St Mary’s C.B.S. is a Catholic school in the tradition of Blessed Edmund Rice. We aim, with the resources available, to provide the best possible environment in order to cater for the cultural, educational, moral, physical, religious, social, linguistic and spiritual values and traditions of all students. We show special concern for the disadvantaged and we make every effort to ensure that the uniqueness and dignity of each person is respected and responded to. We realise too, that we must cater for the changing needs of to-day’s world and towards that end we frequently review our various programmes. Being keenly aware of the ever-increasing effect of outside influences on the lives of our students, we are even more concerned to maintain Catholic values and practices.

We express our commitment to the Edmund Rice Charter by the quality of relationships in the school community. We have a special commitment to the pastoral care of our students and we have a student support team who meet each week to organise assistance to students who may be having a difficulty in any aspect of their life.

We have a religious education team who provide religious education and seek to nurture the faith formation of the school community. Liturgical celebration of the major feasts is a focal point for our school.

We have a special relationship with our partner school in Sierra Leone, Holy Rosary School in Bo. Through our immersion programme we have visited their school, hosted teachers from Holy Rosary School and we have worked through projects together with the support of Worldwise.
