As the 16th Principal of Star of the Sea College, I acknowledge the Presentation Sisters and lay Principals who have come before me, and I am mindful of my responsibility in carrying forward their legacy. The College’s mission, vision and values have informed the academic and co-curricular programs since 1883, true to the principles of our founders Mothers John Byrne and Paul Fay.
Star of the Sea College provides a contemporary education that fosters the development of the whole person. We offer an excellent learning environment with inspiring teachers and innovative programs. Our students develop a passion for learning, are empowered to understand the complexities of the world, and become courageous, creative, respectful and ethical women of action, prepared to make their mark on the world.
‘…we strive to prepare young women to achieve their potential and be change agents for a better world.’
Armed with empathy, collaboration, cooperation and critical-thinking skills, we strive to prepare young women to achieve their potential and be change agents for a better world. In doing so, they are able to live out the College motto: ‘Deeds not Words’.

Principal, Star of the Sea College
