UTas Science Investigation Awards
On Thursday 9 September, 150 St Mary’s College senior students attended the Utas Science Investigation awards, together with pupils from schools in the south of the State.
They presented displays of their Science Inquiry projects which they have been working on throughout Term 3. At the prize giving ceremony that evening, the students listed below gained awards against very stiff competition.
All 150 SMC students who attended the event were wonderful; displaying exemplary behaviour, exceptional work, enthusiasm and excitement. We were very proud of every single girl.
Congratulations and thank you also go to the Science teachers for all their hard work, mentoring and dedication.

Coordinated by Homeroom 11/12B and Mr Ivano Del Pio, the event was a huge success, with every last ticket selling out.
Students, staff, family and friends of the College enjoyed a delicious three course menu of Italian food, homemade with love. Patrons also enjoyed musical entertainment by Vittorio Ferri and meeting special guest Matthew Evans, from The Gourmet Farmer.
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Archbishop’s Samaritan Project.
