Campus Update


We are pleased to advise that over the holiday period we have upgraded new signage in and around both Campuses, including a new 5 metre backlit monument sign at the Main Entrance to the Presentation Campus. The second phase of the new signage will include further backlit signs on the Presentation and Edmund Rice Campuses as well as a 3.5 metre backlit monument sign on the corner of Dandenong Road and Westbury Street.  The new signage is expected to be completed during Term 2.


We also purchased 12 new ovens for the Food Technology area of the College.  We are grateful for the support of the St Mary’s College Parents and Friends who funded the purchase of the new ovens. Staff and students are very excited about the arrival of the new ovens and they will certainly be put to good use.
