President-position available. 

This role is still available-either in a shared capacity or as a singular role. Your involvement would require attending monthly meetings at school and helping, together with other committee members, to plan, organise and implement fundraisers and social events for St Mary’s. 

Please let Clare know if you are interested or leave your name and contact details at the office. 

We are also very keen for new parents & carers to join the p&f committee-please come along to our next meeting on Thursday 1st June at 2pm at school. All very welcome!



Toast is available each morning between 8:30am-8:50am prior to the commencement of the school day for those students who would like a piece before they begin their learning.

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who enable this to happen! If you would like to volunteer, please let Clare, Jo or Krystal in the office know!

Sushi is available to be ordered for school lunch each Friday. Orders need to be placed and paid for online via the school lunch online website prior to 5pm each Thursday.
