Leah Santilli is a St Monica’s College alumni and a former member of the College staff community.

During her time at St Monica’s College, as a member of the Visual Arts Faculty, Leah was responsible for implementing an innovative Artist in Residence Program that brought professional artists into the College community to work face-face with students. Leah also generated opportunities for inter-school collaborations that integrated creative arts and languages such as a Japanese/Visual Art project exploring the relationship between word, image and artistic process with St Mary of the Cross McKillop Primary School. Leah currently is involved with Visual Arts education program development and delivery at the National Gallery of Victoria.

This is the second time Leah has had the opportunity to judge the Principal’s Art Prize, having previously been involved in this capacity in 2010.
