In 2015, Siena College is celebrating seventy-five years of empowering women who go out into the world and make a difference. Our current students have a daily, lived experience of women who are leaders at all levels, from a broad based Student Representative Council, to the stories of women from past decades on whose shoulders we stand. Our patron, St Catherine of Siena, broke the bonds of what was expected of a woman in the 14th Century by speaking Truth. She challenged those in power and committed herself to a life of prayer and service of others. Our Dominican tradition places particular emphasis on diversity and the unique gifts of every person. We are energised and inspired by each other and find joy in our work, our learning and our community.
Siena College offers a richly stimulating and contemporary education that makes student learning exciting for young women. Individual talents are nurtured and young women are empowered to develop their intellect, strive for excellence, think critically, appreciate beauty and respect diversity.
A comprehensive cocurricular program enables students to pursue their interests, further develop their knowledge and skills or discover hidden talents. Programs are offered in Drama, Music, Visual Arts, Leadership, Social Justice, Debating, Public Peaking, Learning and Enhancement / Extension and Sport. As a member of Girls Sport Victoria (GSV), students have the opportunity to participate socially or compete at the elite level. Cultural and Language Immersions are offered to China, France and Italy as well as an Indigenous Immersion and South Africa Immersion Program.
Open Mornings are held regularly throughout the year from 9.30-11.00am or join us for our Open Day on Saturday, 17 October from 1.00-4.00pm. Register online at www.siena.vic.edu.au or call the College on (03) 9835 0200.
