St. Mary's Parents Group

This month, we had our first meeting of St. Mary’s Parents Group. We decided to organise a fundraiser event for the Toy Show where all pupils would get a treat for the Toy Show. Thank you so much to Glanmore Foods for their kind donations and to the parents who packed all of the treat bags!
