St Mary's College


When you are so far away it is vital that you are 100% sure that your daughter is being cared for.

At St Mary’s College we are very proud of our Catholic Mercy tradition which stretches back 150 years. In that time we have educated thousands of young women, following the spirit and values of Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy who are our proprietors.
