History

The Patron saint of the school is Our Lady of the Assumption. The Feast of the Assumption commemorates Mary's constant fidelity of mind, heart, and body to God's call and reminds us to be relentless in our call to witness Jesus fully alive in our school, in our homes, in our parish, and in our global church. The school was founded in 1893 and has been located at its current site since. Miss Daisy Duffy was the 1st teacher.
