It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school.
I trust your association with our wonderful school will be rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable for your family and especially for your child.
Our school is an integral part of St. Brigid's Parish. Catholic values and traditions are taught in a formal religious education program and are a guide for all that we do throughout the school.
Our core task is education. Our staff devote their classroom time to the tasks of teaching and learning. Assessment and reporting are ongoing features of our curriculum.
While we strive to work in partnership with our families, we recognise that parents are the main and prime educators of their children. It is our aim, therefore, to strengthen and support you, as parents, in the quality education of your child. It is certainly our privilege to work with you and to share this responsibility of helping your child prepare for the future.
We recognise that each child is unique and has a right to develop his/her individual talents, especially in developing meaningful relationships with God and with fellow human beings. St. Mary’s is a Catholic school where parents and teachers strive together to develop the full potential of each child spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
Our school needs the support of all parents. Each has his or her unique contribution to make: some special quality that can help build a community that really cares for children. We hope that you will experience a sense of warmth and welcome and that there will be a rich sharing of ideas, talents and enthusiasm as together we go about our work of helping our children to learn and grow.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Mr Luke Wilson
