St Mary's College is a Catholic educational community for students in Prep to Year 12 who have a significant hearing loss. We follow the charism of the Dominican tradition and we welcome students from all faiths. In the spirit of providing an educational experience in genuinely inclusive environments, St Mary's College students are members of two school communities – St Mary's College and that of the partner schools. Students develop sound communicative abilities and the critical thinking skills required for success as global citizens, whilst seamlessly receiving exceptional, evidenced-based innovation in deaf education. Students at each campus are able to access the breadth of curriculum offered through our partner schools whilst accessing interventions and supports specific to their needs through St Mary’s College staff based at each campus. Our aim is to foster compassionate, empowered, effective communicators nurtured through the spirit of our community and the values of the Dominican pillars.
It is with great pride that I invite you to explore our website and encourage you to discover how St Mary’s College for the Deaf can realise your child’s potential.
Parents & Friends Association
The St Mary's College PFA offers an opportunity for parents to gather and get involved in the life of the school through various events and fundraising activities. New parents are very welcome at meetings either for a specific event or as a regular attendee.
