Old Scholars' Association
The Old Scholars' Association provides a means for past students to maintain a link with their School and classmates. It gives them the opportunity to participate in many school events and members are a valuable source of guest speakers to the School and more recent graduates are invited to become tutors through the Study with Old Scholars Program.
The Association runs its own monthly meetings, social functions and supports the volunteers who organise 10 and 20 year reunions. The range of services offered by (and for) Old Scholars grows each year. The OSA Playgroup provides a chance for parents to catch up with other Old Scholars who also have young children. Regular fundraising events help to fund activities that build connections between current students and the Old Scholars, such as Career Days, the iRoar cybersafety initiative and more.
