Happy 30th to Nagle Catholic College

22 March 2023

Nagle Catholic College in Geraldton celebrated its 30th year as a College last week.

The special day was blessed by Bishop Michael Morrissey and Fr. Bernard at a whole school Founders’ Mass. Students heard from long serving staff members who gave insights into some of the challenges and excitement of amalgamating the existing all-girls school, Stella Maris College, and all-boys school, St. Patrick’s College, into one in the 1990s.

In the afternoon the entire College community engaged in the Saint Patrick’s Day Games, a tradition in place well before the amalgamation!

The College’s Deputy Principal, Mr Damian Ramos, will travel to Ireland this month with his family and will gift a photograph of the school community to the community of Cork on 26th of April, the anniversary of Nano Nagle’s death. The gift serves as a tribute to the significance and inspiration Nano Nagle and the Presentation Sisters had and continue to have on the education of young people across the world.

In this, its 30th year, the College remembers how we are all called as Christians to be ‘people of the lantern’. Just as Nano Nagle was inspired by Jesus to bring light to those who needed it, shining her lantern in the dark streets of Cork at night, so too do we as we as the living Church answer the call to be the ‘light of the world’.
