Parent Involvement

​​​​At St Mary's College, we understand that educating our students is a partnership involving parents, students and teachers. We value communication between all parties, and encourage parents to be involved in their daughter's education. 

Parents Engagement Group 

St Mary's has an active Parents Engagement Group. The group hosts fundraising events throughout the year, investing money raised into services, supports and facilities for students and our community. Increasing parent connection with the College community is also a priority for the Parent Engagement Group. 

College Board 

St Mary's College has an active, supportive and committed College Board. The Board meets each Term and plays a vital role in supporting the Principal and the College by providing feedback on policies and procedures. The current Board consists of parent, staff and Parish representatives. 

  • Board Chair - Ruby Shillito 
  • Board Secretary - Anita Banks ​


Regular communication is maintained with all parents via the fortnightly College Newsletter. This is emailed to all families, and published on the Parent Portal. Parent Information Evenings are held for various year levels at strategic times to assist with the transition from one phase to the next. As well, parents are invited to attend SET (Senior Education and Training) Plan interviews with their daughter in Year 10, to help consolidate planning for the senior years, and possible career options post schooling.

Parents are always welcome to contact their daughter's Pastoral Care Leader, or classroom teachers at any time.​

Parent Portals 

The College offers numerous communication platforms to support our families.

The Parent Portal provides a secure area to view reports, access permission forms, read notices and view the School Calendar.

Bookings for Parent-Teacher Interviews are made via PTO in the Parent Portal . These meetings provide the opportunity to meet with teaching staff to discuss your daughter's progress and goal set for future terms.​
