Giving at Star of the Sea College

As a Presentation community, we strive to live out our motto, ‘Facta non Verba’ (Deeds not Words) in ways that inspire and reflect compassionate action for a just world. We do this in the spirit of our founder Nano Nagle, who led by example and with integrity. Nano’s life and work reflect her lifelong commitment to taking positive action for justice that transforms the world.

A gift to Star of the Sea College enables the College to continue in this tradition, shaping futures for our students who will ultimately go out into the world and contribute in meaningful and positive ways.

The operational costs at Star are covered by school fees and government grants, but making a donation to the College allows for transformational change in our buildings and grounds and to the diversity of our student population.

It is through your generosity that the students at Star are able to follow their academic and personal interests in surroundings which engender self-belief and encourage an outward focus to the world. 

It takes a community, the Star Community!

We are very grateful for the ongoing generosity and financial support we receive from our Star community. Parents, past students, staff, members of our broader community and local businesses help us deliver our vision, building a brighter future for our College.

Any financial contribution to the school – large or small – makes an important difference to our students.

Donations made to the College support the Bursary Fund and the Building Fund. Both funds provide an equally important function, to support the well-being and educational needs of our students.

Bursary Fund – The Gift of Education

The College Bursary Fund helps families in need cover the costs of education, including: 

  • Current families facing unexpected financial challenges 
  • New families who are unable to afford to send their child to Star of the Sea College (including past students) 

Your gift is allocated by our Bursary Committee to families requiring support.

Building Fund – Building our Future

Contributing to our building fund is a way for you to be actively involved in the future of Star of the Sea College. Having successfully completed the refurbished Heritage Building in 2022 we look forwards towards the next stage of our building vision as outlined in our 20-year College Master Plan.
