Welcome to St Mary's Parish Primary School

St. Mary’s school is a place where, not only your child, but your whole family will be welcomed and valued as members of our community. At St. Mary’s we are acutely aware of the privilege it is to be invited into the educative process of your child. We recognize that your child is a special gift given to you, and now you are inviting and entrusting us to enter into a partnership with you, to guide and support their growth as a person along with their academic learning.

    Dear Parents and Friends, In our first Candela of the year, I informed you that WELCOME is our Term 1 value. Over the coming months, I would like to share with you the principles of “Welcome” that have been developed by the Welcoming Committee of our Parish. These principles are a guide to support us to be people who truly take on a deep sense of welcome, to be people who welcome others fully, just as Jesus did. I ask that you take a moment to reflect on each of these principles over the coming months and endeavor to live them out in your interactions with others. The first principle I would like to share is: Recognizing and respecting the realities of people’s lives Do we judge others’ actions without considering that they may be going through a tough time? Do we automatically assume that others see, feel and think as we do? Do we have any idea of the pressures that another person may need to live with due to their particular circumstances? The actions of Jesus in welcoming the outcasts makes it clear that as Christian people, we are called to be welcoming, not only to those who “are like us”, but to all people we meet. Kindest Regards, Helen Principal
