Event back on! Taster Day 5 August 2020

​On 5 August 2020 our annual St Mary’s College Taster Day has been rebooked! 

Year six students from all our local primary schools are invited to enjoy an amazing day experiencing secondary life at St Mary’s.


The original date for this exciting event was postponed due to the COVID-19 restrictions but St Mary's College is now pleased to be able to once again offer this experience to interested students. Much planning has been completed to ensure the highest safety procedures will be maintained to keep our children and the whole community safe.


Book your student now to EXPERIENCE Taster Day!

In the morning our Year 6 guests will experience a taste of the College Pastoral care activities that are a valued morning occurrence for all our students.

To get to know the College a Scavenger Hunt is planned. Students are able to delightfully explore around the College to find everything that makes up the wonderful St Mary’s campus. Included in this hunt is sure to be, familiar names such as our Student Receptionist, Mrs Wheeler, the location of our CITADEL, Pastoral Leaders and the Middle Years classrooms and most importantly, the famous St Mary’s Tuckshop the Nosh Pit.

Lunch time this year will be self-supplied by each guest student (due to Covid-19) and entertainment will be provided by the St Mary's student body - performances from our College Dance Crew and games co-ordinated by our senior students.


In the afternoon all students get to ‘discover’ a variety of different secondary classes to truly experience the life of a Year Seven student they will participate in rotational games with our Middle schooling teachers. After a quick ice block break and Q&A opportunity. Our student guests will finish the afternoon with games with Mr McGahan and our Year 11 Certificate II Sport and Recreation students


All our teachers are looking forward to a fantastic day meeting so many new smiling faces at the College.

In previous years many students have told staff how much they enjoyed the day, with one boy last year even announcing, “This is definitely my High School!” What wonderful feedback! Thank you for considering St Mary's College we invite you to book your child in to this exciting event and let them discover why they may like to become a St Mary's College Student.

We are looking forward to seeing you for Taster Day 2020.​
