Catholic education helps Catholics to draw the line between ‘being’ and ‘doing.’ Being Catholic is a gift of faith, hope and love; a life-time journey to experience and to live according to the identity that it signifies. Education in Catholic schools which includes a parish community and faith practised in the home – exists to implement a specific educational ideal: to foster a deepening of faith and knowledge to be used to give witness to Christ.Our primary schools help young people form their identidy with community in mind. They foster strong education and academic excellence and form a strong witness to Christ in the community. Please click on one of our schools to direct you to their website for more information.

We believe that learning is a lifelong endeavour and that we can all empower each other to learn. St Mary’s Primary School provides a quality education to boys and girls from Prep to Year 6.
