The Tarmons building is a symbol of community. It is solid, tangible evidence that we believe in a common goal and have faith in the future. Tarmons is full of memories for multiple generations.
Back in the early days, the Sisters lived by a strong belief in the value of a girls’ education. They believed in the strength of a Catholic Faith and a life supporting the growth of the individual. It was with this approach in mind that they established originally, a primary school and then, a secondary school. It was the renovated Tarmons building where the first students were accommodated, and that’s the way it remained for many years.
Today, with a modern, versatile and inviting campus, St Vincent’s continues to provide a high standard of education. The College encourages excellence, critical inquiry, independence in learning and above all, commitment to truth and personal integrity.
Most recently, the Tarmons Trust has been established to continue the work of the early Sisters. You can be a member of Tarmons Trust by leaving a gift in your Will to St Vincent’s College. You can play your part in our future.
Modern, user-friendly spaces are blended with splendid historical buildings in an overall Sydney setting that is at once, practical, inspiring and unique.
St Vincent's college is such a safe, supported environment. Every day girls have wonderful opportunities to openly discuss topical, ethical, social and global issues.
The College fosters creativity, discernment and leadership in the development of students to be courageous women of action. Our College values are: Generosity of Spirit, Hope, Justice, Respect and Service of the Poor. For all who treasure such a priceless approach to a broad based education, it is natural to want to see it continue.
No matter how gratifying our past and how successful and rewarding our present, there are no guarantees for the long term future of the College. Government funding can come and go. New rules can be introduced. The more we can be independent, the more likely we can secure a rewarding future for the students still to come.
Tarmons Trust is all about passing on to generations of girls, meaningful and valuable educational options. It is your opportunity for your legacy to be part of St Vincent's College in the years ahead. The girls of the future will be so grateful.
