P&F Committee:

All are welcome to join our school P&F Committee. It’s been great to have some new members join! 

If you would like to be involved but are unable to attend the monthly meetings due to work or other commitments, please feel free to e mail me and I will add you to the group.


Next P&F Meeting:

Wednesday 17th April at 9:15am (week 1 of Term 2). Please meet at the school office. All welcome!



Toast is available each morning for all students who would like some extra fuel before they begin the school day! 

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who prepare and serve the toast each morning! If you would like to join the roster please let me know or you can pass your name onto Krystal in the office.


Annual Easter Raffle-School Fundraiser:

Raffle drawn: Thursday 28th March at assembly.


Thank you to those who have already contributed prize items.  Your support is wonderful! 

There is still a little bit of time….if you are able to donate any items that would be great, however there is no obligation. The box will remain in the foyer until Wednesday morning.


Please return your raffle tickets and money in a labelled envelope by Monday 25th March to be in the draw! 


Funds raised will go into our p&f fund which in turn will be used for student resources or activities…stay tuned!


On Wednesday 27th March at 9am, after school drop off, the P&F will meet in the school library for the wrapping of Easter prizes.  If you are free and would like to assist that would be wonderful!


Thank you for your support! 


Annual St Vinnies Easter Appeal:

A few years ago St Mary’s school community fostered a wonderful initiative-donating non edible items to those in need in our community at Easter time (much like we do at Christmas time). St Vinnies collect these items and distribute them into our community. It’s always so beautiful to see the spirit of giving alive in our wonderful students and families! 

Thank you to everyone who has been able to donate! 



At St Mary’s this year we are collecting any recyclable cans, bottles and containers marked with the 10cent refund.  These will be transported to Chewton Service Station.  All money raised will come back to our school to benefit our students whilst strengthening our sustainability practises to contribute to a healthier world. There is a new, blue wheelie bin located down stairs for these to be dropped off.


Student Special Lunch Day:

Term 1-Wednesday 27th March: Taco Day!

Students are welcome to purchase a taco with their choice of toppings for a gold coin donation on this day. There will be both vegetarian and beef options available. If your child would prefer they can bring their own lunch as usual. 


School Fair 2024:

Every second year St Mary’s school holds a fair!  This year’s fair will be held in Term 4. Exact date to be confirmed. This will be our major fundraiser for the year. We have begun initial discussions and are keen to start up our fair committee! If you would like to join, please email me or leave your name with Krystal at the school office.  First meeting date is Monday 25th March at 2pm before school pick up! Please meet at the school office. All welcome! Let’s get the ball rolling with our preparations!



170 Year St Mary’s School & Parish Anniversary:

Have a great weekend!
