St. Mary's to stage fifth Proms in the Park


St. Mary’s is to stage its summer evening spectacular of music, fireworks and family fun in the town again this summer. For the fifth year in a row, the school will present the Proms in the Park concert at its Blundell Park games field on Little Crosby Road at 7.30pm on Saturday July 4th.
The event - supported by main sponsor National Tyre and Autocare - will feature more than 250 talented young musicians from the college and its preparatory school The Mount. There will also be special guest appearances by the choirs from Great Crosby Catholic Primary School and English Martyrs Catholic Primary School in Litherland. The event will be compered by popular BBC Radio Merseyside personality Roger Phillips and conducted by St. Mary’s Director of Music, Andrew Byers.
The young musicians will play all the old favourites from the famous Last Night of the Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall. These include Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No 1 (Land of Hope and Glory), Jerusalem, the Fantasia on British Sea Songs written by Proms founder Henry Wood and, of course, Rule Britannia.
St. Mary’s Principal, Mike Kennedy, commented, “Music is an essential part of life at St. Mary’s and this annual event is a wonderful showcase for the wealth of talent that exists here. The concert is a rousing way to mark the end of the school year, and performing in the open air in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd is a fantastic experience which our pupils will never forget.”
Ticket prices for the concert are £17.50 for adults, £10 for children or £50.00 for a family ticket (two adults and two children), with entrance free for youngsters under five. A number of sponsorship and hospitality opportunities are also still available, including programme advertising, sponsoring the firework finale and VIP marquee hire.

St. Mary's pays tribute to 'Class of 2015'

DSC 7451
St. Mary’s College held a special event this week to celebrate the achievements of its Upper Sixth Formers who leave the school this summer. The Leavers’ Mass, held in the school’s O’Halloran Hall, was attended by many parents and friends of the students, and included the presentation of awards by former pupil and international development expert, Kieran Cooke.
Kieran - one of five Cooke siblings educated at St. Mary’s - is Partnerships Development Manager with Universal Learning Solutions, a not-for-profit consultancy that helps governments around the world to meet their global education targets. Kieran is taking the lead on an ambitious new strategy to help millions of children around the world to learn to read and write, and spoke to the Sixth Formers about his recent trips to Nepal and Uganda. 
At the leavers’ event students were honoured for their efforts in a wide range of fields including sport, music, drama, outreach, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards and the Combined Cadet Force. It followed a day of fun activities, from balloon displays to practical jokes, and a farewell buffet lunch with their teachers.
Commenting on the event St. Mary’s Principal, Mike Kennedy, said, “The Leavers’ Mass is always an occasion for mixed emotions, and this was very much the case again this year. As always, we are sorry to be losing such an outstanding group of young people, but we know they are ready to move on to the next exciting stage of their lives. We wish them all every success, and look forward to hearing about their achievements in the future. We were particularly pleased to welcome Kieran Cooke to the event, whose career path embodies the principles of Edmund Rice, founder of the Christian Brothers, who created our school in 1919.”
