Our Catholic Identity

St Mary’s Parish School, Hay, provides opportunities for our children, staff and parents to know and celebrate our Catholic faith through participation in the religious life of our school. Each morning we participate in the saying of our school prayer at our morning assembly and parents are invited to our whole school Friday afternoon assemblies that are held every two weeks and led by each class on a rotational basis. 

We believe that our school is a place where our children’s faith is nurtured and the scriptures are taught in a meaningful way. We hope that the message of Jesus becomes a part of each child as they grow and develop in their faith so that this message will bring comfort to their lives as they grow and develop in their faith as they face the challenges of the world of the future.
