St Margaret Mary's
College

Mission statement

St Margaret Mary’s College is a Catholic learning community where young women are educated, inspired and inspirited. True to the story of the Good Samaritan, we are people of hope, who live compassionately and justly.

We respond to the call from Jesus to be a neighbour to all. “Who is my neighbour? The one who showed mercy. Go and do likewise.” (Lk 10:36-37)
