This month, Saint Maroun's College, Dulwich Hill, will hold a Jubilee Mass to mark the 50th Anniversary since the school's founding.

Saint Maroun's College was established by the Maronite Sisters of the Holy Family at the request of the Head of the Maronite Church in Australia.

Since it's opening, Saint Maroun's College has been a central part of the Dulwich Hill community and a touchstone for generations of Lebanese Australians in the inner west.

For over 50 years, the school has offered children from all backgrounds a wonderful and inclusive school experience and provided the Lebanese Maronite community a safe space for their cultural and spiritual education.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Saint Maroun's College's new Principal, Dr Margaret Ghosn, and hearing about her future plans for the school and community. I am confident that in Dr Ghosn's capable hands, the future of Saint Maroun's College is brighter than ever.

I offer my warmest congratulations to all the staff, students, alumni and broader community at Saint Maroun's College on this achievement and wish you all the best as you continue Growing the minds of young inner westies for decades to come.
