St Mary’s is a community built over 140 years by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and continues to this day as a close network of committed staff, students, parents and the wider community, both past and present, building strong relationships and creating meaningful connections.
Our Alumnae are frequent visitors to the college! They:
- Are guest speakers at College and Year assemblies
- Attend careers expos at the college
- Assist students with practice for languages especially in HSC years
Our past parents and alumnae are active in committees and on the College Board
St Mary’s has a strong connection with Wollongong University. Our Kulilla Centre, in partnership with The University of Wollongong, hosts 5th year Intern Psychologists for supervised practice. These students are supervised at St Mary’s College by Simonne Elise, College Psychologist and have the opportunity to work with individual students for counselling and assessments.
St Mary’s Staff assist with the St Vincent De Paul van on a rotational basis to distribute food to the homeless and the less fortunate in our community
St Mary's students work with the wider community through our many clubs and committees. An example of this is the local Rotary Club, whose members regularly attend the Interact school club meetings in support of their fund raising projects.
