For our girls to take their place as decent citizens of a challenging world, it is essential for them to develop a real and deep concern for others. Throughout St Mary’s history, we have tried to make a difference in the community and to add value to the lives of our girls. We believe in sharing our privilege as that is the very essence of an Anglican school.
We are closely related to a number of community and service projects. We are committed to sharing our expertise, facilities and resources and aim to include and serve communities in need.
St Mary’s Community Affairs Department has been active since 1990 and the Alexandra Programme currently assists more than 200 pupils from Alexandra. These young people are offered extensive tuition in Mathematics, Physical Sciences and English to supplement their education. They are offered IT skills and are taught how to run micro-businesses. The Programme mission is to serve the Alexandra community by making a measurable contribution to raising the level of learning and teaching.
