Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Presentation
Bronze Duke of Edinburgh

This week Mr Dawson and the regional manager for the Duke of Edinburgh award presented students with their Bronze certificates and pin badges.  We are very proud of what students achieved throughout the award as they have shown real grit, determination, resilience and persistence to complete it. As a school we had 54 students complete the Bronze award last year and have a 95% completion rate.  This puts us in the top 20% of schools nationally.

The event included a brief overview of the trust and what services they carry out. Students also had the opportunity to take part in a workshop to discuss how the 6c's are at the heart of the healthcare profession. Finally the students were asked to state what quality means to them.

Mock Interviews
Year 11 Mock Interview Day

On Monday 10th of October St Mary's invited 27 local employers and training providers to take part in Year 11 Mock Interview Day. Throughout the course of the day each of our Year 11 students had the opportunity to have a one to one interview with one of our guests. The purpose of the event was to improve interview skills and technique and prepare our students for their futures. The event was hugely rewarding for the students with many having never taken part in a formal interview before.

Year 7 Welcome Conference
Wow What a Welcome Conference!

The Year 7s have completed their two days and Mass and have had a great time.  They have climbed, run, sang, danced, prayed, run some more, skateboarded, shot arrows, made fires, run around a bit more, BMXed, made shelters and above all had fun as all of the pictures show.

They have said that they will remember it forever! Our thanks to Animate Youth, WLCT  at Howe Bridge, Frs. Paul, Kieran and Paul and especially Sarah our Chaplain for their partnership in making the last two days very special.  The children have been outstanding.
