Latest News from St Mary’s Boyup Brook
Week 2 - Friday August 2
Welcome to a fresh new term at St Mary’s. I hope everyone enjoyed lots of family time over the past holidays. It is so important to break the routine during school holidays and focus on the here and now with children when they have time off. I really enjoyed hearing students’ stories about where they went, who they visited and what they got up to over the break. It was also really special to see the students so happy to see one another on the first day back.
Teaching and Learning update
As a staff we have been very busy since the holiday break.. We used the first Monday of the term to work together to do some planning for the second half of the year. We’ve had two vitally important staff meetings in the first two weeks of school, one was used as a refresher in First Aid, mainly around asthma and allergies and the other one was around how we track students progress in learning.
Our uniform is a source of great pride within our school and when worn properly it looks fantastic: its one of the things that sets us apart as a school.
Updates and Improvements During the Holidays
As always: the holidays are used to refresh the school, clean and tidy the place as well as ensure the students have something new to come back to. Over the holidays we had some plumbers come to look at drainage around the school to sort out the puddling issues we’ve been having for years- hopefully a solution is in sight.

Growing Through Christ
It is a pleasure to welcome you to St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School. St Mary’s is a dynamic, nurturing and vibrant learning co-educational Primary School catering for 67 students from K-6.
The school was founded in 1957 and staffed by the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary until 1990. The School motto ‘Growing Through Christ’ describes the endeavour to lead students through an integration of faith, life and learning.
St Mary’s Catholic School is highly regarded within Boyup Brook and the surrounding district due to dedicated staff, a supportive Parish and an extremely supportive, active parent community. Together, all this helps to create a vibrant, family centred school, which focuses on a commitment to excellence.
