A very warm welcome to the St Mary’s Primary School community website. We are a welcoming, supportive community which aims to provide the very best learning experiences for all students.

Our school is a faith community, which includes our Parish Administrator, Father Joseph Thippabathini, resident Josephite Sister Nellie Versluys, parents, staff, students and others who service us. Our school community is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and Christian values permeate every aspect of school life. St Mary of the Cross’ values are integral to our school life as are the Sandhurst School Values.

St Mary's prides itself on quality teaching and learning, relationship building, community partnerships and living in light of the Gospel.   

St Mary’s staff support parents in what they have begun at home and work in partnership with them to ensure that their child 'learns to love and loves to learn'. St Mary’s staff has the interest of each student at heart, and continually endeavors to see that everything possible is done for the student’s growth and development.

St Mary’s Primary School is committed to providing the best Learning and Teaching environment possible so that all students become life long learners and reach their full potential: spiritually, socially, creatively, emotionally, physically and intellectually.   

We look forward to sharing your child's educational journey.
