40 years ago this year, St. Mary’s NS opened its doors for the first time! Throughout the year, we will mark this anniversary in different ways. Here’s some photos of those who were here from the very start!
One of our 6th class pupils, MARK MURRAY has entered the RTÉ Children’s Art Competition with this piece of fantastic artwork about Covid-19! The theme for this year’s competition is ‘This is Now!’ You can view Mark’s entry below. Well done, Mark! We in St. Mary’s are very proud of you and wish you all the best in the competition! Here’s what Mark had to say about why and how he created his work:
A World of Covid! “This is now! Covid has spread all over the world. Life has been very black and white for people but now the vaccines are here and they will inject colour back into the world, bit by bit! That’s why I drew this picture in black and white and then added in circles of colour where the corona spikes turn into vaccines and attack the virus! I drew one big coronavirus with famous buildings from around the world and filled in the gaps with doodles about life in lockdown!”
We said farewell to Mr. Gerard O’Byrne before Christmas. He was a teacher in our school and a great friend to so many past and present staff since 1986!!! We wish you a long, happy and healthy retirement, Gerard!
