A School For All

Principal's Message

St Mary's College Melbourne Principal, Terry Blizzard

Welcome to St Mary’s College.   

We are a school for all, welcoming, nurturing and empowering all students. 

St Mary’s College is a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition. Previously called
CBC St Kilda, our name and vision have changed as we embrace an authentically inclusive
co-education for girls and boys.   

While we have changed our name, we have not changed our values, our strong community, our history and our quality learning programs.

We partner with our families to instil a deep sense of respect, justice and belonging in our students that transcends the classroom. Everything we do to teach and support students is built on the fabric of love, values, beliefs and habits each family instils throughout their child’s life and we welcome the involvement of parents and families in our school community. 

Our education occurs through a moral and social lens. Our social justice programs, pastoral, creative, sporting and academic pursuits and the well-designed learning programs are all tailored for the unique and differing needs of junior, middle and senior school students. We educate our students to be good people who can add value to the world they enter when they leave our school. 

We look forward to providing your child with a caring and supportive environment where every student has a place and a voice. Our innovative learning and wellbeing programs aligned with mutually respectful relationships enable each student’s intrinsic worth to shine. Preparing students for life beyond school, our programs enable students of diverse abilities to step purposefully into their future.  

I invite you to be part of our school community. The information in the following pages provides an introduction to our school, but I encourage you to come and visit to see what makes our school special.
