St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Catriona Melly

A tree has been planted in the car park area - a pink blossom tree - in memory of Catriona Melly, who was a pupil.  Sadly, Catriona died aged 12 years.  When people pass by the school, they should see a strong tree growing each year and think about a very caring child who loved life.  There was a short service this week and many people attended.  Some of her friends, who are now at St Thomas More Catholic Comprehensive, planted bulbs underneath the tree which should add another splash of colour - something Catriona would really approve of as she so enjoyed her art.
