About our school

Set in the hills of beautiful Belgrave, the heart of Wurundjeri Country, Mater Christi offers something quite unique to girls in the outer east of Melbourne. Our College was established by the Good Samaritan Sisters in 1963, which makes us quite young as far as girls’ schools go.  Mater Christi celebrates what it means to be a girl in a changing world.  We aspire to educate girls who can take their place in the affairs of society, are not limited by stereotypes and can be true to who they are.  

The Good Samaritan Sisters, an Australian order founded in 1857, were inspired by the parable of the same name; this tale of compassion found in the Gospel of Luke is central to our College values.  

Mater Christi’s motto consists of three words – Informed… Compassionate… Creative…  These three words capture our dreams for each and every young person who walks through our doors. Whatever her pathway, each student will have opportunities to explore her interests and talents, to learn about herself and the world around, and to find a place to belong. At Mater Christi we take seriously our responsibility to walk gently on the earth as stewards of creation, to be a voice for the voiceless, and to form leaders who are optimistic about the future.

There is no doubt that the pandemic has caused many of us to rethink our priorities.  We know that managing the uncertainty of these times has taken a toll, on some more than others.  At Mater Christi we take a proactive approach to wellbeing by including social-emotional learning as part of our learning program.  Our curriculum is based on the Middle Years Program of the International Baccalaureate, an internationally recognised framework which caters for a range of learning needs, offering support and challenge where required.  Our VCE program is rich and our results are a testament to the professionalism and expertise of our teachers.

A girls’ school provides a safe environment to explore identity in the midst of a caring, forward thinking, service-oriented community. Meaning-making, Learning, Wellbeing and Enrichment are the pillars on which we build this educational community, and we invite you to join us.
