We are in the final planning stage, with less than two week to go, for our St Mary's College 150 year Anniversary Dinner! To this end, if you have anyone on your table who has not yet purchased their seat, could you please communicate to them that this must be completed by Monday 2 August. Tickets are still available.



If you have spare seats on your table (minimum allowed per table is 6) could you please email me  CLICK HERE with the number of spare seats available on your table so that we can try to fill these spaces or if required by the venue - reconfigure tables.

If you are electing to drive to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, please enter the carpark via Mary St and show your ticket. This area has been allocated for our event.

We are all looking forward to a wonderful night and hoping that our old Scholars join us!

Alliance of Girls' Schools Australasia

Dear Old Scholars,

As one of our much-valued alumnae, we would appreciate your input into a new study commissioned by the Alliance of Girls' Schools Australasia. Researchers from QUT and the University of Canberra are researching the degree, career and life outcomes of graduates of girls' schools so they can paint a picture of life beyond the school gates for women who attended single-sex schools.

We would appreciate it if you could take 15-20 minutes to complete a survey collecting data for this important new research study.


The survey closes on 16 August 2019. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr Rebecca English or Assoc Prof Raechel Johns via r.english@qut.edu.au or raechel.johns@canberra.edu.au.

The culmination of the college's 150th anniversary celebrations takes place on Saturday 10 August from 6.30pm at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and you are all welcome!

All current and former parents and caregivers, old scholars and past/present staff members, along with family members and friends, are warmly invited to join the St Mary's College Community for this milestone event.

With fabulous entertainment from the unique 'St Mary's Current and Old Scholar Orchestra and Choir', special guest appearances and 'after party' DJ, this night promises to be a wonderful celebration and opportunity to reminisce and rekindle friendships.

A Night of Stories, Music and Memories: St Mary's College 150th Anniversary Gala Night.

Another highlight will be the showcase of our '150 Stories for 150 Years Project', the culmination of interviews of past SMC community members by current Middle School students during Term Two this year.

Get a group together for a table of 10 to enjoy an all-inclusive three course dinner and beverages for $120 per person.

This night really does promise to be one for sharing your stories and recalling memories amongst old friends.
