From the OGA President - OGA eNews Issue 2 2024

Each of us, whether as students, parents or educators, have been shaped by the experiences shared by us as we moved through our time at St Margaret’s.

Thursday 21 March saw the OGA host the Past Students Awards Dinner in conjunction with the School. At this event we gather each year not only to celebrate the award recipients but also to honour the enduring spirit of excellence that defines our Old Girl community.

Each of us, whether as students, parents or educators, have been shaped by the experiences shared by us as we moved through our time at St Margaret’s.

The Past Student Awards are not just about individual achievement; they are about our community. Each year these awards allow us time to reflect on the bonds forged through our shared challenges and experiences and the unwavering support of friends and family. The awards also allow us to celebrate the collective pride we feel as we witness the success of our Old Girl community and the knowledge that we are part of something greater than ourselves. The 2024 award recipient’s accomplishments not only reflected their own commitment but also served as a beacon of inspiration for future generations of students at St Margaret’s who will walk the in halls as we once did.

I extend my gratitude to St Margaret’s, for fostering an environment of learning, growth, and excellence that has shaped the lives of countless individuals, including those honoured with a Past Student Award.

Many Old Girls are driven towards careers in service to others, and in this edition of the OGA Newsletter, we talk to Maggie James (’97, nee Leung) and Cindy Pieterse (’76, nee Giddens) about their commitment to ensuring the best quality of life and care for their patients. We also hear from Jimena Kotsomitis (’01), who shares her journey from lawyer to Founder and Director of By Jimena Alejandra, Maggie Wu (’16) who recently spoke to St Magaret’s students on International Women's Day, along with some personal notes from Old Girls of many different alumni years in our Class Notes section.

I hope you enjoy this edition of the OGA News and look for ways that you can connect and share the stories you know that fill the history pages of St Margaret’s.
