“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-6

We are happy that you have chosen to be part of our wonderful school community. Each child at CSM is accepted for who they are and encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability. Our staff work hard to ensure that students are supported as they learn in a challenging, nurturing and loving 21st Century Learning environment. We look forward to working in partnership with you and St. Martha parish, to provide the very best in Catholic education. As we enter this year, our hopes are that as a school community we are mindful of the commitment to our Catholic Social teaching as we Grow in Faith Together (G.I.F.T).
