Our School Logo

The Church is an important part of our children's experience in school. St Mary's Church supports us as we encourage the children's religious development, and their personal integrity.

The Book represents the knowledge and skills that children develop. At St Mary's we have high expectations of the children and we strive to develop a love for learning. 

St Patrick's bell represents our heritage. Our school resides in the Parish of Ballyclog ('The Place of the Bell') and Donaghenry and reminds us of our past and the people and places who have gone before us. We encourage our children to value and develop their heritage of faith and culture. To find out more http://www.stewartstownhistory.co.uk/bellcontents.html

The Dove represents the atmosphere in our school -the peace and harmony that prevail in not only the relationships but also within the secure, caring and disciplined environment that we provide.

The Miraculous Medal is at the centre of our logo and represents our steadfast and resolute devotion to Mary. We ensure that we are a community of faith, service, prayer and worship.


Working together with home and church we prepare the children at St. Mary's to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives which will contribute to the Common Good.
