Marching for girls’ education

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in News, Timeline

On Saturday 3 November the College’s Justice Action Network rallied together again to make a change. This time it was to raise awareness for equal and fair access for all girls to education.
Students marched from Franklin Square to Parliament Lawns holding banners.

Once arriving at Parliament Lawns, we joined with students from Mackillop College, The Friends’ School and Sacred Heart College to share songs, poems and speeches about the issue of girls’ education.

Isabella Cox (Year 9) was our fantastic MC, and Shea Williams and Stella Barnhoorn (Year 12), made notable contributions. Two politicians from our community also spoke at the event – Jo Siekja, Labour MP and Helen Burnett, Greens MP.

More photos from the day are available to view on our online gallery.

Year 5 Waratah gets behind oral recycling program

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

Hobart Family Dental is a family owned dental business that provides for people of all ages. They have recently started a new ‘Oral Recycling’ program that provides Hobart with an opportunity to recycle dental products such as toothbrushes, floss containers, toothpaste tubes and caps and other packaging. Schools all around Hobart have been asked to participate in this program, and St Mary’s have wholeheartedly taken up the request.

In the Student Services Office there will be a box for you to discard of your old toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and floss containers instead of disposing of them into landfill. By throwing away these items, you are damaging the environment. Around 2,000,000 toothbrushes go to landfill every year just in Tasmania!

By giving your old toothbrushes to Hobart Family Dental, these objects can be re-purposed into new plastic items. Imagine all that plastic from 2 million toothbrushes; it can endanger so many animal species if they come across it in landfill. Hobart Family Dental are showing respect to the environment, and you can too by donating your old dental products and packaging.

Remembrance Day – students honour the spirit of our fallen soldiers

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in News, Timeline


The College’s Junior School students celebrated Remembrance Day (November 11) this morning with a Liturgy in the Cathedral led by Year 6 Banksia.

To commemorate the occasion, each class created a poppy wreath as a symbol of remembrance for all Australians who have died as a result of war. 

Universally known as the ‘flower of remembrance’, poppies were among the first plants that came from the battlefields of northern France and Belgium during World War I.

An annual tradition at St Mary’s College, the Remembrance Day ceremony is an important way for our students to show their appreciation for all those who have sacrificed their lives for the freedom of our great nation. #wewillrememberthem

Our Senior School students will participate in their own prayer service at the College on Monday 12 November.
