Having a strong past student body is not only important for recognising the achievements of the past but also for maintaining the Santa Spirit which binds our girls to their former classmates and teachers. The fine example of excellence exhibited by our past students encourages our present students to take pride in our history and to understand the importance of their role as women of the future.
Alumnae of Santa Maria never lose their interest in or love of the College. We currently have almost 6,000 past students and staff on our Past Students’ Register. Membership is automatic for all those leaving the school. Santa Maria Old Collegians Association (SMOCA) members receive a newsletter twice a year and there is also a reunion held each year.
The College is currently looking into more ways to ensure the Alumnae remain a major force within the College, such as through mentoring and attending as guest speakers, awards and scholarships for our current students..
Many current students have mothers, grandmothers, aunts and sisters who attended Santa Maria College and this truly adds to the spirit of community within the school.
Reunions are a fantastic way to reconnect with your Santa Maria class mates. At Santa Maria College, lifelong bonds are formed and our past students remain deeply attached to the place where their education and spiritual values were shaped. Many return years later with their own daughters. Our past students hold deep affection and respect for the College. Their sense of connectedness is an ongoing source of inspiration for current students.
