The school offers the supervised, 7 week program, for all students, each term on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s between 3:40 pm and 4:45 pm. This program is free of charge.


Our School uniform is proudly worn by our students. Our staff works to support the correct wearing of uniform so that high standards are maintained. School Uniforms, both winter and summer, are available at Brunella’s School Wear, 60/162 Sanger Street, Corowa.

As per our sunsmart policy, wearing of school hats is compulsory in Terms 1 and 4.

Open Days

At St. Mary's we have school open days twice a year, early  in Term 2  during Catholic Education Week and in the 2nd last week of  Term Two. If these times are not convenient families can make an appointment and visit the school at a time that suits them.

In the 4th Term we also have a series of transition days where new Foundation students visit the school to become familiar with the school's surroundings.
