Principal's Message

Welcome to St Mary’s, Rydalmere.

A very warm welcome to the St Mary’s Primary School family and visitors to our website. It is our hope that your association with our school and parish community is a long and happy one in the years to come.

All families who enrol their child at St Mary’s enter into an educational partnership with their child, that involves the family, our staff and the wider parish community.

Our purpose, as a Catholic Primary School in the Rydalmere Community, is to provide a learning environment where all members feel welcomed, cared for and supported. In this way, we will communicate the message of God's love for all people through our actions and example.

We draw our values from the teachings of Jesus Christ as lived through our Catholic tradition, and as such, stress the following:

* love and forgiveness as a foundation for effective learning, quality relationships and personal growth
* honest open communication, leading to justice in everyday interactions
* the uniqueness of each person, acceptance of each other and celebration of differences
* a learning environment which nurtures independent, discerning and critical thinkers.

Our School Motto is CARE - Care Always, Respect Everyone. This motto is upheld by students, staff and parents. It forms the basis for all of our daily interactions.

For those who join the St Mary's community, it is an exciting and significant point in your child’s life, and the beginning of your relationship with our school. We hope this relationship will deepen and grow along with your child's religious, academic and social development.

On behalf of the staff, Fr Peter and the entire school community, we welcome you to explore our website and what St Mary's has to offer your child. It is our dream that all who associate with our school community, will be filled with happy memories and wonderful experiences that support your hopes and your child's educational life.

Please do not hesitate to contact our school for more information.
