Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Welcome back for term three, as I write this July is almost over and we are beginning to see the end of winter.
This term is going to be another busy time with a number of sports afternoons, class Masses and the continuation of the sacramental programme.We also have groups of senior pupils taking part in the Stars on Stage dance performance and the Catholic Schools Choir.
At St Mary’s we pride ourselves on giving our pupils a wide range of opportunities to enable us to do this we rely heavily on parental support.I would like thank all of those parents who give up their time to support us, thank you.
One of the highlights of my position is meeting with Principals of schools that our children move to at the end of Year Eight.Our pupils universally move into Year Nine seamlessly and judging by the feedback that I have from the high schools that our pupils go to, they achieve great things.A full primary education ensures that our pupils are fully prepared for their move to secondary school in Year Nine (the old Third Form).We will be holding an information evening for our senior class soon (date to be confirmed) so that the parents of pupils in Year Five and Six can appreciate fully the opportunities that our pupils get in Year Seven and Eight at St Mary’s.
