Hello from St. Marys
The staff of St. Marys would like to say a big hello to all our students and their families. We are all getting used to this new way of life and learning and are so proud of the efforts being put in by our families to progress their children’s education. No one could have imagined this being our reality, yet people are rising to the challenges. It goes without saying that this is not easy. There can be problems with devices, internet access, printers and motivation, so we really want to relay that the staff are here for you, to help in any way. (more…)

Online Educational Resources for School Closure

Updated: 13th May 2020

Here are some links to educational websites parents/children might find helpful while schools are closed. Most of the educational websites have provided free access for the duration of the school closures.

It is important to engage in other general activities such as reading daily, board games, art and craft, play, exercise, baking, gardening, mental and social maths.

‘Breathe – Self-Regulation and Relaxation Techniques for Children’ features a range of calming breathing techniques, written activities and guided visualisations that children can use to bring about a sense of peace and comfort in any situation. The resource is suitable for children of all ages and class levels.
