The end of Term 3 is this coming Friday. I wish all girls a safe and relaxing break. Term 4 commences for all students on Monday 14 October.
Closure of Victoria Road during School Holidays
The College has received notification about the full closure of Victoria Road during the coming holidays. Victoria Road will be closed between Marist Place and O’Connell Street, from 8pm Sunday 29 September to 5am Tuesday 8 October. This will be a full 24 hour closure - days and nights.
Alumnae Reunion Day
The College’s Alumnae held its annual Reunion Day on Sunday here at the College. It was great to see over 200 ex-students gather for Mass in the Mother Mary Clare Dunphy Chapel. This was followed by a luncheon in the Edith Angel Hall where a special 130 Year Anniversary cake was cut by one of our oldest Alumnae members – Gloria McGrath. It’s wonderful to take opportunities such as these to celebrate the College’s long and rich Alumnae tradition which dates back to the early 20th century.
