About Us

At Parramatta Marist we believe that it is important to develop both the intellectual and spiritual aspects of all students. We provide a rich, relevant and engaging curriculum through the use of contemporary teaching practices and learning experiences.

Parramatta Marist High School is a systemic, Roman Catholic, secondary, day school for boys, located in Westmead, a suburb of the Greater Western Sydney region in New South Wales.

Since 1875 we have been shaped by the Marist charism, one that flows from a basic trust in God and a desire to follow Christ in the way of Mary.

Parramatta Marist was the first Catholic school established in Australia, and second oldest school in Australia.

Parramatta Marist provides a high standard of education which promotes the academic, spiritual, personal, social and physical development of each student. We recognise that each student is unique and has different needs. Through the implementation of Project and Problem Based Learning we provide a relevant, rigorous and rich learning environment that challenges students.

As a Roman Catholic community we encourage and assist each other in the growth and practice of our faith. We educate each other to be witnesses to the Catholic faith in our daily lives.
