Mount Alvernia College

Educating young women in the Franciscan tradition


Adolescent Success Visit

Date: August 9, 2019    Posted by: Camilla Horn

Recently the college community was privileged to host a visit from around Australia – teachers and leaders from Tasmania, South Australia, the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, the Northern Territory, and Queensland were able to experience a little of a day in the life of a Mt A student.

We were able to showcase classrooms in action, our beautiful environment, and our Student Leadership program.

Our visitors were very impressed by the teachers, the environment and, most importantly, the girls. They all commented on the level of expertise and depth of knowledge, understanding, and authenticity that the girls were able to articulate of who we are and what we do here at Mt A.

Everyone was blown away by the gardens, and all left with something to consider – from our transition programs, to our classroom environments, to our gardens and use of them, and to our Student Leade rship program.  They said they visibly saw and experienced the connections and the level of relationship building, and felt very welcomed by all.
