Defence Force Families

At St Mary's, we participate in the Defence School Mentor Program funded by the Department of Defence.

Our Defence School mentor (DSM) is Mrs Dianne Woods who is a member of our staff and works with and supports our Australian Defence Force families.

The Defence School Mentor (DSM) program began at St Mary's in 2022 and has quickly become a valued part of our school community. We have a significant number of students enrolled at our school whose parents are serving members of the Australian Defence Force. Our DSM, Dianne Woods, is always available to answer any questions you may have and to welcome your family as you transition into our school.

Dianne can be reached through the school office on 02 8844 5700 or via our email form.
