​​​​Discover Mater Dei ​

​​For over 60 years Mater Dei has educated generations of children from our local Ashgrove and The Gap community and beyond.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Mater Dei focuses on assisting students to reach their full academic potential, develop their Christian faith and acquire social confidence and responsibility.  In our school, families become a part of the community which seeks a holistic education​ within a Catholic tradition. 


I  invite you to visit our school at your convenience and are happy to accept your enrolment at any time of the year. An online enrolment application can be completed by clicking on the enrolments tab at the top of this page.

Mater Dei is committed to educating its students for the future. Its innovative curriculum is designed to assist students to become lifelong learners with a firm grasp of basic numeracy and literacy skills. The school strives to develop in students the skills, attitudes and values that will enable them to reach their full potential as successful and responsible citizens.

Mater Dei Catholic Primary School offers you and your child an education with a difference, from Prep through to Year 6.  At Mater Dei, we select highly qualified teaching staff, enabling us to have teachers suited not only to the students’ needs but also to the needs of the community. 

The school motto, 'Care and Concern for Others' summarises the purpose and spirit of our school. We welcome you to Mater Dei to learn of the love of Jesus for us, to know and love him more, and to learn how to live in a Christ-like way. The core values of the school encourage respectful relationships, co-operation, acceptance, compassion, justice and forgiveness for all.  

I invite you to tour our school and discover Mater Dei.
