2023 School Captains
We are honoured to be the 2023 St Mary's School Captains.
As school captains, we will strive to be encouraging and inclusive of others to ensure that everyone has a good time at school and put 100% effort into all activities they attempt throughout their day. We aim to make St Mary's a place where all students feel supported and encouraged to strive to be their very best. As leaders of our school, we will be compassionate and understanding of others and their individual needs. We will lead by example by modelling a positive mindset towards our learning as well as other activities such as house sports.
We invite all 5/6 students to show good leadership skills and encouraging others to do the same by setting the right example for younger students.
Together we will strive to ensure our school remains a respectful, responsible and safe place to learn and play.
We look forward to our year together.

McAuley House Captains
Gold House has been named McAuley after Sr Catherine McAuley the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, and whose example of mercy we are inspired to imitate, every day. Our Feast Day is celebrated on 11 November.
As the McAuley House Captains, we will be responsible role models who will set a good example for future leaders, particularly for our Gold House. The focus for the McAuley House is for everyone to give their best efforts and not only focus on the result.

Mannix House Captains
Red House has been named Mannix after Daniel Mannix who was the Archbishop of Melbourne for 46 years and one of the most influential figures in the 20th Century Australia. Coincidentally, he laid the Memorial Stone here at St Mary's School, many years ago. Our Feast Day is celebrated on 4 March.
As the Mannix House Captains, we will role model for others - fairness, kindness and encourage others to have a go. The focus for the Mannix House is to always show good sportsmanship and for everyone to have fun.
