St Mary’s Primary School is a Catholic coeducational school that provides quality education for each Child. The Catholic school, as part of the parish, serves to educate the child both academically and spiritually.
At St Mary’s we believe parents play a crucial part in the education of their children and welcome their active involvement and participation in the life of the school and the educational programs offered.
The staff at St. Mary's work in partnership with parents to nurture each child's development. They guide, support and assist the children in their care in every possible way.
At St Kevin’s, we view the education of your child as a partnership - a joint responsibility between the school and home. Our programs are linked to each child’s personal ability, and not simply age expectation.
Each and every child will progress developmentally according to his or her interest in learning, ability and potential to learn, the skills developed and the encouragement, support and assistance provided by teachers and families. We will strive to provide a happy, supportive and secure learning environment. We shall keep you informed on school life, interviews, information nights and other opportunities as they arise by way of the School newsletter.
The purpose of a Catholic primary school is to give your child a foundation of faith, values, knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for lifelong learning.
