Marymount Primary School is a community founded on the principles of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception and of St Francis of Assisi. These foundations are enhanced by our devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Through her life, Mary kept faith in God and announced the coming of justice of God in her great song of liberation. “God will put down the mighty from their thrones and exalt the lowly; fill the hungry with good things but send the rich away empty” (Luke 1:46-55). Mary was a faithful disciple; a poor member of the people, an ‘outsider’, a victim of violence, a prophet of justice and a woman.
Through our prayer and liturgical life, and our close relationship with the parish community, we strive to grow in the knowledge of Christ and in attentiveness to the presence of God in our lives according to the Catholic tradition.
Religious education at Marymount has its groundings in the strong traditions of the past enhanced by current best educational practice. Education in religious literacy of the rich and varied tradition of the Catholic faith, a deep prayer life, participation in celebration, liturgy and the sacraments and an emphasis on social justice and action are areas of emphasis of our Religious Education program. The school community strives to nurture the Catholic identity of the school and seeks to promote Christian action.
Our faith is expressed in a variety of ways at Marymount Primary School.
