The challenging task of handing on the faith is one that is shared by family, parish, and school. In St. Mary’s Religious Education is an integral part of our extensive curriculum. This work is supported by a dedicated Team of RE Teachers and a school Chaplain. Retreats, liturgies, fund raising activities and guest speakers are an integral part of the programme. Our students are encouraged to be reflective and active young Christians, with a commitment to core gospel values. The school aims to promote respect for different faiths, fostering inclusion and understanding.
