Local Community



On Thursday, 15th December Children, Staff, Parents & Governors entertained shoppers at the Local Morrison's Store, with their great singing. All donations collected- have been put to the Fundraising for one of our Children who suffers with Cystic Fibrosis, who needs a special vest.  

Many Thanks to everyone who took park and everyone who supported us.


What a fantastic event! Many of our congregation from St Malachy’s and St Columba’s Church came together in the school hall for a special meal on the afternoon of Wednesday, 14th December and were treated to carols from the children, Christmas Dinner, cake, goodie bags and a raffle. Many were ex-pupils/parents or teaching staff from St Malachy’s and they had a good look around school to see how it had changed.  

A big thank you goes out to our governors, PTFA, cooks, children and staff who supported the event, plus to Morrison’s who were very generous in their donations towards the event. I am so grateful we have such a dedicated body of people in school. Well done and thank you, everyone.
