St. Mary's Church/School opened in 1910 on the corner of Macleay and Bourke Streets North Dubbo and was staffed by the Sisters of Mercy. The school was moved to new classroom buildings further north in Bourke Street in 1961. From 1969-1974 St Mary's School was staffed by the Daughters of Charity.

St. Mary's School relocated to Wheelers Lane in 1983 and began expanding to a Primary School in 2001.

The school is part of St Brigid's Parish and uses the St Brigid's Church for special masses. Fr Greg Kennedy is the Parish Priest and our School Chaplain is Fr Joshy Kaithakulangara.

Since the beginning of 2001 the school has experienced a major shift in its structure with a gradual growth of two classes per year to become a full primary school K-Year 6 in 2004. Prior to 2001 St Mary's was a two-streamed school from Kindergarten - Year 2.  St Mary's now has fourteen classes with two streams K-Year 6 with an enrolment of approximately 410 students.

The school strives for excellence offering a wide range of educational experiences. It is actively involved in Parish and town activities and celebrates the high scholastic achievements of its students. All that we do throughout the school is based on our school motto 'Christ Is My Light'.
