Learn By Doing

At St Mary’s we have a strong emphasis on Inquiry-based learning practices. This approach has the student centered around the learning process and asks them to engage with an idea or topic in an active way.

Our P-2 students participate in a weekly Discovery session where students used play based learning and student-led extended projects to help develop their love of creativity, curiousness and problem solving skills.

MACS

Governance

St Mary’s is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them. Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures. 

A Word

From Our Principal

On behalf of the St Mary’s school community I would like to welcome you to our school website. I am very honoured and proud to be the Principal of St Mary’s in Lancefield and Romsey. I was appointed as principal in 2024 and prior to this I was Deputy Principal Diversity & Logistics at St Mary’s from 2020.  I have many years of experience in various other Catholic Education settings across Melbourne and regional areas  in both Primary and Secondary settings.

As a Catholic Community, we are committed to an engaging environment that encourages growth, relationships and the wellbeing of all. As an active learning community, we all aim to be lifelong learners working towards a Common Good.

St Mary’s School’s vision is enacted, promoted and articulated throughout the school & the school community. It is published on the schools website, in the staff and parent handbook and yearly in the annual report to the school community.

Our doors are always open and I invite any community members who may wish to know more about our school to make an appointment to meet with me or take a personalised school tour. This is the best way to showcase our amazing facilities and excellent school climate and culture in person.
