STELLA MARIS COLLEGE 

About Us

Stella Maris is an independent girls' Catholic College founded in 1931 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan in the Benedictine tradition. We pride ourselves on the care and development of young women, who through living the Benedictine values they will make a significant and positive difference to our world.  All that we do is based on our values: compassion, justice, balance, hospitality and wise stewardship.

Curriculum

Stella Maris has a well-earned reputation for having an innovative, flexible and diverse curriculum. To assist each girl to seek a balanced and individually suited academic program, Stella Maris provides a broad curriculum. Students from 7-12 follow the NSW Board of Studies approved program with a range of VET courses available. There is a strong emphasis on participating in the gifted and talented program which includes writing, maths, science, art, language, economics and design competitions.

Technology

All students at Stella Maris use their own laptops and use the facility in their lockers to enable them to be fully charged during the day. Students are encouraged to use their laptops and many of the courses are available online so that independent learning opportunities and an ‘anywhere, anytime learning environment' is created. Both campuses of Stella Maris have an integrated wireless network and students are encouraged to keep in contact with teachers through email. A portal for parent connection is also available.

Innovation

Stella Maris is at the forefront of educational innovation with a focus on encouraging students to become independent learners and thinkers. Senior students with individual programs enjoy flexible curriculum hours.

Social justice immersion programs and outdoor experiences such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award program encourage girls to consider others and to become resilient members of society.

Co-curricular

All students at Stella Maris have the opportunity to participate in a range of academic, sporting and cultural pursuits. In 2011, Stella Maris was the successful winner of the NSW Rock Eisteddfod Challenge and produced an al fresco production of Romeo and Juliet. Girls are encouraged to participate in a wide range of sporting teams including water polo, surfing, soccer, sailing as well as having opportunities in choir, dance and drama ensembles and debating.
