At Ave Maria College, we pride ourselves on creating a supportive community in which our students truly feel they belong throughout their education at the College, and for many years afterwards as they become a part of our Alumnae community.
This magazine is our biannual publication on what is happening at the College and what our alumnae are up to outside of the College. Each edition has a theme and we look to profile alumnae working in a broad field or industry.Latest Ave Belong edition

Alumnae panels are an opportunity to highlight specific careers and pathways to our students, who are able to engage in live Q&As to hear from a diverse range of Alumnae across varying graduating years and journeys. This usually happens during Careers Week in mid-May but can also occur at other times.
Guest speakers are invited to speak at events such as Mother’s and Father’s Day breakfasts, Awards events, Year Level and Whole School Assemblies, and more. We also love having guest speakers in the classroom, who are able to bring theoretical learning to life by discussing real life applications.
As senior students make decisions about their pathways, we often reach out to alumnae in the selected field and encourage them to have a chat with someone who is currently studying or has recently graduated from a similar course. Hearing about the course and pathway first had is invaluable.
Please be aware that any alumnae who are engaging with our students must have a current Working With Children check (WWC) or a valid exemption. In most instances this only needs to be a ‘volunteer’ WWC which can be obtained online. You can find out more about how to get this by clicking this link: Vic Gov: Working with Children
