Saint Mary's Co-Ed Primary School (formerly known as Scoil Mhuire CBS) is a primary school located in the town of Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, Ireland. As of February 2013, the school is now co-educational, accepting boys and girls for the first time from Junior Infants up to 6th class starting in September 2013.
The school opened in September 1959 and got an extension in 1970. The school has been renamed to "Saint Mary's Co-Ed Primary School" because it now accepts boys and girls so it is no longer a Christian Brothers School. The school had its 50-year jubilee in 2009. The school is located beside Coláiste Mhuire, the oldest post-primary school in Mullingar.
