Facilities

On entering the school, we hope that you will feel as we do, that it is a serious place of learning, set in an environment that is caring and supportive, but most of all fun. St Mary’s is a dynamic and well-resourced school with skilled staff and caters for around 270 students in twelve straight grades. This school has catered for the education of children since 1854. Our tree-scaped grounds provide for a variety of Physical Education Programs and passive pursuits while the Alma Park facilities and oval are use for sporting and recreational activities as well as a safe car parking area for drop-off and picking up of students.

Our school is fenced completely making it extremely secure. The only access during school hours is through the office area where all visitors are issued with clearly identifiable visitors badges. Children have access to modern inside toilets during school times and access to renovated outside toilets for play and lunch times. All rooms are renovated and have heating and air-conditioning for student comfort. The playground has safe and challenging play equipment for all ages.

An extensive transition program ensures a smooth entry into the Prep program from all pre schools and Child Care Centres in the St Kilda, Prahran, Windsor and surrounding areas. This transition Program and a supportive Grade 6 Buddy system ensure your child will quickly form new friendships and make a confident start to primary school life.

The principal has an open-door policy and is available to discuss your child’s needs and progress. St Mary’s provides parents with regular information on their child’s progress by our reporting days, written reports and through constant contact with class teachers and specialist staff. Regular school assemblies, weekly newsletters, class teacher’s newsletters and a school magazine also keep the school community informed of events and social activities.
