Leaving Certificate Results 2016

Congratulations to all our Leaving Certificate Exam students on their results and the Best of Luck in the future.

Exams are a test of knowledge or skill.They have their importance.However,they are not a measure of the individual.They indicate one aspect of us,but we are much more than any exam can show.Success or failure does not give the full measure of our worth.Each one of us is unique and precious with our own gigts and talents.God made us that way.He wants us to use those talents.Exams can be an anxious time.But remember,we are more than our exam results.We are loved for who we are,not for our achievements.God wants us to discover all our wonderful gifts.”LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE”.

First year French and German Breakfast

There was a decidedly continental feeling around the corridors of St Mary’s High School earlier this week. Once again it was time for our French breakfast and German breakfast mornings. This is an annual event attended by all First year students, to give them a taste (literally!) of the culture of France and Germany. A delicious array of food and tasty treats were on offer, and a most enjoyable morning was had by all involved.IMG-20160517-WA0003 (1) IMG-20160517-WA0001 (1) IMG-20160517-WA0002 (1) IMG_1264 IMG_1257 IMG_1258 IMG_1259
