The aprons and tea towels have been produced especially for SMC students and families to remember this significant year and, as such, make a wonderful keepsake to proudly display in your home and/or share with relatives and special friends. 

  • The Kinder-Year 2 design will be screen printed in green onto a high quality white tea towel and in white onto bottle green aprons. 
  • The Year 3-6 design will be screen printed in blue onto a high quality white tea towel and in white onto navy blue aprons. 

Cost is $12 for the tea towel and $20 for the apron.

Students gather for Justice Action Network workshop

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in Featured News, News, Timeline

Seven young women from St Mary’s College yesterday gathered with students from schools across Hobart for the 2018 Justice Action Network workshop on girls’ education.

Participants had the privilege of hearing from two prominent guest speakers: activist, former Australian Senator and leader of the Australian Greens Party, Christine Milne (who is also an SMC Alumna); and a representative of the International Women’s Development Agency, Andreana Reale.

Hosted by Guilford Young College, the workshop provided a space for students to discuss issues related to women’s education and practical ways to increase awareness and promote action on a global scale. 

The Justice Action Network is a network of students and staff from a number of schools across southern Tasmania that has existed for more than 20 years.

Australian Mathematics Competition 2018

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in Featured News, News, Timeline

St Mary’s College Junior and Senior School students are being encouraged to participate in the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC). 

Suitable for students of all standards, the competition challenges participants to solve 30 problems in just 60-minutes (Year 3-6) or 75 minutes (Year 7-12).

Designed to test mathematical thinking, the problems can be answered just as quickly without a calculator as with one, with questions progressively getting more difficult throughout the competition – challenging even the most gifted of students.

Offered annually to students at St Mary’s College from Year 3-10, this year’s competition will be held on Thursday 9 August.

While some Senior School classes may have entered automatically, the competition is open to all students at the College who fit into the above year range.

Classes already enrolled are Year 7 – Jess Veitch and Wendy Forsyth, Year 8 and Year 9 – Ivano Del Pio, and Year 10 – Andrew Baker.

If your daughter would like to compete and is not in the classes listed above, please contact Andrew Baker ( as soon as possible.

About the AMC

The AMC was introduced in Australia in 1978 as the first Australian-wide mathematics competition for students. It has since spread internationally, with students in more than 30 countries attempting the same problems.

In recent years the competition has been available in two formats (online and paper), allowing even more students to participate worldwide.

If you have any spare blankets or old coats, jumpers, beanies, socks and scarves in your wardrobe, please consider donating them to the College on Friday 8 June (Junior School Pyjama Day).

Your contributions will directly support the Vinnies’ annual Winter Appeal.
