About St Mary’s – Our Vision

St Mary’s is a contemporary Catholic school which has been serving the Bellingen Community for over a century. At St Mary’s 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.

We have high expectations of all students. Each student is known so that our teachers can deliver 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.
