St. Mary’s Primary School Cape Town

 

About our School

 

St. Mary’s High School was originally an exclusive private school for girls up to matric which catered for many girls of immigrant parents - Portuguese, Italian, German, etc. The Dominican schools went against the government and opened to all races in the late 1970’s. St. Mary’s High School closed in the early eighties and St. Brigid’s became St. Mary’s Primary. St. Mary’s Primary School became a co-educational state-aided primary school serving the needs of the wider community and catering for all, thus upholding the Catholic ethos. Dominican schools aim to provide forward looking education of the highest quality based on a tradition that goes back over seven hundred years of commitment to education.

 

Today, St Mary’s commits itself to upholding the values of love, respect and reconciliation, thereby creating a prayerful and Catholic atmosphere and developing the school community and the whole individual. This includes nurturing self-discipline and self-esteem, thus helping the children to achieve a level of maturity which will enable them to take up their rightful place in society.
