Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to St Mary–St Joseph Catholic Primary School Maroubra.

Following the Brigidine tradition, our school motto, ‘Strength and Gentleness’, typifies the values to which we aspire and reminds us to be resilient learners and responsible citizens. We recognise that these characteristics will support children throughout their years of education and beyond.

Our dedicated staff work with the families to challenge students academically, celebrate achievements and set future goals.

We love our location by the beach and take every opportunity to utilise our environment. From our spacious playgrounds to environmental studies and surfing lessons, Maroubra is the perfect place to learn.

Choosing St Mary–St Joseph for your child provides them with the opportunity to share their talents and enhance our vibrant education community.

I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions about our school.

The school was administered by the Brigidine Sisters until the end of 1988. We acknowledge and value our Brigidine history, inviting the Brigidine sisters to join us for major events.
