I am delighted to join the St Mary's Community and look forward to leading the School into the future, as together we support, teach and nurture our girls into discovering their best.

For almost 100 years, St Mary’s has been proudly educating girls to be the best they can be. We are committed to nurturing confident and caring young women who embrace opportunities and contribute meaningfully to their community, both within and beyond school.

With a reputation for outstanding academic achievement in an Anglican faith-based environment, St Mary’s is a caring and inclusive community. Our highly qualified and professional staff are supported by excellent facilities and provide a warm and supportive learning environment to enable our girls to thrive. Discovery is at the heart of the St Mary’s student experience, and our staff are faithfully committed to the holistic development of each girl. Importantly, we recognise that at the heart of happiness is knowing yourself, understanding others, and being a good human being. We aim to develop the unique qualities of our students while encouraging them to strive for personal excellence.

A rich extra-curricular program provides outstanding opportunities for students to engage in service activities, outdoor education, surf and diving programmes, drama, dance, debating, music and sport. These activities assist in developing essential 21st Century skills such as critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication and self-confidence, and we encourage our girls to engage and actively participate in these opportunities.

As the 10th Principal of St Mary’s, I am charged with a special responsibility to instil in our girls a love of life-long learning and to guide them towards a future full of happiness, confidence and opportunity. I look forward to welcoming you to St Mary’s to explore the possibilities.

Mrs Judith Tudball
