St Mary’s College is a Catholic co-educational secondary school in the Edmund Rice tradition, located across two campuses in East St Kilda and Windsor, Victoria.
We aspire to excellence in learning, acting with compassion and justice, and inspiring one another to shape a better world for all.
We believe that respect is the basis of all our relationships with ourselves, each other and the earth.
My son is currently in Year 8 at St Mary's and we have found it to be a supportive, progressive and community minded school. We had intended on a single-sex school for our sons' education but the opportunity to be part of an inner city school redefining itself has been really exciting and has made us re-think the experience we are wanting our sons to have in high school.
We are looking forward to our sons being part of a school with a rich history that which will retain the best traditions of both CBC and PCW as well as having this unique opportunity to be able to create new traditions appropriate for current times and into the future.
As a parent of three girls coming to the reimagined school, I’m looking forward to a school whose focus is upon the immediate school and greater community. An education that is not only focused upon academia but on developing the whole child. A school that caters to each child's qualities, abilities and interests. A school that is committed to providing an inclusive learning environment with the greatest respect for all who attend.
I feel very privileged to be part of the reimagined school, knowing all the hard work that has gone into bringing it about. My family are looking forward to 2021. This school will be I’m sure the flagship of EREA.
I have been very pleased with the amount of consultation and frequency of communication around the changes happening. I am really looking forward to seeing how the reimagining takes place and what positive impacts welcoming girls to the school will have. Our third son will attend and it has been a point both his older brothers have lamented - the lack of girls at the school.
Participating in the recent survey I was amazed that the models being chosen to manage the new environment were all the models I would have chosen myself. We look forward to see how much the new environment contributes to our youngest son and his enjoyment of the latter part of his secondary schooling. I will be encouraging him to participate wholeheartedly, in whatever way he can, to both benefit from and support his new learning community.
