Our School

Mary Immaculate Parish was established in 1980 with Fr. Neville as Parish Priest. The evolving pilgrimage of a Faith Community has been directed by the efforts and guidance of diocesan priests and sisters of the Dominican Congregation. Throughout the journey, significant steps have been taken in striving to build a parish home where the spiritual and temporal needs of some 11 000 Catholics of the Bossley Park area have been met. Our Parish Priest is Fr Sebastian Savarimuthu. Fr Nards, who is the Filipino Chaplain for NSW, also assists when available.

As pilgrim people, the motivation for all has been the desire to translate the Gospel message into daily reality, which is reflected in the Faith Community motto Striving To Be “A Loving, Caring Christian Community".

Mary Immaculate Primary School which was established in 1985, is an integral agent in fostering the vision of the Faith Community. The school commenced in 1985 with 79 students, with Mrs Dorothy Faulder as Principal. Mr Tony Logue led the school community as Principal between 1992 and 1997. Mr Christopher Paton was appointed Acting Principal for 1998 and Ms Jeanne Pestana took up her appointment as Principal in 1999. In 2015, we welcomed Mr John Barton as Principal and in Term 4 2018, Mrs Lisa Wahab commenced her principalship at Mary Immaculate Primary School.  Since then the school has responded to the increasing population demands for Catholic Education by providing classrooms to accommodate 666 children of 447 families as at October 2018.

Through the generous and faith-filled support of parents, and the talents of the dedicated staff of Catholic teachers, the school provides a teaching environment that is committed to excellence and permeated by Christian Values.

There are 21 classrooms at MIPS with adjoining open learning spaces (Green, Blue, Mimosa & Bottero Rooms). In addition, the school has a computer laboratory and laptop trolleys for class use as well as iPads in some classes. There are specialist resource rooms for Reading Recovery and Special Education. The school has undergone major building and refurbishment programs to accommodate the growing needs of the school. All our classrooms are air-conditioned. The school has 3 large undercover areas and also has access to Terone Park for supervised play and PE lessons.

Mary Immaculate employs specialist teachers for Special Education, Reading Recovery, Language Support, Library and PE. The school contracts specialist teachers according to need.

In 2011 our new building, the Fr Peter Neville Hall, was officially blessed and opened as well as completed refurbishments to the Library, Staff Study and Computer Room as part of the Federal Government Building the Educational Revolution (BER) Funding to schools. Air-conditioning was installed in the Hall in 2012.

As the Faith Community responds to the increasing demands of a changing world, by their Baptism and their acceptance of enrolment at Mary Immaculate, all are challenged to participate in sustaining and giving life to the school’s vision. The school community is strengthened by its links with the Parish which is a vital part of what Bossley Park is all about – a community of believers working together to further the gospel and a place where family values, Christian faith, the practice of prayer, tolerance, acceptance and togetherness is fostered.
