Mother of God opened on the 8th February, 1955 with an enrolment of 340, 10 of whom were Australian born and 70 who had never been to school. Today we have 86 students under the care of ten staff members. While the early settlers were mainly Maltese, Polish and Ukrainian origin, we now cater for Greek, Italian, Vietnamese, Spanish, Arabic and Philippine children.
