St Mary’s supporting Childers
ST MARY’S College, Maryborough, will begin transportation for Childers secondary students at the start of the 2016 school year.
Conversations began about providing another option for Childers families which are in the process of deciding secondary schooling for their children.
St Mary’s principal Graham Meertens said: “It just makes sense to provide the people of Childers another secondary option that may suit their child. I understand there are local schools that have served the community well, but St Mary’s could give families another option that suits their needs.”
St Mary’s is a co-educational school that has just over 400 students.
The school provides plenty of curriculum diversity and pastoral care for all students.
“Our middle schooling programs focuses on easing the transition into secondary school for our Year 7 and 8 students and the senior schooling provides plenty of options for students investigating higher learning and career options,” Mr Meertens said.
The College also offers a supportive pastoral care program that enriches students’ lives through experiences.
Mr Meertens and St Mary’s staff will be available for informal conversations about the college and transport arrangements at St Joseph’s Primary School on Tuesday, August 18, starting at 5pm
