Welcome to
St Mary's

The aim of St. Mary’s Secondary School is to provide holistic education, in the Catholic tradition for all our students. We are committed to the academic, creative, emotional, spiritual and physical development of each student, in a caring and safe environment.

Principal's Welcome

It is with great pride and excitement that I introduce myself as Principal and welcome you to St Mary’s Secondary School, Charleville.

Here in St Mary’s we believe that every child is unique and that it is our task to foster the development of each individual student. Founded by Catherine McAuley, St Mary’s has been providing excellence in education since 1838. We are proud of our school’s heritage and we strive to provide the utmost care for our students in an environment that values teaching, learning, and education for all. 

I invite you to explore our website and if you would like to learn more about the school, or arrange a visit, please find our contact details below. I look forward to welcoming you to our school in the future.

Le gach dea-ghuí,
