Welcome to St. Mary’s Catholic High School, Dubai.
I feel honoured to move ahead into the role of Principal, after devotedly serving St. Mary’s school community as Vice Principal from 2008 onwards.
We, at St. Mary’s, aim to give the best education to every student in our care, preparing them for life beyond school, as global citizens. As you walk through the hallways you will notice enthusiastic students and get a feel of the vibrancy, strength and diversity of our wider school community. The St. Mary’s family is a ‘melting pot’ much like that of Dubai-a cosmopolitan and multi ethnic community where respect and tolerance thrive.
Our theme for this academic year ‘Make Happiness Happen’ aims to encourage our students to love and respect every aspect of life. We want to nurture in them a deep sense of value for the gift of life and for the wider world they live in such that they will work zealously to protect their immediate environment and understand the importance of sustaining our planet for future generations. It all begins with little steps and we would like them to start right here at school.
We expect high standards in all that we do at our School. We encourage our students to aim high in academics, to work hard and to be sensitive to the rights and needs of others.
St. Mary’s High School, is a ‘Learning community’ which encourages staff, students and parents to identify with the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Achievement and Cooperation (www.smgeducation.com) while being actively involved in all aspects of school life. Do browse our photo gallery to get a better perspective on the unique diversity and enthusiastic student life that exists in our school.
I proudly affirm that the St. Mary’s School Community of dedicated teachers, responsible parents and ambitious students are integral partners in driving its success.
