Covid Information for Students and Parents

Check out this video released in August 2021 to support the return of students to school following the summer holidays:

Cycle or Walk

The Department of Education is encouraging students to cycle or walk to school at this time. This is to avoid congregation at school gates and school car parks and to provide fresh air for students before they go to their base room for the day. The school has two bike racks to accommodate students who are cycling.


To provide safety for students walking at two meters apart as they enter and exit the school, we are asking parents and teachers not to use the front car park at this time. We are operating a drop and go system and would advise parents to drop students at Brookwood Road in order to avoid using the school gateway at this time.

COVID-19 Vulnerable Students

If your child is deemed vulnerable due to health conditions or personal circumstances, we need to plan specifically around her needs. We already have a St Mary's Health Register but in light of COVID we ask that all Parents/Guardian of students that may be in this category to e-mail with the subject title: COVID Vulnerable Student (Year and Class)

Please include a full description of the vulnerability in light of COVID Pandemic in the email body. If further information is required we will follow up with you individually.

Contacting the Main Office

The school is currently experiencing a high volume of calls and correspondence as a result of Covid-19 and the limited accessibility to schools at this time. We endeavour to answer emails within 48 hours and would ask that the phone menu is used to select the appropriate person to whom your correspondence relates. The school journal should be used for correspondence as much as possible as a means of communication. The accounts office is only accessible from 10am -1pm each day. Most other information is available on the website, please check before phoning. We thank you for your patience at this time.
