Welcome to the St Margaret’s College Old Girls’ Association.
We are a globally based network of former pupils of St Margaret’s College, Christchurch, New Zealand. We live and work in many diverse and stimulating environments, professions and areas of employment in Christchurch, Canterbury, throughout New Zealand and in many countries around the world.
Over recent years we have celebrated our Centenary in 2010 and the opening of our magnificent new school facilities after the devastating Christchurch earthquakes in 2010 and 2011.
We are deeply appreciative of all the Old Girls’ around the world who so very generously contributed to funding the naming rights for the Old Girls’ Atrium. Click here to view this wonderful space and Chapel complex.
We have come a long way since the Old Girls first met in 1913 with Sister Winifred, with the aim of “binding the past and present in unity and strength”. To date almost ten thousand girls have become members worldwide.
Today the focus of the Old Girls’ Association is to ensure that all members of the SMC community locally and globally are valued and feel a real connection to the past, present and future of the College. It is also important to us that relationships are created and nurtured.
