School Principal’s Welcome
Since 1921, St Mary’s has been proudly educating girls to be the best that they can be. We are committed to nurturing confident and caring young women who embrace opportunities and contribute meaningfully to their community, both at and beyond school.
With a reputation for outstanding academic achievement in an Anglican faith-based environment, St Mary’s is built on the foundations of a caring and inclusive community. Our exceptional staff, who have access to first-class facilities, provide a respectful and supportive learning environment which enables our girls to thrive. Guided by the School’s overarching purpose, to engage hearts and ignite curious minds, our staff are committed to the holistic development of each girl and living our values of aspiration, compassion, courage, integrity and respect.
Discovery is at the heart of the St Mary’s student experience and we encourage all our girls to strive for personal and academic excellence. It is our aim to develop self-aware, adaptable learners who aspire to discover their best with grit and integrity.
Our rich co-curricular program provides outstanding opportunities for students to engage in service activities, outdoor education, surfing and diving programs, drama, dance, debating music, sport and so much more. We encourage our girls to participate in these activities so that they develop essential skills, such as critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication and self-confidence, which will help them to succeed in life after school.
As the tenth Principal of St Mary’s, I am proud to lead this wonderful school into its next century of discovery.
