Respect Reconciliation Faith Service
St Mary's Catholic School is a place where we live by the teachings and values of Jesus Christ. The School was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph and in 2013 we celebrated 100 years of the Sisters being involved in Catholic schools.
At St Mary's Catholic School we aim to develop a passion for learning through quality teaching and a balanced yet diverse range of learning experiences. Within our caring and nurturing atmosphere, Catholic values are taught and lived, and a concern for others is expected. We encourage and foster a love of learning and strive for excellence within a quality learning environment.
Our school motto is "Do whatever Jesus tells you". The motto aims to enhance the Catholic Character of the school and also make it easier for the children to understand and use in the daily conversations at school. It is very clear that although these words were spoken with compassion by Mary, there is also a very clear message in it and that is to consider what Jesus wants us to do and to listen to His instructions and do it.
We actively encourage as many children as possible to participate in our Sacramental programme. We also provide the opportunity to Catholic children from other schools to join our programme to complete the journey to Confirmation.
We encourage our children to live and display our school values - Respect, Reconciliation, Faith, and Service.
