Giving to Collegiate's future, today

For over 125 years, Collegiate has empowered young women to make a difference in the world.

Collegiate graduates are dreaming big and creating change around the world every day.  They are leaders in engineering, health and medical sciences, visual and performing arts, food production, linguistics, banking and finance, law, environmental and agricultural sciences.

All of this excellence began with an exceptional, values-based education at St Michael's Collegiate School.

The generosity of the Collegiate community has played an important role in the development of Collegiate. In past years, donations from parents and Old Girls have brought to life the Pool and Gymnasium complex, the McNeill Performing Arts Centre, the art studios, and most recently, the Emily Centre – a 21st century state-of-the-art learning hub for girls.

Collegiate is daring to imagine again. A major upgrade of our Science classrooms will bring to life a 21st-century learning centre to prepare current and future students for their roles in STEM careers. We ask you, as parents, as Old Girls and as valued members of the Collegiate community to invest in the future of Collegiate STEM education – not just for the benefit of your daughters, granddaughters and future students, but for the benefit of the global community where Collegiate women will continue to make their mark.

We know that aside from being an inspiring place in which to learn, great facilities also draw inspiring people to a workplace. Collegiate is proud to announce that in 2017, Science and Mathematics teacher, Mr Glenn Carmichael, was recognised as an Apple Distinguished Educator – one of only 22 teachers across the country.

Please consider donating today. We welcome your support for the Collegiate science facilities upgrade, our libraries, scholarships or building funds. You can make a donation by completing the Giving Form below, or by contacting Principal, Dr Adam Forsyth, via (03) 6211 4908 or email.

An Enduring Gift

A gift in your Will to the School is the most powerful and enduring way to support and shape the future of the next generations of Collegiate girls.

Since 1892 Collegiate has been offering a Christian values-based education providing a firm basis for girls to succeed in their chosen lives. Our alumnae, in many fields and for over 130 years, have proven the worth of that education. The School is committed to ensuring that we sustain these values and principles as we prepare girls for the new opportunities and challenges of a changing world.

Whether large or small, a gift in your Will can have an enduring impact on the lives of young people and provide a lasting benefit for generations to come.

For more information on how to leave a gift contact the Principal, Dr Adam Forsyth, via (03) 6211 4908 or email [email protected]
