St Mary Star of the Sea College is a Catholic Girls’ Secondary School in the Good Samaritan tradition, which recognises and respects the dignity and individuality of each person within our multicultural community. We strive to develop each student’s capabilities through a variety of high-quality learning experiences while promoting the freedom and love of learning. We are deeply committed to amplifying the voice and the gifts of young women to enable them to be and to achieve their best and to claim their roles as leaders of the future. We are equally deeply committed to equipping our students with the skills and the confidence to ensure their agency and advocacy over their lives and their relationships. All members of staff have a responsibility to foster in their students and in their colleagues the rich tradition of Catholic values and education in the Good Samaritan/Benedictine tradition.

As a community of faith, Good Samaritan Education (GSE) is deeply rooted in the Benedictine spirituality gifted to us by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan. The Rule of Benedict, written over 1500 years ago and lived by the Sisters for over 150 years in Australia, underpins GSE’s commitment to the ministry of Catholic education. This commitment is further inspired by the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-27) and gives witness through the engagement of the schools with the ministries and works of the sisters.

As a member College of Good Samaritan Education, St Mary Star of the Sea College continues to be guided by the Good Samaritan Philosophy of Education and shaped by its commitment to the values of our spiritual tradition, including stewardship, mutuality, prayer, hospitality, humility, discernment, justice and peace. We are committed to the statement on The Voice and Experience of Women in Leadership.
