I leave you with our school’s vision statement which we are striving.

At Saint Mary’s Catholic Primary School, we envisage a Catholic school community where all members have a strong connection with the Church.

We strive to live by the gospels and strengthen our faith through the school, family and parish partnership.

We seek to assist children to see the intrinsic worth of knowing God and encourage them to positively challenge their own morals and actions.

We envisage a school community where all feel safe, happy and accepted; where all students have their talents and interests celebrated and developed.

We strive to achieve a community of lifelong learners where students operate with a balance of optimism and reality in dealing with challenging learning and life experiences.
