Ex-student receives a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM)

At the 2022 Opening School Mass, Principal Lucie Farrugia took the opportunity to formally congratulate Sister Barbara McDonough rsm on receiving an OAM on Australia Day.

A Parramatta Sister of Mercy and ex-student of OLMC, Sister Barbara was recognised for her service to education and to the church alongside over 1000 recipients across the country. This is an amazing and well-deserved honour for Sister Barbara McDonough who has so generously served our College community for many decades including by playing a pivotal role in our Alumnae Association. The College's Student Services centre, refurbished in 2012, was named after Sister Barabara McDonough.
