St Mary's College is a co-educational Catholic College in St Kilda East and Windsor established in late 2020.

We cherish our past and celebrate the many outstanding men educated by Christian Brothers College (CBC) and the women of Presentation College Windsor (PCW); the two schools who came before us, our founding schools, whose history has been intertwined for over 140 years.  It is our endeavour at St Mary's College to preserve our past and form a strong collegial network of past students.

Our history is strong and dates back to the 1870's when the Christian Brothers and Presentation Sisters left Ireland to provide education to the marginalized Irish Catholics of Melbourne, at St Mary's Parish in St Kilda East and Windsor. The two schools' history and its community has shared the Catholic values of compassion and service and provided values driven education for thousands of Melbournians.

If you are a past student, we encourage you to register your contact details with us. We will keep your details private, used only to contact you with news of St Mary's College, invitations to events and ways to connect with fellow Alumni. If you have any questions regarding the use of your details please contact: Elaine Doyle, Director of Development, email: smcalumni@stmaryscollege.vic.edu.au   ph: +61 3 9529 6611.

ALUMNIStories

ALUMNINoticeboard

In 2021 St Mary's College is in its first year as a co-educational Catholic secondary school in inner Melbourne. The Class of 2021 will be the first graduating class for the College. We are very proud of the Class of 21, who have adapted to change, who have instilled inclusivity in all they do, have been exemplary leaders and role models to the younger students.

In time, this St Mary's College noticeboard space will be filled with reunions of the Class of 21 and those who follow. It will hold stories of their achievements and endeavours. Our College is strengthened by those who have come before us and their values of caring for others a common bond that ties the generations of thousands of Melbournians who have been educated by our school(s). We are acutely aware of the value of our Alumni Network and look forward to the continuation of fellowship and belonging to St Mary's College.

The Presentation Sisters formed Presentation College Windsor (PCW) in 1879 at 187Dandenong Road Winsdor, where it operated as a Catholic girls’ school until its closure in 2020. St Mary’s College now operates its Catholic co-educational Presentation Campus at this site. St Mary’s College is a proud custodian of the history of PCW site, history boards adorn the buildings as we respect and maintain the site as a working school. The PCW Heritage Centre is located on-site and is the home of the Past Pupils Association - Women of Windsor. It is a meeting place and management site for the archival history and artifacts of PCW.

St Mary’s College fosters a strong link with the Past Pupils of PCW and their achievements at the College and in society. Alumnae honour boards adorn the Presentation Hall, a record of past PCW student achievements that inspire our current students. We welcome PCW Alumnae groups to hold reunions on site and use the Chapel, please contact the College to make a booking.
