125th Anniversary

A Special Celebration

1892 - 2017

In 2017, St Michael's Collegiate is proud to be celebrating 125 years of exceptional education for girls.

Since 1892, Collegiate has continued its distinguished contribution to girl’s education by remaining true to the heritage of our founding Sisters. Their traditions and values continue to inspire and guide the workings of the School today. We are a close-knit community and proud of our heritage.

Inspiration for the future

For well over a century, many thousands of girls have been educated at Collegiate. They have helped shape our global community and many continue to make remarkable contributions across numerous fields of endeavor. In this, our 125th year, we celebrate them for making a difference and for inspiring future generations to do the same.
