Welcome to the St. Mary’s Primary School website. St. Mary’s Primary School is a faith-filled community, centred on the person of Jesus and guided by Gospel values. Within our community, we are committed to fostering the holistic development in each student, to enable them to reach their full potential.
The first school in Inglewood was run by the churches under the Denominational Board.
The second school established was Roman Catholic, also under the Denominational Board in a chapel near the present Town Hall. It was opened on 10th September 1860 and as at January 1862, 131 children were enrolled. When the next Catholic Church was erected, on the site of the present one, this also served as a school until St Mary's Sacred Heart Convent was established in 1907.
We warmly welcome all our prospective students to St. Mary’s and encourage enrolments all throughout the year, in any year level.
Children are eligible for enrolment into Prep if they turn five years of age by the end of April in the year in which they will start school. This is a government regulation that influences the funding of students at school.
