Vision and Mission

St. Mary’s Primary School see learning as an adventure and a journey of endless possibilities, where students are energised to seek meaning and explore questions about the world around them.

 

In partnership with our parents, parish and broader community we contribute to a life-foundation for students that is centred in Jesus Christ and grounded in truth, beauty and love.

 

At the very heart of our school is a desire for each student to excel, across spiritual, physical, cognitive, emotional and social domains.

 

As a learning community we tap into children’s natural curiosity and motivation to learn and create opportunity for deep and rich learning experiences through a process of purposeful, project based and open ended experiences where the children learn through the process of problem solving, creating and collaboration.

 

We support students to grow in virtue and to embrace a view of themselves and the world that leads to peace, justice, and the prospering of the whole of creation.

 

We are a community of learners who:

• honour the sacred dignity of each person.

• embrace difference and diversity.

• build a culture of learning together.

• honour equitable access and opportunity for all.

• search for truth.

• engage with the deep questions of life.

• commit to achieving the best in ourselves.

• make a difference in the world.

 

We strive to work together, fostering respect for all and developing the whole child in a challenging, positive and caring environment.

 

As learners we:

• wonder

• persevere

• believe

• create

 

Acting with:

• respect

• responsibility

• resilience.
