Dr Sr Mary Glowrey JMJ (1887-1957) was a Victorian born and educated doctor.

She was known as Sr Mary of the Sacred Heart JMJ.

Professional learning for Teachers in 2019

The Mary Glowrey Museum plans to present more Twilight Professional Learning for teachers in 2019.
These sessions provide an opportunity for teachers to engage with Mary's story and to consider curriculum connections. The first is planned for late term 1, from 5pm - 7pm.  It will include refreshments.
The date will be advertised before the end of  the 2018 school year. Please email us at info@maryglowreymuseum.info to register your interest or for any enquiries.

Schools may consider making a booking for a staff professional learning session in 2019 for their school as part of a day program or after hours. These can be tailored to suit your school needs. Catering can be arranged.
We have received great feedback for these sessions, and valuable reflections and ideas from teachers.
