Since 1910 when St Margaret’s College first opened its gate on Armagh Street, Inspiring Women have been part of who we are; from our two name sakes, St Margaret of Scotland and St Margaret of Antioch to our founders, our teachers and our girls.
We are committed to educating young women to live and lead and celebrating the successes of the women around us and who came before us is part of that journey.
These pages are about Inspiring Women who are inspiring other women.
