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.
