Welcome to St Mary’s Primary School

 St Mary’s Catholic Primary School is a single stream co-educational primary school, with a current enrolment of 265 students from Kindergarten (2 years before Yr 1) to Year 6, serving the parish community of Bunbury. St Mary’s offers an holistic education, embracing the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of all students.

The school caters for all students’ individual needs, offering literacy and numeracy support across all years. The use of Information Technology is integrated into the learning process and social/ emotional programs are in place to support the development of resiliency and interpersonal skills.

Inter-house and inter-school competitions are held in athletics, swimming and winter sports, and the students have the opportunity to participate in music and performing arts competitions, locally and in Perth.

St Mary’s has developed a strong sense of community where school, parents and the parish work together to provide for the needs of students.  There is strong parental involvement in the life of the school.

The model of education offered at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School is founded on Gospel Values and encourages students to aspire to our Motto – Respect, Faith Courage – in all facets of their lives.

St Mary’s, in partnership with the Parish, is a community focusing on the development of Faith, enhancing the dignity of the individual and fostering the seeking of truth.
