The Tarmons Trust is a newly established recognition society through which we will honour those who have decided to support the College through their Will.
From the outset of St Vincent’s College, Tarmons has been an important name. Tarmons was the name of the grand house purchased by the Sisters in which they established the first St Vincent’s Hospital and then school. Then Tarmons was used as the Convent. The name is now enshrined in the major teaching block that stands where the original house once stood. The name evokes different memories for different generations of graduates of the College but for all current and ex-students, Tarmons is the most highly revered place-name on the campus, and it has therefore been bestowed to this newly created recognition society as a sign of deep gratitude.
Today, with a modern, versatile and inviting campus, St Vincent’s College 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.
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.
The Tarmons Trust has been established to perpetuate 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 expanding the horizons of our young women.
Now you have the opportunity to add to that tradition. Through the Tarmons Trust, you can make the College part of your personal legacy by leaving a gift in your Will.
No matter how gratifying our past and how successful and rewarding our present, there are no guarantees for the long-term outlook 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 an ideal opportunity for your legacy to be entwined with the ‘Vinnies Spirit’ for generations to come.
Through the generosity of those who join the Tarmons Trust, St Vincent’s College will be able to continue to provide the scholarships and bursaries necessary to retain the diversity and capacity of our student body; and to make provision for the building and refurbishment of the College to ensure it retains contemporary, versatile and inviting learning spaces.
Your trust in the future of the College is greatly appreciated.
Your trust, our future – an enduring legacy towards a Vinnies education for our next generation of courageous women of action.
