We have recently moved into our amazing new state of the art school building. It incorporates the latest educational technologies, classrooms and specialist rooms including indoor and outdoor amenities and is a fantastic facility for the students of the school and indeed, for the town of Dundalk.
It is such an exciting time for the staff, students and parents of St. Mary’s College as the wonderful new facilities enable us to broaden our curriculum and introduce new subjects and initiatives. See more details here and see how the building of our new school progressed here
