Alumni and the Ex-Students’ Association

Our alumni community is all about staying connected.

We have a vibrant and active global network of past students with remarkable achievements, who continue to enrich the Santa Sabina College community. The Ex-Students’ Association and the College’s Alumni Officer are the points of contact for former students.

There are a number of opportunities for different generations of Santa Sabina ex-students and their families to maintain their lifelong Dominican connection. Alumni come together for reunions, career networking, playgroups, Social Justice initiatives and College events.

Past students can play an important role both in the alumni community and in the lives of students. As mentors, they can provide current and past students with exciting opportunities and advice as they embark on their future careers.

We encourage our alumni of all generations to stay connected through our Facebook page – like our page and discover a great forum for engaging with past students and keeping up to date with College news and events.

Annual General Meeting

Notice is given of the Santa Sabina Ex-Students’ Association Annual General Meeting to be held on 11 October 2022 commencing at 7:30pm.

What we are up to: One of our new initiatives this year was the International Women’s Day Dinner which we co-hosted with the Parents and Friends and the College. We also launched our podcast series, Exceptional, stories and conversations about ex-students. To celebrate our centenary we offered a scholarship to the daughter of an ex-student. We are also raising funds for our fellowships for younger ex-students to assist with undertaking research, educational travel, professional development or humanitarian or aid work. Our Melbourne Cup lunch will be held at Angelo’s Cabarita.
