    So could you tell me, how easy is it to get into SMSHS?
    What advice would you give a year 10 student who is seeking to attend the school for their senior years?
    What does SMSHS look for in a student? What do they prioritise when it comes down to the selection?

    Thank you in advance! All help is really appreciated!
    I'm a student about to join smshs 2016 this year and I forgot to buy the skirt! I wanted to know does anybody know where I could possibly purchase the skirt before school starts!?! PLEASE HELP!!!

    Personally didn't apply, but a few of my friends and people I know did and went. Honestly, their grades dropped, but a lot of peoples rise a lot. And its a good school in terms of scaling, at least compared to a lot of schools in the West. To me those people focused way too much on socialising there and there wasnt really a balance.


    How you have a good chance getting in is teacher references from what I've heard, I know someone with straight A's that didnt get in as opposed to someone that had average grades but teacher references, and they did. Your school also probably has an impact, they'll try to take kids from public schools/and possibly even focus on 'disadvantaged' ones. Also applying earlier probably also helps. cant remember if theres a slot of if you know someone already going there, but if you do that helps as well

    Hi guys,
    I am very keen on attending St Mary's Senior High School but need a bit of help. It is an unusual question but i would like to make my application pleasing for the staff to read. i have been told by a friend that the one page smshs provide for their personal profile is where you are supposed to write your entire essay...
    Can i add an extra page or is one page only allowed?

    To be honest it'd be better if you just stick to one page. From what I heard they just skip ones that are too lengthy or don't go straight to the point.

    Don't quote me on this but I don't think they have a uniform policy, i.e. you can wear whatever you want...

    You're only expected to wear the school uniform on special occasions. On a normal school day there is a "dress code." The dress code is plain green, grey, black, white or yellow clothing + nothing offensive or revealing.
