Chanelle was a student at St Mary's College from Year 8 to Year 12 beginning in 2000 and graduating in 2005. She helped in various committees, performed in many school plays and ran for Social Justice because she loved St Mary's and the morals and values it holds.
25 years ago, in 1993, Lucy Keough stepped onto the grounds of St Mary's. A Reception student starting her first day of school and beginning her journey of exploring the rich culture and stories of St Mary's.
Lucy observed many building improvements during her 13 years at the college, including the development of the St Catherine's Courtyard and Science laboratories (on land which used to be a car yard when she first started school). Throughout Lucy's life, she will always value her friendships and remember the strong social justice values of the college.
Carina, a former Year 8 to 12 student of SMC, recalls being part of the sporting community; this involvement was where she was happiest and most excited.
College events that Carina loved were special days that raised awareness or funds, such as Harmony Day and International Women's Day. The strong social justice focus of St Mary's built strong relationships between students, and showed them the benefits of supporting people who are doing it tough.
