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.
In 2024, Santa Maria College will celebrate its 120-year milestone - that's 120 years of incredible history and the Santa Spirit!It's a chance to reflect on cherished memories and the enduring spirit that defines our college and community.
