Meet our new Sports Leaders
Oliver Carswell from Furness Academy came into St Mary's school to train our newly appointed Sports Leaders. He taught them how to keep children at our school more active and how to be successful playtime leaders. Sports leaders are looking forward to start their role.
Olympian Inspiration Day with Brendan Rielly
Olympian champion Brendan Rielly came to St Mary's at the beginning of the year to share his experience and passion for sport and inspire our children to set and achieve their goals and dreams. We had lots of young athletes on the playground that week trying their best to do high jumps and running.
Well done to our Year 5/6 team for taking part in UIverston Football tournament. They played brilliantly and came second. What a great result!

St Mary's and other local schools are taking part in Brathay 10 school challenge on March 8th at Furness Academy.

Each school in Furness will have 26 children running in the event however, Ulverston cluster will be represented by a team made up of children from St Mary's, Church Walk, Croftlands Juniors and Sir John Barrow.

Quicksticks Hockey Competition
On Thursday 5th November 2015 some children from Year 3 and 4 took part in a Quicksticks Hockey competition. Despite the abysmal weather St Mary's pupils' spirits were not dampened. They were supported by cheering and enthusiastic parents and members of staff.
All of the children played extremely well and St Mary's came 3rd out of 5 teams, only missing out on 2nd place by one point.
St Mary's would like to thank UVHS for organising the event and to say how proud they are of our children for their effort and exemplary behaviour.
