Principal's Welcome

Batlow is a small country town located at the foot of the beautiful Snowy Mountains. St Mary’s School caters for the compulsory years of schooling from Kindergarten to Year 6.

The school is part of the Canberra/Goulburn Archdiocese and is administered by the Catholic Education Office in Canberra. St. Mary’s is a small school with a current enrolment of 36 students from Kindergarten through to Year 6. The school is committed to providing Christian values and excellence in education to the Batlow region.

At St Mary’s, we aim to develop the whole child, academically, socially, spiritually, morally and physically. Due to our small size, we like to consider ourselves as a large family, where every child is welcomed and treated with respect and dignity.
