It may have lacked the Hollywood A-listers walking the red carpet during the annual awards season, but St. Mary’s, Limavady, held its very own ‘Night at the Oscars’ to celebrate the work of hundreds of students from its feeder primary schools.

As part of the school’s ‘Linking Learning’ programme, the school says the programme is an innovative approach to ensuring a smoother transition to St. Mary’s for Primary 7 pupils.

“Not only does it form part of our overall Induction Process but it is a curricular based learning experience between St Mary’s and our partner primary schools and was created to address the issue of how St. Mary’s can best ensure a continuation of learning as pupils move from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3. The programme supports primary schools and provides innovative opportunities to develop students’ capabilities in ICT, Art and Literacy,” said a spokesperson.

“Each year we also produce a publication entitled, ‘Primary Post’, showcasing the fabulous work that is carried out during this programme.”
