St Mary's Primary School Mansfield

We warmly welcome you to our website. We hope that you find your browsing experience to be both informative and engaging. We aim to provide visitors with a reliable insight into what we, at St. Mary’s, value and believe about contemporary education and nurturing children through their primary school years.

In a nutshell, we hope that you will see that we believe all children are entitled to a world-class education that prepares them for a world yet to be imagined. With access to the latest educational research and armed with the most powerful learning tools ever invented, our dedicated teachers passionately and lovingly cultivate a learning environment that feeds and grows the hearts, minds and souls of every student in our care.

It is a privilege to be part of this community and as Principal, each day I witness the love, commitment and hopes that each parent carries for their child. Parents are the first educators of their children and it is they who are the consistent influence in their lives. We, as teachers, journey with you in supporting your child’s development by providing a safe learning environment.

We aim to work in partnership with you, in nurturing their development, by taking a genuine interest in their well-being to guide, support and assist their holistic development. The teachers at St Mary’s School are professional, dedicated and resolute in ensuring that each child attains their full potential.  Co-operation, respect and shared responsibility are values fostered throughout our school.

Our learning and teaching is based on contemporary learning styles and resources. Teachers work collaboratively to plan an engaging and differentiated curriculum, in a supportive and caring environment, that is centered on the individual needs, learning styles and interests of the students.

We are blessed to have a dedicated staff, supportive parents, a welcoming school and parish community, an engaging Parish Priest and friendly and cooperative students, who are interested in learning.

As a Catholic school, we are committed to an education that is centered on the Gospel message of Christ. We work in unison with our parish leaders and parents, in promoting values and ideas that are central to our Christian beliefs.

Principal of St Mary's Mansfield


Hi, my name is Maggie Mae and I am the St. Mary’s School Therapy Dog. I am 8 years old and have been working here for 7 years. I arrive at 8.30am and get picked up at 3.15pm each day.


I am here to provide emotional support, companionship and well-being support for all our children.


I have found that since walking in and out of classrooms we have seen a wide range of benefits that can improve the learning environment for students and teachers alike.


Plus the staff think I’m a very cute employee and give the BEST cuddles.

“The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog”.
