St Mary’s College 150th Staff Reunion

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

Fun fact: Did you know that St Mary’s College welcomed its first students on February 3, 1868?

To kick off our 150th anniversary celebrations next year, the St Mary’s College is inviting all previous – and current – staff members to attend the ultimate staff reunion, to be held at the College on Saturday 3 February 2018.

The day will be a wonderful opportunity to catch up with past friends from over the years, and for past staff to revisit the College and reminisce on old times.

Afternoon tea will be provided, so please confirm your attendance for catering purposes by January 22, 2018, and don’t forget to spread the word among your own networks – the more people we have join us, the merrier!

We look forward to seeing you there, as we gather as a community to mark this very special milestone in the history of the College.

Please refer to the below flyer for more information and to RSVP:

St Mary’s continues to excel in science

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in News, Timeline

St Mary’s College students, pictured with SMC Science Coordinator Heather Omant, were presented with their awards at the Tasmanian Science Talent Search prize-giving ceremony in Launceston.

On Sunday 26 November, a group of St Mary’s girls, together with Science Coordinator, Heather Omant, travelled to Launceston to attend the Tasmanian Science Talent Search prize-giving ceremony, where the students were honoured for their outstanding research investigations submitted earlier in the year. Read a summary of the Tasmanian Science Talent Search here: http://www.smc.tas.edu.au/celebrating-outstanding-talent-in-science/

In addition to the prizes received, all students were awarded Rowe Scientific Student Awards for Excellence. Eloise Deconinck (Year 10) received the Rowe Scientific Award for Most Promising Young Scientist in the intermediate division for 2017.

In more fantastic news, Eloise, Spriha Paudel and Keeley Hine-Haycock (Year 10) have been selected as national finalists in the BHP Billiton Science and Engineering Awards (BHPBSEA), joining just 23 other students Australia-wide. The girls will travel to the finals camp in Melbourne in February 2018.

This is the fourth consecutive year that St Mary’s College has had a student/students enter into the BHPBSEA finals.
