Collegiate Alumni Association

St Michael’s Collegiate Alumni Association (St.M.C.A.A) connects thousands of former students around the state, the country and the globe.

Formed in 1927, St.M.C.A.A was established to foster a sense of community among Collegiate’s former students and to assist them to maintain lifelong contact with each other and with the School.

Over our more than 125 year history, many thousands of students have been through our doors. They have forged such diverse paths in their lives and some have helped shape the communities in which they now live. As a school, we are proud of their ideas, passion and achievements. They are Olympians, Rhodes Scholars, familiar faces on TV and scientists making ground-breaking advances. They are nurses and teachers, mothers and carers. We celebrate them for making a difference and for inspiring future generations to do the same.

FUNDRAISING

St.M.C.A.A raises funds for specific school projects each year. This is achieved principally from the operation of the Performing Arts Centre (PAC) kiosk. Volunteers to work in the PAC kiosk are always welcome. 

Tremayne Club

The Tremayne Club is made up of a very special group of Old Girls who left Collegiate fifty or more years ago.

Meeting regularly throughout the year, the Tremayne Club gives members the opportunity to catch up with old school friends in welcoming, comfortable and cheerful surroundings. Members of the Tremayne Club are invited to Collegiate throughout the year for a series of special activities such as meetings with the Principal, luncheons and special St Michael’s Day and Founders’ Day celebrations. The Tremayne Club is also involved in important school events and celebrations.

The leader of the Tremayne Club is Mrs Diane Palmer (Gordon, 1955), assisted by Mrs Rosanne McDougall (Morrisby, 1953).

The Tremayne Collection

The Tremayne Collection is a gift to the School from the Tremayne Club. Each year, an artwork created by a Year 11 or 12 student is selected. The artist receives the Tremayne Prize at Speech Night and, in turn, the work is given to the School where it is hung or placed for all to appreciate.
