Sr Shanahan had, and continues to have, a significant impact on the culture and direction of Sancta Sophia College. She is much loved by all those students who lived at Sancta during her days as Vice Principal and then Principal, and now still by today’s students who meet her at the College or know her through her association at Kincoppal Rose Bay.
It is important that we mark Sr Shanahan’s time here and honour her enormous contribution to Sancta. There can be no more fitting way to do this than through the establishment of a scholarship in her name that will last into perpetuity. Sr Shanahan has helped to set the criteria for the scholarship, which is in line with her focus on the important aspects that contribute to all all-round student.
Our goal is $600,000 to be raised by 2018. This will endow the scholarship so that it will be available to Sancta students for the long term.
A major focus of the 90 Year Anniversary Celebrations was the Sr Mary Shanahan Scholarship Fundraising Dinner, which was held on 30 April, 2016. See the Q&A between Sr Mary Shanahan and Geraldine Doogue from the Dinner here
