Dont Forget ............








Symbols are important in Irish society so long as they have meaning. They remind people they are part of a group and also they give people a sense of belonging to that group. In the same way the school crest, which is a symbol of the school, must have meaning if students are to have a sense of belonging to the school.

The crest consists of four images which indicates the areas of school life the students engage in during their time in St. Mary's. The banner contains the phrase Facere et Docere..

meaning do and to teach.
