St Malachy's Catholic Primary School, A Voluntary Academy

Our mission at St Malachy's is to provide an enriching, high quality education, where we learn, love and grow with Christ at the centre, so that each individual feels nurtured and can achieve their full potential.


The season of Advent is a time to prepare for the Birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, on Chirstmas Day. Throughout Advent, children have the opportunity to bring 'Advent Prayer Bags' home to share with their families.

Children participate in a number of activities throughout Advent, including Advent Art Day, wreath making, wreath blessing, nativity productions and a Christingle service on the last day of school.
