In 2017, North Lanarkshire Council pledged £2 million to the school as part of a modernisation scheme to develop more facilities for the school. This funding was used to open a multi-use games area at the rear of the school during the session of the 40th anniversary of the school.
In the mediaEdit
The school was featured in the Scottish Catholic Observer newspaper and website after a group of staff and pupils embarked on a pilgrimage to Cofton Park, Birmingham to attend the beatification mass of the school's namesake.
In February 2013, Cardinal O'Brien visited the school to bless a large set of Rosary beads to launch the Mission Matter Rosary Campaign.
