We believe that students are entitled to well-balanced, stimulating educational experiences. Our unique learning community allows students to recognize their worth and increase their physical, mental, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual capacity in a safe environment.
We provide quality learning strategies to help all our students recognise and develop to their fullest potential. We influence them to be innovative, creative and resilient regardless of their individual circumstances.
Work Steadily, Study Hard, Aim High.
Our vision is to empower young boys and girls to be effective citizens who are resilient to dynamic global transformation.
To provide a dynamic and collaborative learning environment that seeks to foster and develop the potential of all students, equipping them to be good citizens adaptive to a changing world.
A light in its community
St. Martin’s Mangrove takes its place
Its star- studded achievements
From this land’s history will never be erased
Each life trained here is meant to be a ray
A point of light to a brighter way.
Our dreams, aspirations, accomplishments
Extend beyond a building’s walls.
Our scholars past and present
An image must project
Of citizens of honour
That bring our land respect
We’ll work steadily, study hard, aim high
And with wings of faith soar to the sky.
A better nation we will build
Using our motto as our guide
We’ll teach and learn together
Seeking God’s wisdom as we journey side by side.
The ideals sought, the values here instilled
The friendships made, the dreams fulfilled
Tolerance, compassion, respect for rights
Embody all our school’s intent.
We embrace with pride the time here spent.
May God always bless our school.
