A New Approach for the Old Scholars’ Association

Posted on March 27, 2020

After a careful review by the Old Scholars’ Association, and in consultation with the School, a new approach for engagement with the Friends’ alumni community has been established.

The newly named Friends’ Alumni Community (FAC) has replaced the Old Scholars’ Association and has been broadened to encompass alumni and their families, former staff and volunteers, and friends of the School – wherever they are in the world.

Membership is automatic – there is no application or membership fee. If you wish to receive updates about the activities of this group please ensure your details are up to date

Alumni Community Representatives across geographic locations, cohort years and different parts of our community will work together to broaden and deepen connections amongst our community, foster and promote life-long connections, share stories, and advocate for the School and its Purpose and Concerns.

In partnership with the School, our commitment to a vibrant reunion and events program will continue. We will also share stories and celebrate the achievements of community members. 

In addition, we have an exciting list of focus areas for the next 12 months. We will be establishing a Mentoring Service that connects Young Alumni with established community members, establishing a Babysitting and Tutoring Register for Young Alumni looking to build skills and earn an income in the early years after graduation, building our online community to connect with alumni globally, and identifying, establishing and supporting Friends’ Alumni Community groups and clubs.

Alumni, past parents, former staff and friends of the School are invited to share their time and talents to help with:

  • Administration
  • Communications
  • Community Support and Outreach
  • Events and Awards
  • Membership & Data
  • Technology

Inaugural Representatives are:
