Nurturing Spirituality and Contemplation

At St Mary’s we gently foster the spiritual dimension of each child by providing opportunities for the children to experience quietness and peace within the busyness of their lives. A focus on meditative prayer, gratitude, kindness, love, hope and forgiveness is emphasised in each classroom. 

Children from a range of faith beliefs participate in an innovative religious education program, Educating in Christ, which is based on the Montessori teaching principles and promotes a hands-on approach that develops a sense of awe and wonder in God’s creation and the Gospel message within a respectful and loving Catholic school.
