Please come and visit our EU Comenius tiles display on both floors in the new building extension of the school. This display contains tiles of Irish landmarks painted by boys from St. Mary's and also tiles that were given to us by our partner schools from Portugal, France, the UK and Ballapousta NS, Co. Louth, Ireland that contain their own native landmarks. We in turn have given tiles to these same schools so they could create their own display!
12th-17th March 2014
32 teachers, parents and children from the UK, France and Portugal visited Ireland from 12th-17th March 2014.
They visited St. Mary’s on Friday, 14th March where the visiting children partook in interactive lessons in the different classes they were based in. They also went to Glendalough, Newgrange and the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin and had a fantastic time.
We really enjoyed hosting the teachers and children from our partner schools and the St. Mary's boys gave them a huge 'Céad Míle Fáilte!'
We have already started penpal-emailing them to find out about them and what their schools and countries are like!
