Principal's Welcome

St Mary’s Bellingen is a contemporary Catholic learning community where the unique dignity of each and every child is respected and valued. St Mary’s puts the student at the centre of all we do.

Every student is expected to achieve and all teaching is directed to that aim. Assessment of learning and for learning is essential so that our students are given high impact instruction at exactly the right time and point of need. We provide a quality education that is both purposeful & personalised, rich in curriculum and designed to enable all students to experience success as they move along the continuum of learning, building confidence, optimism and faith in themselves and the future.

Catholic schools strive to be spiritual, reflective and respectful sharing places. We see education as a partnership between parents, families, parish, community and the school.

“Learning That Lasts a Lifetime” is the vision for learning that captures the spirit of education at St Mary’s Bellingen. The quality of contemporary education grounded in the values of faith permeates all we do and gives our students a great foundation for learning and life.
