St Mary's Primary School is committed to students experiencing a sense of inclusion that is respectful of their giftedness, abilities, cultures and contexts. Our students experience learning and teaching in a child safe environment that is engaging and liberating.

St Mary's Primary School acknowledges the Minjambuta people as the traditional custodians of the land on which our school is situated. We recognise the continuing connection of the people of the Dhudhuroa and Waywurru Nations to land, water and community. This land we share is sacred, this land is a gift, this land is thousands of years old.

F.I.R.E Carrier Covenant

Covenants emphasize the ethos and faith belief of Catholic schools and the Social Justice response they are committed to make as part of their Christian identity. Schools’ expressed commitment is reflected in practical goals and actions which they strive to achieve in the year ahead.

School covenants express in ways, specific to each school, recognition of the special contribution Aboriginal peoples and their cultures make to Australian society, their relationship and connection to the land, their present position of disadvantage and social exclusion. They declare the school and school community’s commitment to stand in solidarity with Aboriginal peoples to achieve true reconciliation and acknowledgement, by all Australians, of their rightful position within Australian society.

Democratic Principles

The Victorian Registration Standards (sch 4 cl 1 and sch 8 cl 1) (CECV Guidelines ref 1.1 and 7.1) require that the programs and teaching must support and promote the principles and practice of Australian democracy, including a commitment to:

  • elected government; and 
  • the rule of law; and
  • equal rights for all before the law; and
  • freedom of religion; and
  • freedom of speech and association; and
  • the values of openness and tolerance

St Mary's Myrtleford is committed to the principles of democracy.

  • We believe in an accountable, democratically elected government.
  • We respect and observe the rule of law and believe that no person is above the law.
  • We believe in equal rights for all before the law, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender, or other attributes.
  • We believe not only in the freedom of religion, but also the need to practise tolerance and understanding of others' beliefs.
  • We believe in the value of freedom of speech and freedom of association, but also acknowledge that we have the responsibility not to abuse this freedom.
  • We believe in the values of openness and tolerance, and value and respect all members of the School community regardless of background.
