Our school

‘This school feels like a community - every teacher knows every student. They are very caring and want the best for every child.’ St Mary’s parent


Welcome to St Mary’s School, Charleville. We are a Catholic faith learning community for students from Prep to Year 6 that aims to live out the Gospel message of Jesus in everything we do.

We believe every child has a right to learn the way they learn best and we pride ourselves on knowing each student as an individual and knowing each family in our community.

Students are nurtured academically while honouring their natural talents and interests in a way that creates a lifelong love of learning.

Our caring and expert teachers are committed to ensuring all students thrive at their academic, social, spiritual, physical and co-curricular activities. There are high expectations for all students and excellent support in place so that they can achieve their best.

We invite parents into the educational journey of their child, from the commencement of Prep through to upper primary where together we prepare our young learners to take on high school with confidence.

As we live out our school motto of ‘Learning through Loving and Living’, we continue the tradition of our foundation teachers, the Sisters of Mercy, and their values of compassion, justice, hospitality, service, respect and courage.

We welcome students from Charleville district and from as far as Morven, Augathella, Quilpie and Wyandra.
