Tenison Woods College and its predecessors, St Paul’s School, Tenison College, Marist Brothers Agricultural College, Mater Christi College, St Mary’s School & St Joseph’s College, value the contributions of all students past and present. The “Shining Light” Awards recognise significant contributions by former students, staff or catholic community members to the local and global community. By recognising these outstanding citizens, the College hopes to inspire current and future students, as well as celebrating the rich history of Catholic education in South East South Australia. Each year in October, we celebrate a group of shining lights who have been nominated and selected as worthy recipients.
