Old Scholars

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 a Year 7 or 8 student entering our School 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.
