Year 7 - Year 12

Mater Maria Catholic College is a co-educational school, Years 7 to 12, located in the tranquil bush setting in Warriewood Valley

Our College provides young people with an exceptional educational experience focused on learning, positive support networks and an infinite array of opportunities grounded in our shared College values of Community, Hospitality, Justice, Spirituality and Stewardship.

Our College provides an engaging, technology-complemented learning environment where both students and teachers are challenged to increase the learning gain for each individual. Quality transformational learning is our focus and through flexible learning structures and informed by the latest professional practice our teachers guide our students to nurture curiosity, develop quality relationships and achieve their personal best.

Graduates of Mater Maria not only do well, they make a positive impact in their local communities and the world in ways that matter.

Welcome to the College, please feel free to come and see for yourself on our annual Open Day or book a tour.

At Mater Maria we strive to develop EPIC students who are;

Engaged in learning
Positive in their attitude
Independent by taking personal responsibility to reach their full potential
Connected by collaborating with teachers and peers

Learning is the primary focus at the College and as a coeducational community our teachers confidently embrace the uniqueness of each student, actively seeking to develop the special gifts that each student has by tailoring learning to their needs.

We accept the professional challenge of raising our students’ academic standards of achievement by providing opportunities for creative problem solving and critical thinking, whilst guiding students’ progress and instilling a love of lifelong learning.

Mater Maria is a vibrant, nurturing community which affords creative, academic and sport loving students with a diverse program of knowledge and skills so to maximise their individual achievement providing the opportunity to flourish beyond school.
The College site is organised around a grand staircase ascending to the heart of the College, the beautiful Mater Maria Chapel.

Our facilities are modern and technologically equipped to offer engaging and creative ways for collaborating, communicating and delivering the curriculum. The site is wirelessly networked to service our ‘Bring Your Own Device’ program.

We are very excited about the soon to be opened, digital resource centre and student services building. This specially designed three tiered building will provide numerous indoor and outdoor learning spaces, as well as centralising the support services of the College improving access to meet each student’s learning and wellbeing needs.

Our College also has specialised learning spaces for electronics, digital learning, drama, fitness, hospitality, languages, music, science, timber, textiles and visual arts.

In addition, students have the benefit of our performance and presentation auditorium, the Byrne Theatre and the Marana Complex, which is an impressive gymnasium and gathering space for College events. In the open air, the Mater Maria Oval, covered outdoor court and cricket nets provide training grounds and pitches for a number of our sporting teams.

Our curriculum is enriched by a diverse range of opportunities, to allow our students to follow their individual interests and share their talents in a more challenging and fulfilling way. Students have the opportunity to be involved in:

  • Social Justice initiatives
  • Faith formation events e.g. World Youth Day and Australian Catholic Youth Festivals
  • An overseas immersion tour as well as sporting and cultural tours
  • Sport – a wide variety of representative sports as well as fitness training
  • The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
  • Performing arts programs including music ensembles and individual tutoring, drama and dance groups
  • Creative arts clubs
  • Debating and Public speaking
  • Various academic competitions e.g. chemistry titration and mock trial
  • Environmental stewardship activities
  • House based competitions and activities

Our student wellbeing and pastoral care program is structured so that each child is known as an individual, is challenged to reach his or her potential and feels connected to a cohesive community through various student leadership, faith development, social justice, mental health, anti-bullying and cyber safety initiatives.

We encourage our young people to value and respect themselves, build positive relationships and contribute to the welcoming feel our College is renowned for. At Mater Maria, the inclusive nature of our coeducational setting provides a wide range of natural opportunities for building positive and healthy relationships between girls and boys needed for life after school.

Students are encouraged to have a growth mindset by developing personal goals and the resilience to use feedback for learning. Our behaviour management approach is grounded in restorative justice in a spirit of reconciliation which allows our students to discern appropriate behaviour and grow into responsible young adults.

At Mater Maria Catholic College we are all called to take up the challenge to live our five values as we discover new ways to realise the parable of the Good Samaritan in all that we do.

• Community is our call to serve
• Justice is our call to go and make a difference through respect and dignity for all in our world
• Hospitality is our call to freely contribute to the life of this community
• Spirituality is a mindful awareness of that God is with us in all that we do
• Stewardship is our reverence for the sacredness of all of God’s Creation
Inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ we, at Mater Maria, provide a well-rounded, high quality education for young men and women within the welcoming environment of a Catholic faith community.

We aim to build an educational foundation for life with an emphasis on social justice and the celebration of the uniqueness of the individual.

We will therefore:

• Encourage a sense of community
• Promote gospel values
• Nurture the human spirit
• Develop a welcoming, peaceful environment
• Provide opportunities for the realisation of potential
• Educate for life

Mater Maria Catholic College is situated on Forest Road at Warriewood. Mater Maria is well serviced by a network of government and private bus services which provide transport to and from the College.
