We bid our farewells to the Class of 2023, following a week of activities and events celebrating our Year 12s. From shared lunches and graduation bears, to discos and dodgeball, breakfast in pyjamas and assemblies, the last week with our Year 12s was one of fun, frivolity and lots of nostalgia.

On Friday 13 October, we closed a chapter in the lives of a cohort of remarkable young women who have brought so much to our College community during their years at St Columba’s. As our newest alumnae embark on their new journeys, they take with them the indelible mark of the St Columba’s College community, that not only nurtured their minds but also their spirits.

These young women have proven themselves to be the best and brightest. Not only in their commitment to their learning but also in the participation in College life, embodying the College’s values of Truth, Love, Compassion, Hope and Justice.

As this new chapter takes shape, we hope our 2023 cohort take with them all that they learned and experienced at the College. Take with you the spirit of the Mary Aikenhead and the Sisters of Charity, whose vision, innovation and tenacity, gave us our school and brought positive change to the lives of countless people around the world for more than 200 years.

We know that you will do great things, reach great heights and be people of integrity. We are proud to call you St Columba’s College alumnae. May your journey be filled with success, fulfillment, and the enduring values you have embraced here. God bless you on this new adventure!
