Welcome to our website....

Mater Dei Primary School is a Catholic, co-educational school catering for children from Prep to Year 6. At Mater Dei, we aim to cultivate a welcoming and positive climate in which students, staff, parents and parishioners feel a true sense of belonging and commitment to a living, faith community. In light of our vision “To teach as Jesus did” the growth of each student is fostered through love, tolerance and justice. Learning takes place in a climate of respect for each person’s dignity and acceptance of their uniqueness. Through an atmosphere of academic and pastoral care, students are equipped with the learning and personal skills necessary to help them take their place in the twenty-first century.

AEDC (AUSTRALIAN EARLY DEVELOPMENT CENSUS)
Our service/school is participating in the Australian Early Childhood Educational Development Experience (AECEDE) Research Project.   The project explores the impact of early learning experiences on children’s development, at home and in early education and care services.  This research will help policy makers understand how children’s education and care experiences in the years prior to starting full time school can be delivered in a way that best supports children’s development and learning.

The project is being conducted by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, and supported by the NSW and NT Departments of Education and researchers from the Telethon Kids Institute and the Social Research Centre.
