Your gift today will
make all the difference
to the year ahead

Happy New Year! May your 2015 be filled with joy and happiness. I know that’s what we’re striving for here at St Mary’s – a year of success for our boys and girls.

And you can help us achieve this goal with your online donation here.

You see it’s back to school for our youngsters . . . and as you can imagine it’s an expensive time for us.

There’re school uniforms, stationery, sports kits and extramural activities to consider – not forgetting fruit and healthy lunchbox treats.

So if you’re yet to make your ‘back to school’ contribution, please can we count on your help here?

Your support will take us one-step closer to getting our children ready to face their first day at school with zeal and confidence.

And what’s more you’ll help them fit in with their classmates knowing they have caring friends like you by their side.

If you agree that our children deserve the chance to be the best they can be please make your contribution here.

Gifts in kind and willing volunteers are also hugely appreciated. Please click here for more information, or telephone the home on
011 435-3820.
