The total raised so far from the Student Non-Uniform day on Friday 20 November is £856.00, we thank all who supported this worthy cause.
There is also a clothing appeal.
Non-Uniform Day Collection
The collection will be passed on to St Vincent de Paul.
As a collective effort to support the refugee crisis St. Mary’s will be directly supporting the work of St. Vincent de Paul in settling refugees in Leeds.
Support for Refugees Clothing Appeal
The emphasis on second-hand/used clothing are:
- Fleeces, particularly microfleece
- Track suit bottoms
- Hats and gloves
- These items are needed for adults and children, but there is a particular need for male adult clothing and trainers.
All items to be brought into form rooms
St. Mary’s have had their Fairtrade Schools Award renewed after a considerable amount of hard work from both staff and pupils.
Four St. Mary’s students were lucky enough to be a part of the Fairtrade Celebration Event which was held in the Banqueting Suite of Leeds Civic Hall on 9 March
Caitlin (Year 9) is the first student to complete all the tasks required to achieve the award.
Students came in their own clothes on Wednesday 29 June 2016 and the event benefited The Bambisanani Partnership and World Youth Day charities.
We have given much of the produce away as prizes for Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 activities.
The event will take place in our Staffroom and will raise money to help Simphiwe Ndlovu, our Bambisanani Teacher

All pupils who go to St. Mary's are eligible to vote because our school is in Leeds!
