College Alumni enjoy reunion atmosphere at annual AGM

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in News, Timeline

The stormy weather didn’t dampen the spirits of our effervescent alumni as they were out in full force on Saturday 3 November for their annual mass, reunion and AGM.

Bubbles were flowing as the group recapped the year’s success, shared stories and rang the school bell in honour of our 150th anniversary.

The event also provided the opportunity to thank and farewell the committee’s co-presidents, Brigitte Gralak and Brigid Shea, who are stepping down from the role at the end of this year, and congratulate Alyssa Barrett, who will be taking the helm as president in 2019.

Photos from the day can be viewed on our online gallery here.

The St Mary’s College Alumni Association is always willing to welcome new committee members, as well as ideas for future functions. If you would like to be involved, please contact the College’s Community Relations team: communications@smc.tas.edu.au 

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.

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.
