Parent Handbook

Welcome from the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                                             

The fundamental commitment of St Mary's is to the growth and development of the whole child, embedded in the teachings of Jesus Christ. St Mary's aims to provide each child a solid educational foundation for their future. We also aim to extend children's educational experiences through a variety of cultural, sporting and academic pursuits.

 Together we can work to provide our children an education that will nurture their growth and open their eyes to their potential and the possibilities this can provide.  Each child is unique and special and we want them to know this, to explore this and to use their giftedness to better themselves and their community.

 Our school fosters faith in God, respect and care for each other and a genuine love for the world in which we live.  St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School is inclusive in nature and accepts students and families from Catholic families as well as families of other faith traditions.  All members in our community are expected to support and respect the school’s ethos.

 Within these pages you will find an outline of the school's policies, procedures and regulations, giving you a small insight into our community.

I look forward to working with you and your family during the time you spend with us at St Mary's Catholic Primary School.
