Commissioning of College leaders

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

On Tuesday 20 February our Senior School and Junior School leaders were commissioned in their leadership roles during a special ceremony held in the Cathedral.

All of our Year 12s as a leadership group were also formally acknowledged and presented with a Nano Nagle heart badge.

Following the ceremony, our leaders, together with parents, staff and invited guests, continued the celebrations with a morning tea together.

Thank you to members of the College Board, Governing Council of St Mary’s College and Congregation for their attendance and to Father Shammi Perera for leading us in prayer.

Congratulations to the following girls, who embody courage, wisdom, humility and grace – qualities that we foster in our students. We are confident that they will represent St Mary’s College in their roles and duties in the true tradition of Nano Nagle.

Celebrate our 150th birthday in true Irish style!

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

St Mary’s College will be seeing green next month, but don’t worry, it will all be in the name of fun and frivolity!

Preparations are in full swing for our 150th Anniversary Fun Day, which will take place at the College on Saturday 17 March from 12.00-3.00pm – what better way to celebrate our Irish roots than with a birthday bash on St Patrick’s Day?

Guests will be transported back to our convict past with a jam-packed program of old-fashioned games, colonial dress-ups, Irish music and dancing, and a giant birthday cake to complete the celebrations.

In true festival style, there will be a complimentary sausage sizzle on site, along with a wide array of delicious snacks and drinks – all of the green variety, of course, as well as anniversary merchandise and free face painting and a scavenger hunt for the kids.

Dress to impress

There will also be prizes awarded on the day for best-dressed guests (with the luck of the Irish on their side), so get your thinking caps on and dress to impress to ensure you stand out from the crowd.

All members of the College community are invited to come along and enjoy the fun on St Patrick’s Day.

You will be able to find us on the SMC convent lawns – just look for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

A more specific program will become available shortly.
