Parent Involvement

Parents at School.


At St. Mary's Catholic School, we value the support of parents across the range of school life. This includes management, maintenance and fund raising through the School Board and Parents & Friends Association. The fund raising that takes place in the school is vital for providing the necessary resources for student learning. This can include information technology, reading material, play equipment and the general upkeep of the school grounds and facilities.

Parents are also invited to assist by supporting teachers in the classroom on a regular or casual basis. Helping with excursions, sports (coaches, managers, transport) and sporting events run by the school. Please speak to your child’s teacher about how you can help.

Parents are always welcome at activities organised by the school, and we encourage you to be involved in school events whenever possible.

What the community says about our school......

St Mary's Parish Primary school has a rich history of nearly 180 years of continuous primary education in Victoria. The strong connection to the Williamstown community, inclusive and supportive approach to teaching and learning, and active family involvement are central to what makes our school unique.

I am so grateful for the care giving to my boys

St Mary’s has a gorgeous school community of children, parents and absolutely fabulous teachers that are caring and committed to learning.

St Mary’s Primary School is a wonderful school with a amazing community and stuff behind it. I can’t recommend this school enough.

The wonderful teaching staff and support staff, the relaxed atmosphere, welcoming and informative front desk, buddy systems within the school, the parent committee who are forever supporting the school and coming up with creative ideas on how to raise funds and improve the school continually

The office staff are always so helpful
