In developing its global outreach, St Mary’s High School is actively working with Fr Donall O’Cathain SMA to support the development of education in Africa.
As a Rights Respecting School, St. Mary’s is keen to improve the life opportunities of children in developing countries by supporting quality education. Before travelling back to Africa, Fr Donall visited St Mary’s to attend a special assembly where he spoke to the school about the progress made in developing education in Africa. He praised the work of the students through their fund raising activities and curriculum links. To date St Mary’s Newry has raised £41,000 to support Fr. Donall in his school building programme.
