The Board of Trustees approved the new boundary for grade 9 students at St. Mary’s Sexsmith.

Starting in September for the 2023-2024 school year, students from St. Mary’s Catholic School will be bussed to St. John Paul II Catholic School for their grade 9 academic year.

Principal Laura Tapson explained the benefits of this move, allowing our students more educational opportunities and resources and access to a Faith-based education from Kindergarten to grade 12.
