Old Girls Association news

Back to Latest News

The spring meeting for the St Martin's Old Girls Association took place on Saturday 18 May 2019. There were over 40 Old Girls, some of whom were visiting for the first time since leaving the school. It is always good to meet and talk to the past students. It was interesting to talk to Tracey, who is now a primary school teacher, and to Sharon who lives and works in Texas. They regularly attend the spring meeting, which they say is an opportunity for them to catch up!. They are, and will be "forever friends", both having attended the same primary school and then the same secondary school, St Martin's, from 1978 to 1983.   

Current students led tours, after which the Headteacher, Beverley Stanislaus, gave a short presentation and then everyone sat down to a delicious  lunch prepared by our very own Harrison Caterers!  The Old Girls Association AGM took place after lunch with the key note speech made by an Old Girl, Sheere Dodd, a communications and training consultant. She has an extensive background in her field and was a former Director of Communications at the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Deputy Director at DWP and Head of News at the Northern Ireland Office (NIO).  Sheere offers a powerful combination of experience in leading complex communications activity and national media practice from many years as a senior political journalist. We look forward to welcoming her into school to talk to our students in the new academic year. 

Thank you to the Old Girls who lead and plan all the events that take place during the year, keeping the Old Girls in touch with each other and contributing to the uniform fund and the school prizes. They keep the saying alive... 'Once a St Martin's Girl, Always a St Martin's Girl'!  We look forward to seeing you again in October.
