Our Mission Statement…


Let it be known to all who enter SMT that Jesus Christ is the reason for our school.

In Saint Martin of Tours School, as in all Catholic schools,

children and young people can experience learning and living fully

in the Light of the Gospel Message.

We relate all human culture to the Good News of Salvation,

so that the Life of Faith will illumine the knowledge that students gradually gain

of the world, of life and of all humankind.


These are some of the Happy Faces you see on a typical day at SMT
