From the Principal

We commend all students on their start to the academic year at Siena, grateful for the support of families and staff.

Our staff are an integral part of our College community, they are passionate and bring a wealth of experience in their areas of expertise which help shape the education and the future of our students. We congratulate the following staff who have been appointed to positions of leadership and we also take this opportunity to welcome the following staff who joined Siena College in 2023.

In the many communications issued to parents at this time of year, our College Newsletter aims to provide you with important updates and brief insights into life at Siena College. The images shown below capture the spirit of Siena coming to life with the return of students last week.

We wish all students and families a wonderful Term 1. Please be in touch with your daughter’s Head of House if she is in need of any support.

A Prayer for the New Year

We give thanks for all that has sustained us over the summer break.
We welcome and celebrate all who join our community, bringing new life and energy.
We pray for all members of our community in particular need at this time.

As we enter this year, we pray for wisdom, compassion and laughter.
We pray that all might sustain their commitment to the enduring values of Siena College
And our commitment to authentically sustaining our relationships and our world.

God of hope,
You offer us life in abundance
And the opportunity to experience joy and meaning in our lives.

We give thanks for the many and surprising ways you sustain us each day
And pray for the grace to be people of peace within our community.

May the 2023 school year be enriched by friendship, deep learning and growth for all.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord, Amen
