Our Mission is to:
Provide a Catholic Education which encourages all students to realise their full potential in the family, community and society.

Our school vision calls us in our learning to:

“Strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, walk in his footsteps and be his voice in the community.”

We believe that in order to achieve our vision we need to teach, foster and daily live out the following values at St Mary’s School.
