Community events

St Mary's Choir

The school choir have been asked to perform at a number of venues including St Cuthbert’s conference Centre, Buckfastleigh Town Fair, South Brent Parish Church and St Andrew’s Residential Home.  The children received very positive feedback from those who heard the choir sing  -well done to everyone including Mrs Manley and Mrs Kerswell who work with the choir each week.

Buckfastleigh Christmas Fair

St Mary’s Catholic Primary School choir were asked to sing at the Buckfastleigh Christmas fair this year and create their own lantern parade.


Handbell Ringing Workshop

Pupils in Burrator class took part in a workshop organised by a local hand bell group.  The children heard some music performed by the group but also had the chance to try handbell ringing for themselves.  Even the staff decided to join in!


Operation Christmas Child

The school community have supported Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal again this year.  We collected lots of boxes which were sorted by our School Council and Mrs Freeborn and Miss Keir.

Remembrance Day

Two of our pupils represented St Mary’s Catholic Primary School at the Remembrance Day service in Buckfastleigh by laying a wreath on the war memorial as part of the service.
