Storyboard Text

  • St. Mary of the angels Secondary College was established by the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM) sisters in 1961.
  • SMOTA was not funded by the government, so the sisters relied on the locals in Nathalia. Including the community, friends and family.
  • The first lay teacher came to the school in 1967. A lay teacher is a teacher that is not a nun. Back in 1967, having a lay teacher as a teacher was a very big deal, however, now most teachers are lay teachers.
  •  The pioneer sisters were Mother Mary, Sr. Gertrude, Sr. Cecilia and Sr. Laurentia. The school was opened on February 8th 1961.
  • St. Mary of the angels Secondary College's logo is the dove. The dove symbolises the Holy Spirit.                                     The school's motto is "Thy Will Be Done".                                It symbolises Mary's response at the Annunciation.
  • SMOTA's own bus system was put in place in 1975.
  • The 1st principal at SMOTA was Sr. Maureen Banyard who was principal from 1961 until 1974.
  • The pioneer sisters came over to Australia from London to built St. Mary of the Angels Secondary College in Nathalia. They were transferred to Australia in 1961.
  • St. Mary of the Angels Secondary College was not originally a secondary college. When the school was first built, St. Francis and SMOTA were a combined school. However in 1977, SMOTA and St. Francis separated into 2 schools. St. Francis made into a primary school and SMOTA made into a secondary school.
