St Margaret Mary’s is blessed with a vibrant and supportive school community committed to working in partnership to ensure its students are happy and motivated learners. Our dedicated teaching staff work to provide a rich and diverse curriculum focused on developing the whole child- academically, spiritually and socially. We offer a variety of opportunities for children to discover and pursue their talents, including an extensive sports program, and a variety of experiences in the Arts and Technology. Our children are encouraged to engage with the world: to question, take risks, reflect, critique, analyse and act. We aim to empower our students to be independent, assertive and active members of the community, while offering a nurturing environment that caters for the diverse needs of every child.
St Margaret Mary’s school began in 1954 with 76 students who were accommodated in the church/school building in Reed Street. In 1958, a spacious new building was commenced. In 1998, an extensive refurbishment program was undertaken to upgrade and extend our school facilities and was completed in 2000. Since then a multi-purpose gathering and learning space and an ICT lab has been constructed to ensure a contemporary learning environment. The school currently has 163 students across 7 classrooms and a staff of 23, included in this is a new leadership team led by Principal Andrew Leighton who began in 2010.
