At St. Mary’s Malvern East we are all responsible for being a welcoming, inclusive Catholic community. Through respectful partnerships, we strive for excellence and take action in a contemporary world.

Our school is located behind St Mary’s Church on Manning Road, and has a current enrolment of 190 students, from Foundation to Year Six. In 2018, we celebrated our Centenary, and as such, have a long and proud history of providing excellence in primary school education. 

St Mary’s is recognised as a place of quality teaching and learning, with a strong community spirit. The school is supported by our dedicated Parish Priest, Monsignor Stuart Hall and enriched by a committed parent body. The students at St Mary’s have a strong connectedness to their school and there is a high level of engagement and achievement.

Official Open Days

We hold two Open Days in Term One, usually at the end of February and then again in mid-March.

You can also view our virtual tour by clicking here.  


Enrolment Dates

Enrolment applications are accepted at any time, however the usual timeframe is from February to May, during the year, prior to your child starting in Foundation. Towards the end of April, families will be invited to the school, with their child, for an interview with either the Principal or Deputy Principal. First round offers are then sent to families at the beginning of May, and subsequent rounds are offered when and if applicable. Please see our Enrolment Policy available on our website for more information.


Transition Program

During Term Three, the St Mary’s staff, including Foundation teachers, visit enrolled children at their Kindergartens, to commence the transition process. Early in Term Four, the children are invited to participate in four transition sessions onsite, focusing on a variety of games and activities based on English, Mathematics, STEM and Physical Education. In late November, a Parent Information Night is held, which often includes a guest speaker and focuses on making the transition to school a successful, positive experience for both students and parents.
