Grace – The St Mary’s Statue
Statue Grace is a life-size statue made up of bronze butterflies which was unveiled in 2016 and has already become an integral part of St Mary’s life.
The girls are often seen congregating around her, as if she is part of their conversations and fun. Grace is a St Mary’s Foundation Trust initiative to change the lives of girls still to come and to continue the school legacy of inspiring girls to become remarkable women. When creating the statue, Helena Vogelzang, the sculptor looked to nature and said “butterflies and girls seemed to perfectly merge as they transition from one state to another.”
