St. Mary's RC Primary Retreat

 

About our School

 

St. Mary’s (RC) Primary was founded by the Holy Cross Sisters on 8 April 1934.

The sisters come to do missionary work in Retreat, but soon realised that the community needed a school.  For the next 37 years, the principals were Holy Cross Sisters.  The first lay person appointed in 1971 was Mr Darling, who retired in 1990.  Ms Muller succeeded him in 1991 and is still the principal.   

 

At first the Medium of instruction at St Mary’s was Afrikaans but the school became dual medium in 1975.   Today the LOLT is English.  

 

In 2010, we opened our computer lab, which was funded by Irish donors.   It is still going well and lessons are offered to the parents.
