Stella Maris Primary School | Beaumaris

Welcome to Stella Maris Catholic Primary School’s website. I hope that the information contained in these pages will give you an insight into the overall structure of the school and the philosophy by which we operate.

At Stella Maris, our children, parent community, Parish community and teachers work in partnership to support and nurture each individual in our community. We endeavour to provide the best educational resources and facilities to enhance our learning environment.

 We believe that children and teachers achieve their potential when working together as communities of learners. We have flexible learning spaces, consisting of Learning Neighbourhoods, enabling staff to take responsibility for all children in the neighbourhood and to learn from and inspire each other as professionals. Teachers collaboratively plan contemporary, engaging learning experiences in professional learning teams and level meetings. The teamwork, commitment and dedication of all staff leads to spiritual, academic, social and emotional success for all.

 We believe that we are called to care for all in our local and global community. Our school motto ‘courage always’ inspires each child, parent and staff member to take action in supporting social justice initiatives. We challenge our students to inquire about school based issues, wider community and global issues and to ‘take action’ through student voice. We support social justice through enacting our strong vision and mission and promoting the Gospel values.

 We strive to develop a differentiated, contemporary learning environment that is technologically and academically stimulating by providing students with the opportunity to experience success in the pursuit of excellence.  A culture of inquiry, curiosity and deep thinking is central to our educational philosophy.

 We call this the ‘Spirit of Stella’.

 Courage Always
