From the President

It has been another very busy year for the OGA, with our Coordinator, Jacqui Daniels, working flat out three days a week organising programs, reunions, other events, the Mentoring Project, Life Lessons in a Lunchbox, movie night and fun run fundraising events, Mother/daughter High Tea, the OGA Service Program and more. We are looking forward to what the new year brings!

Blast From The Past

Year 9 students had the pleasure of interviewing some of our Old Girls at a morning tea. The occasion was filled with lots of knowledge about the history of the school and what has changed.

1 School, A 1000 Memories

We are calling for past students who want to share their memories of schooling at Santa Maria College. Please share your school memories with us.

Mentoring Project

“I have really enjoyed being a part of this program as it has provided me with another person to talk to and get advice from. Through talking to my mentor, I have discovered there are many career paths you can take and there are many ways to get into a certain career. I am very keen to keep my relationship with my mentor going into the future and keep talking to her regularly.” Sarah Scott


Santa Maria College, enhanced by the welcoming smiles of present day pupils on the lawn, to the parting promises of ex-students. The Golden Girls lunch was another lovely occasion. Numbers may have been down a little this year, though the joy of seeing a familiar face and the surprise of seeing other ex-students (thanks to the helpful name tags) renews the companionship.

We Need You

Can you help the OGA? In 2018 we are looking for Old Girls to give their time and memories by guest speaking, mentoring, serving and much more.

The Big Wide World

We are inviting Old Girls to promote their business in the Santa Maria Business Directory app. Emma Ritchie (2012) is the Designer & Owner of Pretty Pool Swimwear & Sarah Henn (2009) works at UWA.


We say farewell to Georgina Guidi (2015) and Jacob Steber for their wonderful contribution to the OGA over the past few terms. They have been a great resource and have made valuable contributions to the OGA. We wish them every sucess in their future endeavours.


Remember to keep your contact details current so we can stay in touch!

This month on SchoolTV – Surviving Year 12

The final year of secondary school is a year of hard work and a huge commitment for students. With so much going on it can be hard to find the balance between study and life. It is a time when personalities start to emerge, there are more complex interpersonal relationships and there is the pressure to perform academically.
