Alumni Awards

One of the most significant elements of the Sancta Sophia College vision is to create citizens who ‘Walk in Wisdom’.

Many alumni have embodied this vision within their life of service, their achievements in their chosen field of endeavour or profession, or service to their community or society at a national or international level

Nominations for 2017 are now open. Download the nomination form here. The awards close on Friday 16 June 2017 and will be presented at the 2017 Gala Dinner on 5 August. Tickets for the Dinner are available here

One way that alumni are recognised is through the Sancta Alumni Awards which are held annually. There are 2 main categories of awards:

The Sancta Sophia College Alumni Award

Alumni may be recognised for their outstanding efforts over a sustained period in one or more of the award criteria.

The Sancta Sophia College Young Alumni Award

This award recognises the achievements of alumni under the age of 40 years, who can be shown to have made a significant impact in his or her field of endeavour in one or more of the award criteria.

The Award Criteria for both areas are:

• cultural contribution
• philanthropic endeavours
• social welfare and impact
• innovation and entrepreneurship
• professional achievement
• religious service
• academia
• sporting achievement
• international achievement


• Nominations generally open in April/May each year. They must be made by a member of the Sancta Sophia College alumni or community (Sancta families and staff).  The nomination should indicate why the Nominator considers the Nominee worthy of the award.
• Self – nominations will be accepted.
• The nomination should be no more than 3 pages in length. Brief nominations are encouraged.
• The nomination should address the criteria for selection clearly and succinctly. A short resume of up to three pages may be appended to the nomination to illustrate the Nominee’s career and achievements; this is not an essential requirement. Other appendices will not be accepted.
• The assistance of the Nominee may be sought in compiling the nomination.
