As per our sunsmart policy, wearing of school hats is compulsory in Terms 1 and 4.

Open Days

At St. Mary's we have school open days twice a year, early in Term 2 during Catholic Education Week and in the 2nd last week of Term Two. If these times are not convenient families can make an appointment and visit the school at a time that suits them.

In the 4th Term we also have a series of transition days where new Foundation students visit the school to become familiar with the school's surroundings.
