Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,

What a great day Sunday was, the Confirmation is always a highlight of our school’s year and Sundays Mass was no exception. Thank you to all of the people who helped out but especially to Mrs Mary Dillon and to Fr Michael.

In Year Eight Religious Education we have been looking at symbols and how certain symbols let you know where a person comes from.

Our Catholic special character and the fact that we are a full primary school mark us as being unique. The attributes that we value are what makes our school so successful and such a special place.

Often the little things that we expect or take for granted are the obvious difference between our school and other schools: being gracious in victory and defeat, saying please and thank you, wearing your uniform with pride.

We often expect our pupils to do this but it is only when you look at others schools that you realise not all pupils behave in what we deem to be an acceptable way.

Little things like manners and pride in our appearance are skills that can take people a long way in life so thank you for your support and remember to praise up your child when they display the behaviour that we all agree is right.

Have a great week

Mike Brosnahan
