Catholic Schools participate in the mission of the Church. The work of the School Board takes place within the context of the work of the Catholic Church educating its young people in the Christian faith and for full participation in society.
The School Board lies at the heart of a Christian community where all share in rights, dignities and responsibilities. The Board works towards this vison of community, striving to build a place where all people feel supported and valued.
The School Board is responsible to the Bishop through the director of Catholic Education.
St Mary’s School Board meets once a month, usually on a Thursday. The School Board AGM is held in March each year. Nominations are called prior to the meeting. Prospective members are required to meet with the principal and Parish Priest to discuss the role, function and responsibilities of School Board members.
