Past pupils gathered at the annual assembly event which celebrates the school’s rich history. Esteemed guests included past principals, Mrs Mary van Blerk, Dr. Elizabeth Fullard and Ms. Laura Bekker, who played pivotal roles in shaping the school’s legacy. Recognition was also extended to past staff members, Ms. Biddy Ryan and Ms. Pat Hanger, whose dedication left a lasting impact on the school community.

The gathering was made even more special with the presence of the following alumnae groups that gathered to reminisce.
