Mr McLaughlins P7A class got the opportunity to visit the Guildhall in Derry on Monday to take part in an event organised by Derry and Strabane District Council to celebrate Local Democracy Week. The boys and girls got a tour of the Guildhall, met the Mayor and took part in activities such as drawing a portrait of the Mayor, and imagining what they would do if they were Mayor for the day.
St Mary's in partnership with Strabane Ethnic Community Association held a culture day in the school this week (Tuesday in the Senior School, Wednesday in the Junior School). The children really enjoyed the opportunity to learn a bit more about Polish and Indian culture. The children got to try on traditional clothes and sample Indian and Polish food. Photos of Culture Day 2015 can be viewed in the Gallery.
St Mary's held an Internet Safety Workshop for parents in the Senior School on Tuesday Evening. The Workshop was hosted by REIM Training and covered many topics in relation to keeping children safe online. It was a very interesting evening which gave the parents in attendance an insight into the dangers faced by our children on-line. Those parents who were unable to attend on Tuesday night can visit the Internet Safety page on our website.
