We also encourage Alumni to share memorabilia such as uniform items and stories from their school days to be included in our Heritage Centre. If you would like to contribute to the Heritage Centre, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 03 6108 2560.
A special highlight of our 150th milestone celebrations is the production of a book that features 150 faces of significant people who have made an impact on the St Mary’s community.
The book will highlight their school service and achievements and be published ready for our 150th Anniversary.
While some stories are known to us, we are reaching out to you and the wider public to find the many and varied stories that need to be told.
Nominations are called for past members of the College community, male and female, in the categories of students, staff and other (e.g. volunteers), who fit the criteria noted on the nomination form.
The form may be completed online, or downloaded and then posted, handed in or emailed to the College. For more information, visit www.smc.tas.edu.au/150-faces-project/
