Our co-College production of the Sound of Music, with students from St Joseph's College, was a huge hit. Audiences were blown away by the professionalism and talent of the show and students involved. Some were even heard saying...'I think I'll come again!'.

Our Principal, Maria Haggett was seen to have a tear in her eye as the curtain closed on the first night, after seeing her favourite stage show played out by Mater students, alongside their peers from St Jos.

Building Belonging Post Pandemic – A SchoolTV Special Report

August 24th, 2022

Having a sense of belonging involves more than simply knowing other people. It is also focused on gaining acceptance, attention and support from others, as well as having the opportunity to provide the same to other people.

When the pandemic interrupted our lives and changed the way we live, this meant that suddenly many of our young people’s main sources of connection with peers and extended family members was removed overnight without warning.

Mater Moments – Graham Balderstone

August 22nd, 2022
