St Mary’s is a contemporary Catholic school which has been serving the Bellingen Community for over a century. At St Mary’s the unique dignity of each and every child is respected and valued. St Mary’s puts the student at the centre of all we do.

We have high expectations for all students. Our teachers work together to deliver high impact instruction at exactly the right time and point of need. We provide a quality education that is both purposeful & personalised, rich in curriculum and designed to enable all students to experience success as they move along the continuum of learning; building confidence, optimism and faith in themselves and the future.

Catholic schools strive to be spiritual, reflective and respectful sharing places. We see education as a partnership between parents, families, parish, community and the school.

Our Vision

“Learning That Lasts a Lifetime” is the vision
for learning that captures the spirit of education at St Mary’s Bellingen.

We believe that all children can learn to high levels in a Christ- centred, inspiring and nurturing learning environment given quality instructions, time and support.
