Mater Dei Primary School is a Catholic, co-educational school catering for children from Prep to Year 6. At Mater Dei, we aim to cultivate a welcoming and positive climate in which students, staff, parents and parishioners feel a true sense of belonging and commitment to a living, faith community. In light of our vision “To teach as Jesus did” the growth of each student is fostered through love, tolerance and justice. Learning takes place in a climate of respect for each person’s dignity and acceptance of their uniqueness. Through an atmosphere of academic and pastoral care, students are equipped with the learning and personal skills necessary to help them take their place in the twenty-first century.
