Parents Association

Our next committee meeting will take place in the White House on:

Wednesday 29th of March 2017, 7:00pm

Please be aware that the date of the next meeting has been changed from that agreed in the last meeting due to a conflict with the Prep Department’s Drama Production. The above date will always be the correct one.


All parents, carers, guardians and staff of St. Mary’s are automatically members of the St Mary’s Parent Teachers’ Association (SMPTA) and we warmly welcome your support and participation.
