Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Mel Maria!

Thank you for taking the time to visit us via our website. Mel Maria is a two campus, co-educational primary school catering for 800 children from Pre- kindergarten to Year Six. The completion of our building program ensures the children enjoy modern facilities on both sites. Providing an environment based on Gospel values we aim to develop the full potential of every child, promoting a spirit of inquiry and a thirst for knowledge.

The school has a history of academic excellence and is at the forefront of implementing a dynamic curriculum. The ongoing development of numeracy and literacy skills is of a high priority whilst enrichment programmes are conducted on both sites for the gifted and talented children and those needing remediation. A broad range of academic competitions enhance the pastoral and educational programmes offered.

The curriculum also includes Japanese for all children from year three upward and a comprehensive music and instrumental programme, encompassing the performing arts is offered throughout the entire school. Our physical education programme has expanded to include an out of school hours sports programme.

The use of learning technology is fully integrated within the curriculum and technology is readily available to children within each classroom. Year 4 - 6 students utilise a 1 to 1 Apple laptop program. The school library is a focal point for the children providing them with a wide variety of rich resources to stimulate their creativity. Each campus has its own library both of which are networked together. Although physically separated our community endeavours to fulfil the motto of the school. “Unity is Strength”.

I do hope you enjoy browsing our website.
