Year 11 Maths
I am delighted that the Year 11 maths results are continuing to improve. We still have a few weeks left and with the good attitude and hard work which year 11 are displaying these should get even better. I am very grateful to the maths department for their continued hard work, it is paying off!
I am delighted that so many of pour students are involved in sports at a regional and local level. We will provide the results next week and wish them all the very best. Good luck team StTM!
St Patrick's Day
As there are so many of us with Irish connections, I would like to wish you all a very Happy St Patrick’s Day.
So who was St Patrick?
St Patrick was a real man who was born in around 385 AD. He may have been named Maewyn Succat, and changed to Patrick when he later became a bishop. He may be thought of as Irish now, but his exact birthplace is unknown
It was most likely in Scotland. In his teens, he was captured by pirates and taken to Ireland, where he was put to work as a herdsman. After six years, he managed to escape and possibly fled back to his home. He became a Christian priest before returning to Ireland as a missionary in the mid fifth century.
He spent the next 30 years establishing schools, churches, and monasteries across the country.
Patrick was later appointed as successor to St Palladius, the first bishop of Ireland. He is said to have died on March 17 in the year 461.
