Parish and Community

At St Margaret Mary’s we strive to make a positive difference in our world. Our outreach activities include raising money for Caritas Australia through Project Compassion, contributing to the St Vincent de Paul Winter and Christmas Appeals and supporting the Cana Community.

Each week a group of students visit the residents of Mt St Joseph Nursing Home, which is situated behind the school and run by the Little Sisters of the Poor.

We welcome the local community and the extended school families to events such as Open Day and Grandparents’ Day. We celebrate, as a whole school community, with Mass for events such as beginning the year, Catholic Schools Week, Mothers’ Day, Feasts of the Sacred Heart and St Margaret Mary, Thanksgiving and Year 6 Graduation.

Our Family Educator organises a range of activities to invite families to share and grow in their faith, such as Family Mass on the third Sunday of the month and weekly playgroup and reflection times.

The sacramental program is a home-based program supported by the school and parish.
