St. Mary's College is a Catholic Secondary School committed to creating a respectful, caring, safe, supportive learning environment, rooted in the Christian tradition and having as its aim the holistic education of all its students, encouraging each one to develop her full potential.
School is a place in which you can expect to be safe, happy and work well. These School Rules have been drawn up to help you achieve this. If you find it hard to remember all the rules, just ask yourself "When I do this, am I interfering with someone's right to be safe? With their property? With their right to be happy and to work? Am I putting myself or someone else in danger? Am I being responsible?"
Pupils - especially senior pupils - are encouraged to take on responsibility for their own learning rather than doing their work because of fear of punishment.
