St Mary's Primary School, Scone serves the Parish of St Mary Queen of Peace, Scone. The school also enrols children from the towns of Muswellbrook, Aberdeen, Blandford and Murrurundi.
St Mary's School was established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1887. St Mary's motto is: 'Teach Us Wisdom, Teach Us Love'. In everything we do in the school, the achievement of this motto is paramount. The school seeks to bring lived Catholic values and teachings to its school community. The school believes that parents are the primary educators in the faith of their children and that faith formation is a lifelong process.
The model for faith formation is where children learn about faith by doing and reflecting on the doing. Care for all in the school community through a strong Pastoral Care presence is central to the environment within St Mary's School. The school seeks to assist all children to become life-long learners. Numeracy and Literacy are a strong focus.
The school actively seeks to meet individual differences in classrooms by employing teaching strategies that ensure all children are catered for through a differentiated curriculum. Social and emotional learning is highly valued and the 'You Can Do It!' program supports children's social and emotional development. St Mary's School is a school that seeks to instill pride, commitment and humour in the children in its care.
The children are challenged to achieve their best in an accepting, supportive and friendly environment.
Students of St. Mary's Primary School, Scone are encouraged to continue their Catholic education by attending St. Joseph's High School, Aberdeen.
