Between 1870 and 2003, the Sisters of St Joseph opened sixty-nine Parish primary schools, forty-six of which are still continuing, five Parish secondary schools, and our own College, which was the only secondary school owned by the Congregation.  On Friday 16 March three of those schools came together for the first joint Student Symposium. Led by Ms Susan Goves, teachers and students from Our Lady's College Annerley, Clairvaux MacKillop College at Mt Gravatt and Mary MacKillop College came together to develop a united mission for walking in Mary MacKillop's footsteps.

Those gathered for the afternoon heard from speakers representative of JJAMM, Josephite Associates and the Sisters of Saint Joseph. Ms Mary Hilton, Mrs Catherine Rodden, Sr Chris Symonds, Sr Angela Carroll and Sr Valerie Huston (past Corpus Christi student), all addressed the students and challenged them to take time to truly know themselves in order to help and serve others and to be change agents who make a difference.
