Return to school

Congratulations to the 6th class children who will be graduating from St. Malachys MNS this year. You should all be very proud of yourselves after a difficult time of learning from home and adapting to big changes in school. Well done!

We wish you all the best of luck in your new schools, you have bright futures ahead of you and we hope to see you back in St. Malachy’s for a visit soon.
