to keep up to date with the latest news from the Old Scholars' Association.
St Peter’s Girls’ graduates can be found all over the globe, yet they remain connected to the School where their friendships formed and their sense of knowledge, self and future took shape.
The Old Scholars’ Association is an essential link between the history of St Peter’s Girls and the present School community. It commenced in 1914, making it one of the oldest associations of its kind in Australia. The OSA provides an annual Scholarship which is awarded to an external student entering our School in Years 5 – 8 who has proven all-round ability and a connection to Saints Girls through a family member having attended the School in the past.
The affairs of the Association are managed through a Council of approximately 20 members who meet monthly on a Tuesday evening. Council members represent a vast number of alumni. The AGM is held in March, with all members of the OSA welcome to attend. We encourage anyone interested in joining the committee to nominate at this time. To become a Council member, one must be an Old Scholar.
The Council is supported by the Community Relations Office which manages the day-to-day requirements of the OSA.
Many Old Scholars return to Saints Girls to talk with current students, sharing their professional experiences across a host of careers. They also volunteer through our Old Scholars' Tutor Program, sharing their knowledge and providing guidance to current students as they navigate their studies.
The OSA has been responsible for the establishment of the School Museum and continues to give voluntary support to its development.
Reunions and Events
The Old Scholars’ Association hosts an Annual Reunion Dinner in June which celebrates Old Scholars who attended Saints Girls 60, 50, 40, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10 or 5 years ago. The OSA provides many other opportunities to reconnect in Adelaide including “A Touch of Blue” cocktail evening for our younger Old Scholars, movie events.
Interstate reunions include annual events in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth.
