Home & School Secretary
We ask for God’s blessing on St. James Parish
Lord, grant us the will to work together,
The wisdom to listen to each other’s views,
And the insight to plan together, in recognition of our role in supporting one another.
Help us to build St. James School as one that supports the development of each individual child,
Offers a stimulating working environment for staff
And provides a focus for the local community.
Let our school become an example of Christian witness in our world
And Christian roots in our community.
