As an effective learning community, our learning and teaching is grounded in our Vision Statement:
Mary Immaculate School, a dynamic and caring community committed to enacting our faith;
inspiring, challenging and engaging lifelong learners.
(excellence, integrity, inclusiveness, respect)
At Mary Immaculate School, every young person is provided with opportunities to be a successful and purposeful learner, through experiences in and beyond the classroom. Our students develop skills and dispositions to be lifelong learners who think critically about current issues, whilst building the skills to become active and informed citizens, now and into the future. In a stimulating, positive and supportive environment, collaboration, creativity, problem solving and risk taking are encouraged and celebrated. Within the frameworks of the Habits of Mind and the Growth Mindset, our students are supported to develop positive learning dispositions as they strive for personal and academic excellence.
