St Mary’s Parish School has the gospel of Jesus Christ at its heart. Our educators seek to live out their response to the gospel with the same faith, hope and love that Mary did. Like Mary, we seek to be compassionate, welcoming and understanding to all.
Religious Education is a fundamental learning area for our school as we are a Catholic school community. We are fortunate to have a resident Parish Priest and pride ourselves on the strong relationship we have with our Parish.
St Mary’s Parish School will not only offer your child the educational view about Religious Education but we also offer our students the opportunity to attend Mass throughout the term and to actively experience being Catholic. All students at St Mary’s Parish School are provided with the real life experiences which deepen their understanding and commitment to their faith.
The school actively encourages families to participate in the life of St Mary’s Parish. Parents and parishioners are always invited and encouraged to celebrate together at Liturgies and Masses.
We acknowledge that a number of our students are from various other religions and in our teachings we share the stories from others and learn to respect their beliefs within our Catholic School. St Mary’s Parish School values the cultural diversity within the community. It is important to understand that when enrolling at our school all students are expected to be active participants in our daily routines such as prayer, rituals and religious education lessons.
