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.

Over the next few weeks, the diocese is conducting a consultation survey.  The information that you are able to provide as members of the diocese will be used to discern diocesan priorities and strategies to form a Diocesan Pastoral Plan for the next five years. A Consultation Survey has been designed to provide an avenue for as many people and groups as possible to be heard, whether active or not as Catholics.  You are encouraged to participate in this survey and to invite other family members and friends to share their perspectives on how we can “Create welcoming communities from the Range to the Borders where God’s love and the joy of the Gospel is experienced and shared”.


  • Complete Consultation Survey as a hard copy and return to designated collection box within your parish, agency, school etc (Hard copy forms and collection box available in the Mater Dei office).
  • Respond online via Survey Monkey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NGTGS8M
  • Access electronic version of survey as a word document (link) and email response to diocesansurvey@outlook.com
