Keep St Marys High School Wellington Open

St Marys High School Wellington NSW is potentially being closed in 2020. Community consultation is being undertaken to on 28 March and 8 April to work on opportunities to keep the High School open and to gain an understanding of how potential closure would affect existing students and the wider Wellington Community. 

If the High School was to close this would force families wishing to continue with a Catholic education to have to travel to surrounding Towns such as Dubbo (50km away), Orange (100km away) or Mudgee (100km away).

Small rural communities need diversity in Schools as it encourages families to live and engage in those communities, keeping them vibrant and strong. Take away a School and you risk losing the families to these larger Cities, weakening these rural communities.

We want the Executives of the Bathurst Catholic Education Diocese to know that the Wellington Community supports the continuation of St Marys High School keeping Wellington a strong rural community.
