About us

St Mary’s Primary School is a Catholic coeducational school that provides quality education for each child. Our Catholic school, as part of our parish, serves to educate the child both academically and spiritually.

At St Mary’s we believe parents play a crucial part in the education of their children and welcome their active involvement and participation in the life of the school and the educational programs offered.

The staff at St. Mary's work in partnership with parents to nurture each child's development. They guide, support and assist the children in their care in every possible way.
