For Parents


At St Mary’s Primary School we recognise that parents/carers are the first educators of their children. We encourage a productive partnership with our parents/carers to ensure the best possible outcome for your children.

We welcome parental involvement in our school. Parents/carers may assist in the classroom, on excursions and at special events. All parent/carer helpers are required to complete a Volunteers Declaration Form.

Further support for those wishing to work as parent helpers is offered through workshops that are run regularly throughout the school year.

School Hours
It is very important for your child’s learning that he or she arrives at school on time. Students are required to be at school by 8.30am. Students who arrive after 9.00am are required to sign in at the School Office before proceeding to their class.

Classes finish at 2:50pm for all students. Students who need to leave before 2:50pm must be signed out via the School Office by an adult.

School Newsletter
The fortnightly Newsletter is our main form of communication with parents. The Newsletter is sent home vis email and will keep you up-to-date with what is happening within our school and in the wider field of education.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ It can also be accessed here.
