House Colours

Each child will be allocated a house colour when they begin at St Mary’s.  Each classroom will be divided between the four house colours of Blue (Mary), Green (Patrick), Yellow (Euphrasie) and Red (Anthony).  The house colour scheme is to facilitate stronger relationships between children of different age groups.


The PTA meets approximately twice a term in the school staff room.  New members and fresh ideas are always welcome.  If you are do not have the time to join the PTA but would like to help at some of the PTA events, please check the latest PTA newsletter by clicking on the PTA link on the homepage.
