We are even now actively seeking the donation of memorabilia, artefacts, documents and other materials to add to our archives and/or to place on exhibit in the Heritage Centre. The College would be particularly grateful if those Past Scholars wishing to assist in this search and acquisition of materials could contact Marg via email or contact the College on (T): 03 6210 2560.

Contact database – we need your help!

With the College’s 150th anniversary just around the corner, we are putting every effort into working on our contact database to ensure that St Mary’s Alumni are informed of the various special events that will be taking place to celebrate this momentous occasion.
We request that all Alumni contact the College to ensure that we have your current postal and email address, and to assist with passing on contact information of your old classmates too where possible. If we can get a volunteer from each graduating class to assist in finding the current contact details of as many people from their class as possible, it would be a huge help!

Please contact the College on (T): 03 6108 2560 of fill out the following online form if you would like to update your contact details on the College database:
