Mary Immaculate School turns 100

As our school approaches its Centenary in 2017, we are searching for past students, teachers, parents and school staff who attended or worked at Mary Immaculate School (St Joseph’s Convent/The Ipswich Road Convent) in the past decades. We would love to hear from you and invite you to join us for our Centenary celebrations on the weekend of April 29/30th, 2017. On Saturday, 29th April, the school is hosting a Night Under the Stars reunion celebration in the school grounds from 4 pm to 8 pm. This will be a ticketed event with the price to be confirmed. Our special guest will be Hugh Lunn, celebrated author of the best selling childhood memoir, Over the Top with Jim, recounting his school days at Mary Immaculate Primary school in the 1950s.

On Sunday, 30th April, Archbishop Mark Coleridge will celebrate our Centennial mass in Mary Immaculate Church, followed by a Sunday Roast lunch in the grounds of Mary Immaculate School.
