Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the St Mary’s Catholic Primary School website. I invite you to tour our website to discover the many elements that combine to make our school a vibrant, contemporary learning community. You will gain an insight into what we do and how we work with our students to continually develop their knowledge, experiences and understandings of our world.

Partnerships are encouraged between teachers, students, families and the wider community to challenge our students and enlighten their learning. The school is enriched by a committed parent body, and is strongly supported by our dedicated Parish Priest Monsignor Stuart Hall. The children at St Mary’s have a strong connectedness to their school and there is a high level of engagement and achievement. We embrace a shared responsibility, based on Gospel values, for the wellbeing of each member of our community.

St Mary’s is recognised as a place of quality teaching and learning, with a strong community spirit. St Mary’s is a school with an innovative and dedicated staff who have a commitment, and whole school approach to transforming pedagogy and building a rigorous curriculum that prepares our students for life-long learning. We strive to give our students a deep sense of connectedness to the local and global worlds in which they live.

St Mary’s school is a place where we challenge ourselves and others, and communicate our optimism and confidence in the potential of our students. We have a dynamic, supportive and safe work environment, which inspires a climate of mutual respect, collegiality, trust and support.
