We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.
POSM Parents of St Mary’s
We are a family-friendly school committed to collaboration and partnership with our parents and the wider community. The Parents and Friends partnership known as POSM is essential, highly valued and represented in a variety of ways including fundraising, hospitality, reading groups and excursion support.
School Advisory Council
The School Advisory Council is a forum made up of the principal, parish priest, regional consultant from the Catholic Education Office and parents. The council consults, listens and seeks feedback and wisdom from the school and parish community so that these communities work together to achieve common goals. It provides feedback, support and advice to the principal.
Our canteen—Miss Michelle’s Tuckshop—features delicious foods which are cooked on site every day and enjoyed by all. Miss Michelle is an industry trained chef and she keeps a healthy canteen for all students. Orders can be placed in the class lunch tub, or in person before school each morning.
Before School, After School and Vacation Care
A before and after school and vacation care program operates through St Mary’s Out Of School Hours School-Care Inc (SMOOSH).
All school clothing items are purchased from PSW (Primary School Wear) at Kingsford. A second hand clothing store operates from the school.
