Welcome to the Our Lady Star of the Sea website. My name is Louise Campbell and I am the Principal of our school. We are a school with a long and rich history closely connected to our Parish and local community.

As a school community in living the key values we draw inspiration from the example of Mary, Our Lady Star of the Sea, who leads us to Jesus.

“Let us breathe the Spirit of Mary in all that we do, to think, judge feel and act as Mary in all things God has chosen us to do”

We are led by our school vision. Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic School Community: Confidently living, learning and serving with Jesus as our guide.
