‘Every Child is a gift from God; gifts we nurture to fulfilment.'
Christ is at the heart of St Mary's School.
Our children are blessed with many talents,
Which we value and nurture for the ultimate service of others
Our school provides a happy, caring community
Which respects the diversity of the world around us.
We foster positive relationships with home, St Mary's Parish and the wider community;
In an environment of love and mutual respect, we experience God's loving care.
At St. Mary's we create an atmosphere in which faith and teaching combine
To foster enquiring minds , independent thinkers, a love of learning,
A thirst for knowledge and the desire to achieve.
Through which, all children will realise their potential and develop their confidence,
Ready to assume a responsible and positive role in society.
In our school family,
Every voice is important and listened to.
Every child is valued as unique and special and
Given the opportunity to learn and grow in the knowledge and love of God.
"We plant the seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted,
Knowing that they hold future promise.
We are prophets of a future not our own."
(Archbishop Oscar Romero)
