The Open Day started after lunch with a presentation of prizes and certificates. Over 35 parents/relatives attended the ceremony and then had an opportunity to go round all the classrooms looking at the resources we use, attractive displays that both pupils and staff had worked hard to produce and their children's work. They also had an opportunity to talk to the teachers about their child's progress.

Every child was given a T shirt with the school logo and these were worn for the first time on the Open Day. Pupils will keep their T shirts and wear them on any special school occasions. The school also has a stock of polo shirts and fleeces with the school badge that will be offered for sale to pupils and friends of St Mary's school. The logo with the motto 'Wider Horizons' was designed by Kimberley Green and Leo Glass who are currently in Class 5.
