From the OGA President - OGA eNews Issue 1 2024

Welcome to the first edition of the OGA newsletter for 2024. It gives me great joy to be the President of the OGA for another year.

Welcome to the first edition of the OGA newsletter for 2024. It gives me great joy to be the President of the OGA for another year. I am looking forward to reconnecting with each one of you through our newsletter and events throughout the year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the OGA Committee for their commitment. We have already had our first meeting for the year, and plans are in place for another year of connecting, celebrating, and assisting further networks and learning for our group.

This year, the OGA will be sponsoring the Aspiring Young Women’s Network. The breakfast series provides an opportunity for St Margaret’s students, from Years 9-12, to hear firsthand from alumni who have recently transitioned to university or their chosen career. The aim of this initiative is to support current students with their postschool decisions, and who better to help with this than our esteemed group? If you would like to know more about this initiative and would like to assist, please contact the Development and Community Office.

Again, this year, we are proud to support the Past Student Awards. These awards represent our premier occasion to celebrate all the amazing women we have in our group. 2024 sees the introduction of a new award – The Spirit of Service Award and we congratulate Trudi Mitchell (’87) as the inaugural recipient. Congratulations to the recipients of the Distinguished Past Student Award - Dr Alex Markwell (’95) and Michelle May AM KC (’72), and to Caitlin McConnel (’07) as the recipient of the Young Past Student Award. I look forward to celebrating these remarkable women with you at the Past Student Awards Dinner on Thursday 21 March. I encourage you all to purchase your ticket for the evening to hear from these amazing women who have made outstanding contributions to our society.

Our shared history is a testament to the collective achievements, experiences, and friendships that have blossomed. I understand that life is busy and schedules can be demanding. However, I encourage you to take a moment to prioritise your connection with St Margaret’s. The 2024 calendar is filled with events that I hope serve as vibrant platforms for reconnecting with old friends and forging new connections.

I hope this newsletter allows you to keep updated with the latest developments within our diverse alumni community. In this issue, we learn about the acomplishments of our Past Student Award Winners and hear from the 2023 recipient of the Old Girls’ Prize, Hadassah Todd (’23), who has accepted an offer from Queensland University of Technology to study a Bachelor of Built Environment (Honours) (Urban and Regional Planning). Norma Tucker (’66) also shares how the Society of the Sacred Advent continues its transformational journey with the very significant milestone of embracing new members, which will help to ensure the long and remarkable journey and good works of the SSA continue.

Wishing you continued success and looking forward to the pleasure of your company at our upcoming events!
