St Margaret Mary’s School is a primary school in the Catholic tradition. The school was established in 1928 by the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart and as a result follows the strong tradition of Josephite education in South Australia.
Our school caters for students from preschool to Year 7. The school currently has approximately 400 children from Reception to Year Seven, with the capacity to take 50 preschool children within the sessions offered. Through the Gospel values of Justice, Compassion, Integrity, Responsibility, and Perseverance we teach children to be responsible for themselves, and to show respect towards others and the environment.
Located in the western suburbs of Adelaide (15 minutes from the city and 20 minutes from the beach) the school offers a range of programs that meet the educational and social needs of all students. The school boasts new and contemporary facilities, including individual access to computers.
This year a group of Year 7 students formed a social justice group and they called themselves the ‘Justice League’.
Throughout the year they have co-ordinated many social justice activities across the school.
At the beginning of term 4, they planned and organised a whole school disco and all money raised went towards supporting Catholic Charities.
All the students received a glow stick and had an amazing time dancing to all the latest songs.
This was a great initiative that was highly supported by the whole school community.
(The donations include money also raised in 2015).
