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.
Big congratulations to TY students April Tambling, Robyn Muprhy, Klaudia Lasota and Ciara Barry who won a prize for best poster at the Merck Schools science competition of friday last.
The girls project entitled ‘Beats on the Brain’ was a very popular project on the day with the judges commenting that it was ‘Music to their ears!’
The winning poster will be on display in Rm 31. Well done again girls!
Today May 6th 2016, the Golden Pages Book Club held a quiz in the school library. The quiz was for 1st and 2nd years. Many students attended the quiz and they really seemed to enjoy it. We were proud to see the amount of people who took part in the quiz. Winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded next week. We hope that this will encourage more people to read and also to join our book club!
Here is our recommended reading list:
Cuckoo Song (by Frances Hardinge) – suitable for 1st years
War Horse (by Michael Morpurgo)
Binge (by Tyler Oakley)
Demon Road (by Derek Landy)
The Book Thief (by Markus Zusak)

In a recent visit to an information event for the One Campaign fight against homelessness, in the CBS, students from St. Mary’s and their teacher, met two members of the High Hopes Choir, and their conductor, Phil Brennan.
Everyone involved gave an impassioned speech about how the High Hopes Choir is an integral part of many people’s lives, some of whom are suffering through homelessness,in Ireland. Part of the event was to receive details about an upcoming Choral evening and to sign a national petition to end homelessness in Ireland.
In the coming weeks, students in St. Mary’s will be encouraged to sign the petition, put forward by the One Campaign.
