  • St Malachy School reviewed by a parent

    My granddaughter has been a student at St Malachy for the past two years. I am/was in love with this school. However, a constant cause of concern has always been the administrative assistant Mary Holmes. It has always made me uneasy that Mary, who has children in the school and close ties to the geographical local community wields so much power in the school. She does so with an uneducated hand, and the in place administration seems to cower under her rule. And maybe that would be okay IF she wasn't a bar-hopping idiot who hangs out with lesbians who threaten to jump a parent after school. Can you believe my beef with her started from me offering to volunteer to bring a black history event to the school??? The white teachers at this school stay amused with the drama she creates and I am wholeheartedly discouraged and my granddaughter will not return to what I found to be a lovely school that has no vision beyond Mary and her antics.
