The Arts @ St Joseph's
Regina Arts Centre
This building was first erected to the memory of Sr Mary Regina Conway rsm and named Regina Hall at St Saviours School Toowoomba. In 2011 this building was then gifted by the Sisters of Mercy to St Joseph’s Primary School Kangaroo Point and named the Regina Arts Centre in memory of a talented musician and teacher.
Sr Mary Regina Conway over the years touched the lives of various students with her vibrant personality and musical ability, inspiring them with a love of what is best and finest in music.
The building was Blessed and Officially Opened by Most Rev Joseph Oudeman OFMCap D.D. Auxiliary Bishop for Brisbane, Fr Tom Keegan, Fr Brian Sparksman, Fr Bavin Clarke Parish Administrator on the 23rd March 2012.
During her short life Sr M Regina accomplished much and influenced many. With her passing, the Sisters of Mercy lost a great musician and a talented teacher. Her memory will live on in the hearts and minds of those she taught and loved and also now in the students of St Joseph’s Kangaroo Point as they enter the doors of the Regina Arts Centre where they will learn: speech and drama, piano, violin, cello, flute, clarinet and guitar.
At St Joseph’s, we have five music teachers and one speech and drama teacher. Clearly, we offer excellence in The Arts at St Joseph’s and well over three quarters of the school participate in our Arts program.
