MARCH 2020



First Confession

The P3 children will celebrate the sacrament of Penance at 2pm on Tuesday 3rd March. Parents are asked to collect P3 pupils at 1.10 and to go directly to the chapel.


Choir members are asked to attend First Confession as well. The choir will be bused to the chapel and should be collected from there at 2.45. If you are unable to make arrangements for your child to be collected at the chapel, they can remain in school and go home as usual.

Permission slips for this arrangement have already been sent out.

Once again, we thank the parents for their support in bringing choir members to these important events.


Internet Safety

Our P4s will deliver an Internet Safety assembly on Friday 6th March. Please take time to read the attached sheet. It has been sent previously to parents but as it is such an important issue we are issuing it again.


St Patrick’s Day

School will be closed on Monday 16th March and Tuesday 17th March.


St Patrick’s Day Parade

St Mary’s GAC Aghagallon, in association with the Ancient Order of Hibernians will organise their annual parade from the Cranagh Hall at 10am to mass in Aghagallon at 11. We have been invited to participate in the parade. We would like to continue to promote our school within the local community and would love for our school to be well represented again this year. Complete the attached slip if you are available to take part in the parade.


Gaelic Training

Gaelic training for P5/6/7 will begin again on Monday 9th March weather permitting. Please bring appropriate clothing and gumshields. Parents will be informed of any changes via our text service.


March Blitz Dates: Friday 13th March and Friday 27th March


Derrymore World Book Day: Thursday 12th March

The official World Book Day is Thursday 5th March. Due to a lot of other activities taking place this week, we plan to celebrate it on Thursday 12th March.

We have planned a number of events to celebrate World Book Day. An information sheet will be sent home with all pupils in relation to this. Details can be found on the school Facebook page.


The Travelling Book Fair will be open for parents on Thursday 26th March from 4 to 5.30. Pupils will have opportunities to visit and buy books during class time.


Thank you all for your continued support and help in all that we do here in St Mary’s.
