Community Connections

St Mary’s values the partnerships between students, families, businesses and schools in our broader community as it can bring mutual benefits and maximise student engagement and achievement.

We network with:

Bellingen Show Committee

Pete’s Place

St Vincent De Paul

Bellingen RSL

Land Care

Oz Green.

Community Events

We organise school events and take part in community events that provide opportunities to showcase students’ talents, raise awareness for local issues or concerns, and extend social networks. These events can help to create a more cohesive community. 

At St Mary’s, we encourage your family to share these experiences with your child.

ANZAC Day March

Remembrance Day

Bellingen Show.

Our School Houses

Students belong to four house teams organised by colour, which are red, blue, green and gold—promoting connections to our Catholic story and a deeper sense of belonging. Houses are used for sporting events, assemblies and gatherings.

Our School Patron

Mary, The Mother of God, Mother of Jesus, wife of St Joseph, and the greatest of all Christian saints, Mary The Mother of God, Mother of Jesus and wife of St Joseph, serves as the patron saint of all human beings, especially young children, like the students at St Mary’s watching over them with motherly care.

Acknowledgement of Country. We acknowledge the Gumbaynggirr people, the traditional custodians of the lands on which our school resides. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions and culture of the Gumbaynggirr peoples.
