Mrs Leeanne Moriarty (nee Dreosti, Kennion ’81)

Leanne-Moriarty-180x180“I spent four enjoyable years at St Peter’s Girls’ School. I have always wanted to have an involvement with the School, but when I ended up having sons, and not daughters, I realised I would not be able to contribute as a parent. I was delighted when I learned about leaving a bequest.

“The great thing about a bequest is that you do not have to feel pressured to donate money at a time in your life when you have commitments such as school fees, superannuation contributions and mortgages.

“My bequest is a way of assisting with the development of St Peter’s Girls, but it is also a chance for me to acknowledge the good memories I have of when I was a girl at Saints.”

Dr Christopher Dibden, past parent

IMG_5398-e1380779312994-180x180“My daughter, Eloise, has received a World-class education thanks to the foresight and generosity of a previous generation of benefactors. To ensure present and future generations of girls have access to the wonderful opportunities our daughters have enjoyed at St Peter’s Girls, it is incumbent upon all of us, the current benefactors, to provide the means for this to happen. Direct giving to the Foundation is necessary and helpful to see current projects through to completion but so, too, are bequests, for it is through such forward-thinking generosity that the long-term future of Saints Girls is assured.

“It is for these reasons that I have provided a significant bequest to St Peter’s Girls’ School in my Will. I have done exactly the same for my son’s all-boys school and I have felt much satisfaction in doing so. I strongly recommend to all members of the School Community that they, too, consider being rewarded in this way.”

Dr Lena McEwan (Kennion ’43) 1927 – 2011

Lena McEwan attended St Peter’s Girls from 1936 – 1943. She was a brilliant student and graduated from the University of Adelaide.

Lena was the first woman doctor to specialise in plastic surgery in Australia and her highly distinguished and respected medical career saw her hold a number of honorary appointments both nationally and overseas. In 1967 she became president of the Victorian Medical Women’s Society.

She is remembered for her high surgical competence, being a good teacher, her compassion and as an extremely generous benefactor to education.

Mr Tony Aykroyd, past parent

TonyAykroyd-180x180“The Aykroyd family has been associated with St Peter’s Girls since 1998 when we enrolled our daughter, Charlie, into Reception. Charlie was Head Prefect of the Class of 2010. We were motivated to leave a bequest because Saints has, and continues to have, a profound impact on all our lives.

Saints Girls thrives only through the generosity of past, present and future donors. We hope our bequest can be part of that legacy of giving. We are pleased and proud to have been associated with such a wonderful School and community. Making a bequest is one way we can give back to the School and help ensure that Saints can continue to provide the facilities necessary to educate future generations of girls.”

Elizabeth Shillabeer (nee Morrow, Patteson ’67)

E-Shillabeer-180x180“I have decided to make a bequest to the School for several reasons. Firstly,I feel a link with Stonyfell as I began at Saints just as it had moved campuses, in 1957, and I was there until 1967. I felt that I was part of a family when I was at Saints. Although I was hopeless at sport and the sciences, I was encouraged to develop my strengths whatever they were!

“I generally loved learning and that was done in an encouraging and challenging atmosphere. I feel that I want others to experience the love of learning and the sense of family that I did. Because I love this School, I want to do what I can to help it continue to be the special place that it is.”
