Guest groups included:

  • A Year 12 retreat from a regional SA high school
  • A tour group from a regional SA high school
  • A group from a Melbourne high School
  • A Professor from Spain who was here on professional exchange with a university in Adelaide

  • Teach for Australia, who held a conference for 17 attendees in our Enterprise Deck

The Teach for Australia Conference was a great success, and we were delighted to also host The Honourable Blair Boyer, Minister for Education, Training and Skills, who came to address the group.  He expressed a passion for St Ann’s College having attended a residential college himself, and spoke beautifully and generously. His assistant Gary has two sons who are St Ann’s Collegians, and were students here in the early 2000’s. Teach for Australia also arranged a  passionate Welcome to Country Ceremony hosted by Uncle John, which was very moving and personable.
