active Week 2017- Day 3

The weather was very unkind to us today and as a result our outdoor activities became indoor activities. Our activities today included the daily 10@10 and Go Noodle, as well as orienteering, yoga and circuits. Some secondary girls have been working with us all week during many of the games and activities. Thanks girls! We thank Kevin Comiskey who visited our school yesterday to teach us all about boxercise and Suzanne Keegan, who took many classes for yoga today in the library. A big ‘thank you’ must also go to Ms Murray and the Be Active Committee who worked really hard this past week to ensure our school was as active as possible. Lots more activities are planned for tomorrow’s Sports Day! Let’s hope the sun shines down on us!

Boyne Walk launches Be Active Week 2017

To launch our upcoming Be Active Week for 2017, we went for a whole-school walk in Trim on June 2nd. Boys, girls, the young and the not-so-young, pupils, teachers and SNAs headed off after morning break. We headed through the church grounds, past the castle, over the wooden footbridge, along the banks of the Boyne, up onto the ring road and along New Dublin Road (stopping for a photo opportunity with the donkeys) before heading back to school. By the time we reached our classrooms, it was time to eat lunch. Be Active Week begins in earnest on June 6th and we can’t wait!
