What a way to launch our Centenary!

The school was abuzz with excitement and chatter on Saturday 20 February as we welcomed our alumnae back to launch and celebrate the School's Centenary at Old Girls' Day.

The day was full of activities, including the launch of the centenary book, A Place to Grow; tours of the School and the Old Girls' Chapel Service. The Chapel Service had a special inclusion with the unveiling of the OGA's centenary gift to the School, a beautiful icon ‘Jesus Blesses the Children’. This icon complements the Chapel of St Mary’s existing icon ‘Madonna and Child with Eucalyptus Trees’, both of which have been 'written' by Ms Giada Dalli Cani, a St Mary’s staff member.

The Centenary Dinner completed the day, with over 200 Old Girls commemorating their own reunions, catching up with former classmates and celebrating the presentation of the Women of Distinction Awards.

It was lovely to see so many alumnae kicking off our Centenary in style and true St Mary’s fashion – making it all about our community of maroon.
