The construction of the Mary Glowrey Centre will coincide with the college celebrating the 70th anniversary of its Norwood campus.

The cause for the canonisation of Dr Sr Mary Glowrey (1887-1957), whose story featured in the December edition of The Southern Cross, commenced in 2010. Her niece, also Sr Mary Glowrey, is a Little Company of Mary Sister who lives in North Adelaide.

Information on her life story has been provided to the college by the Mary Glowrey Museum in Melbourne.

“The Norwood Junior School campus has entered an exciting chapter in the life of the college as we prepare to undertake what will be the most significant building project here in nearly 20 years,” said Nic Boys, head of Junior School.

“Hosting an amphitheatre, STEM facilities, music classes, tuition rooms an indoor gymnasium and new Year 6 classrooms, we are building an enlivening legacy for our children and future generations.”

The new centre has been supported by the college’s philanthropic efforts and borrowings.
