Learning & Teaching

Learning and teaching at St Mary’s College reflects our Vision and Mission Statements which aim to promote a quality education which is holistic, dynamic and responsive to the needs of our students and the community we serve, striving for excellence in all aspects of learning and teaching.
The curriculum is dynamic and adaptable to the specific needs of St Mary’s College and the Maryborough community. In particular, it is responsive to technological change and is responsive to the needs of learners at the various stages of development. Whole school approaches to curriculum development and delivery ensure alignment between the varying elements of the curriculum: pedagogy, assessment and reporting, and lead to the creation of supportive learning environments.
With the introduction of Year 7 to secondary school the College has created a fully developed Middle Years program to support the Senior Years of Learning.​
The College is currently implementing the BCE Religious Education Guidelines in all Religious Education classes, the Australian Curriculum in all other subjects Years 7-10, and the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority subjects in Years 11 and 12.
