Welcome and thank you for visiting our St Mary’s Catholic Primary School website.
St Mary’s is a co-educational school catering for children from Transition to Year 6 where everyone is welcomed, nurtured and encouraged to grow in the footsteps of Christ. St Mary’s is Darwin’s oldest Catholic primary school and the only school within the Darwin CBD, situated adjacent to St Mary’s Star of the Sea Cathedral.
Founded in 1908, St Mary’s has educated generations of children from the local community and beyond. In light of our school motto: “Learning in Faith and Love” our hope for our students is that they are able to recall the Spirit of St Mary’s we hold true here in our community to help them in their life journey.
At St Mary’s we strive to ignite a passion for learning in all students. We believe that we need to equip our students to take their passion combined with knowledge and skills, learning dispositions and moral and ethical frameworks based on the teachings of Jesus, to enter a world beyond school and create their own fulfilling futures.
