Tag Rugby Team Success
The children are at the heart of everything we do.
Congratulations to the Tag Rugby Team who were joint champions of the Eastern District Competition. They will now play the winners of the other 3 regions in the Final on 1st December 2010 from 1pm to 3pm at the National Sports Centre.
Congratulations are also in order for all the Year 3 / 4 Football Team who came 3rd in the Douglas Primary Schools Competition.
Well done to all the pupils who met in Peel for the Fell Race, Connor Cooke from Year 4 had a particularly good run and came a close 2nd in his age group.
After Christmas Years 3 and 4 will be able to take part in a Hockey Club more details are available from Mrs Quinn.

St Mary’s School Choir
Monday 29th November 2010 choir members from Years 4, 5 and 6 will be singing at Nobles Hospital to promote a new hand hygiene initiative singing a specially composed rap song. This perform- ance will be recorded by Manx Radio.
The Choir will also be singing Christmas Carols outside Marks and Spencer on the 9th December from 5pm - 6pm. Please come along and put money in our charity collection buckets!

Sickness Bugs and Vomiting
Please remember that if your child has been vomiting it is recommended that they do not return to school for 48 hours after they have last vomited. This will help to prevent the spread of illness amongst the other pupils.

Congestion Problems
At 3.30 to avoid congestion please can arrangements be made to meet children either in the school yard or outside by the kitchen. The smaller children are finding it increasingly difficult to get through the crush at the foot of the stairs in the Lower Key Stage 2 area where parents appear to be gathering.
Sadly we do not seem to have seen any improvement in the traffic congestion at the end of the school day. PLEASE do not drive into St Mary’s Road to collect your child. Parents are parking on double yellow lines, double parked, stopped on corners, stopped in the bus stop lane, parked on the zebra crossing zig zags and this really does need to improve. We have a new Police Liaison Officer who has been working with the children selected to be our Road Safety Officers highlighting the dangers and problems of parking and speeding. Gabe and Jamie appeal to all drivers to please take more care around the school.
