Your Old Girls' Association
St. Mary's Convent has always enjoyed a fine sense of tradition, and true to that tradition has a flourishing Old Girls' Association. We can boast that within the membership of over 600, is the very first pupil of the school when it opened its doors in 1934. We span a great number of years, and our membership is represented by pupils of each era, so that at the reunions no one feels left out - there is always someone that they know.
Whilst keeping members in touch through our Newsletter and Reunions, we like to give something back to the school which has played such an important role in our lives by making a donation in kind to a current school project. We have recently replaced the statue in the gardens. We also recognise service and commitment to the school in the awarding of 'The Old Girls' Shield' each year at Prize Giving.
We also are actively involved in school activities, in recent years we have sponsored the Ice Cream Parlour at the summer fete and can be found serving ice creams to pupils past and present. We have also attended school productions such as 2013's Wizard of Oz and other events such as the Christmas market.
This year, as part of the 80th anniversary, we are hoping to support in a school project to transform the Italian garden into an anniversary garden. More information will be shared as agreed.
If you are interested in supporting in OGA activities then please do contact us and see how you can become involved.
We look forward to welcoming more of you in 2014.
