St Mary's is a welcoming co-educational Catholic Primary School educating families from the Mt Evelyn, Silvan, Wandin, Seville and Woori Yallock areas.  St Mary's Primary School has been servicing the educational needs of the Mt Evelyn community since 1980. We are quite unique in that our school is set in a natural bush setting.  We have the advantage of space, quiet and beautiful flora and fauna.


St Mary's is a community of people sharing a common belief in our motto, "Love Above All".  As members of a Catholic Parish school, we strive to be models of the Gospel values of love, understanding, respect and service.

We have high expectations of staff, students and parents and we anticipate that all who enrol at St Mary's, Mt Evelyn will want to work as one for the good of all.  We follow up and follow through, thus providing equality, justice and consistency.


St Mary's is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them. Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
