Vision Statement

St Mary’s School is a Catholic School for the children of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish.

St Mary’s is a place where relationships are prized in the Spirit of the Josephite tradition. Under the inspiration of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop, we are committed to the belief that everyone is treated with fairness and has the opportunity for a quality education in a faith filled environment.

At St. Mary’s our life and our aims are centered on Jesus Christ. As a Christ centred education community we believe St Mary’s:

  • Is a Catholic community where Gospel values, beliefs and traditions are lived and celebrated in our daily lives.
  • Aspires to provide an engaging and challenging learning environment where all participants will be given the opportunity to succeed.
  • Recognises Justice, Compassion, Reconciliation, Inclusiveness, Love, Respect and Community as the essence of our relationships with God, each other and the earth.
  • Is a community which strives to foster the leadership qualities of each individual.
  • Endeavours to provide a school environment which is safe, welcoming, progressive and sustainable.
  • Aspires to develop excellence, responsibility and global perspectives of citizenship.

We at St Mary's Catholic Primary School acknowledge Australian democratic values.  We are committed to the principles of freedom of religion, freedom of speech and association, equal rights for all, the values of openness and tolerance, the rule of the law and elected govenment.
