MSM Graduates of 2002 and 2010 Reunions
Due to the complexities of Covid the Class of 2010 were unable to go ahead with their 10 Year Reunion in 2020. The 2010 graduates celebrated their milestone on Saturday 3 September with refreshments and a tour of the College, followed by a gathering at Wilston Village Bar.
The class of 2002 also celebrated their 20 Year Reunion on Saturday 3 September. The graduates who attended enjoyed a tour of the College and followed on with a wonderful catch up at the Newmarket Hotel.
Once a MSM girl, always a MSM girl!
MSM Graduates of 1981, 1982 and 1990 Reunions
On Saturday 17 September, after two years of Covid disruptions we welcomed the Class of 1990 to the College to celebrate their 30 Year Reunion. This cohort finally had the opportunity to come together to celebrate this milestone, enjoying refreshments, sharing of stories and reminiscing during their tour of the College. Celebrations continued on at the Grove Thai Restaurant and Bar.
Also on Saturday 17 September we welcomed the classes of 1981 and 1982 to celebrate their 40 Year Reunions. The Ionian was filled with laughter, storytelling, and fun with the group then continuing on their celebrations at Darling & Co, Paddington.
A wonderful afternoon was shared by all.
It was lovely to welcome back Corporal Samantha Copus (MSM Alumni – Class of 2011) who joined us for our annual MSM Foundation Year 7 Father-Daughter Breakfast. Together with our special guest speaker, Lieutenant Colonel Jon Pollard, Commanding Officer and Chief Engineer, 12th Chief Engineer Works of the Australian Defence Force and Private Michelle Spadaro, Samantha assisted with facilitating an exciting spaghetti and marshmallow tower STEM challenge for our attendees. It was lovely to hear Samantha's career journey following graduating from MSM.
Twenty years later our 2002 College Captains Laura Morrisey and Lisa Statham are still best friends and live five minutes away from each other. Lisa is Godmother to Laura’s eldest child and they thank MSM for introducing them to each other.
Our College community was greatly saddened to hear the news of the passing of Tom Hart-Davies on Monday 3 October. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to his wife Jacky and his four children Sally, Jane, Clare and Kate (all Alumni of MSM).
As a parent, Tom was generous in giving of his time and energies to serve on the P&F Association, including two years as President. When his daughters graduated from MSM, he modelled servant leadership as he continued to support the College by his involvement as a member of the College Board and College Board Sub-Committees. Tom had input into the purchase of 46 Amarina Avenue, the lifting of the enrolment cap from 750 – 900 students due to the introduction of Year 7, the development of the Arts Precinct building and the Masterplan vision planning.
He demonstrated positivity in all that he did, and his company was life-giving. He was warm and humble, with a witty sense of humour. He epitomised our College values of love, justice, hope and compassion. Tom loved this College community and his legacy will be long remembered.
If you graduated in a year ending in three (such as 1973, 1993, 2003, etc) you are celebrating a decade-milestone in 2023.
Reunions are a fantastic way to reconnect with your Mt St Michael’s College classmates. When was the last time you made your way back to Mt St Michael’s College? Last year? Last decade? Not since graduation? Although your school years may be far behind, the friendships that began at MSM still remain or are waiting to be rediscovered. Consider visiting the College as a part of your reunion celebrations. Reunion Tours are scheduled for Saturday 18 March and a Saturday in September/October.

The smiles on the faces of our Year 12 students and their mothers says it all - it was a lovely way to celebrate the beginning of their journey towards Graduation.

Mary Aikenhead Day
As people of Charity, we joined as a College family to celebrate the life and legacy of Venerable Mary Aikenhead, the foundress of the Sisters of Charity. Our community gathered to celebrate with a Mass, followed by a fun day of mission and house activities designed to cultivate the spirit that makes MSM so wonderful.
It was an early start to a wonderful and rewarding day of competition at QSAC on Monday 15 August for the MSM Athletics team who completed in the 2022 CaSSSA Cup Athletics Carnival. A group of MSM students, that have trained tirelessly since the end of Term 2, put on a remarkable display of courage and grit to represent MSM at this event. Outsized by our competitors, the MSM team took to the track and field to compete and were rewarded with fantastic results. We couldn’t be more #MSMProud.
2022 Spirit of the Arts Festival: Elpis was a huge success! This major cultural event, vibrantly supported by the wider MSM community, celebrated the varied talents of MSM Arts students.

On Friday 14 October we had 370 staff, students and guests attend our second annual Sports Celebration Breakfast.

Thank you also to all MSM Staff and coaches (many whom are Alumni) who have supported MSM Sport this year to assist our students to achieve fantastic outcomes.
