St Mary’s sup­port­ing Childers

Isis Town and Country - - Advertising Feature -

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
