As parents and teachers, we can learn from our Olympians. We need to talk to our girls about managing disappointment, the worst-case scenario, and how they can move forward—reframing failure as an opportunity to grow and learn.
Ursula Frayne and the Sisters of Mercy were women of courage who lived our Mercy values and who continue to be wonderful role models for our community. We remember and give thanks to all who have been part of this heritage. This year, we celebrate the 175th anniversary of Ursula Frayne and the sister’s arrival in the Swan River colony.
The GROW program underpins our culture of improvement and our value of ‘Excellence’ at Santa Maria College. It is an integral ingredient in providing excellence in girls’ education. We are so fortunate to have such an incredible team of growth-focused teachers focussed on both themselves and their students.
