In recent times, Saint Mary’s have won the Saint Michael’s Shield, have been runners up in the league and have been in three other school finals in the last year, highlighting the steady progress and great improvement under the management of Armagh Minor coach, Mr. Kieran Robinson and former Down County player, Mr John Fegan. We have also had numerous school players that have represented the school at halftime in major county matches. At the school, coaching is offered for both boys and girls from Primary 5 to 7.
At Saint Mary’s, we believe in equipping the children in our care with the skills that they will need for their futures. As such, each year from its beginning, we have taken part in the CCEA ICT Accreditation. This accreditation involves providing the children with important computer skills for which they receive certificates in Primary Seven certifying their abilities. In order to provide these opportunities in ICT, the school uses laptops with Internet capabilities, Beebots, Probots and Interactive Whiteboards for the children’s use so they can acquire and develop these skills.
