St Mary's Catholic School

Principal's Welcome

On behalf of our School and Parish community, welcome to the St Mary’s Catholic School website.  Our school is located in the beachside community of Bowen in North Queensland and provides classes from Prep to Year 6.  We also value and support early learning through our birth to five “St Mary’s Mums and Munchkins Program”.

The Gospel values of compassion, justice and outreach underpin all that we do.   We are a warm and welcoming inclusive school community where we believe all students have the right to grow to their full potential in a safe and caring environment.  Our school community has high expectations, whereby we challenge each child to flourish and to reach their God-given potential.

All staff at St Mary’s Catholic School are highly dedicated, enthusiastic, experienced and committed to the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and social needs of the learners.  We help our students to feel confident in their abilities so they learn to view themselves as valued members of a community.

Our diverse and dynamic curriculum caters for all and the design of the school day incorporates clear and structured learning times. We offer a range of opportunities including student leadership, swimming programs, specialist subjects in PE, The Arts and Technology.  Our school has a strong community presence through our Community Outreach program.   

We value, support and nurture partnerships with parents/guardians in the everyday education of their children.  We hold strong beliefs that these partnerships should be founded on mutual respect, cooperation, communication and involvement.  It is an enormous privilege to work with parents/ guardians as the primary educators in our Catholic school context. 

We hope that you enjoy exploring our website and encourage you to contact our school for further information or to arrange a tour, so that you can experience the warm, caring and nurturing environment that St Mary’s Catholic School provides.
