The Former Pupils’ Club are delighted to announce that a new President has been appointed – Georgie Parker.
Georgie takes over from Lesley Robertson, class of 1974, who has led the Club through the challenges of the past few years. During that time Lesley and the Club supported the school’s events, online and socially distanced, and in-person when finally permitted. They also made a donation to the school’s hardship fund to support families experiencing difficulty during the pandemic.
At the AGM in January, Georgie was nominated and confirmed as the new Club President. Georgie has a long-standing connection to St Margaret’s having joined the school in1974, and was promoted to Head of the PE Department in1977. Georgie was in post until her retirement in 2010. In the following years she worked as a supply teacher and is still part of the schools invigilation team. The school are thrilled that Georgie has taken on the role of President and that the Club will continue to support the school as part of our wider school community.
Some former pupils and staff may remember the school's 150th anniversary celebrations, during which Mrs Parker led an exercise class where junior pupils were dressed in Victorian costumes as part of a school project:
The Former Pupils’ Club will be supporting the Annual School Reunion on Saturday 29th April which is a great opportunity for former pupils, staff and friends of the school to visit. Please do come along and show Georgie and Club your support and catch up on news from the school – find out more here.
Beyond the FP Club, Georgie is also a member of our Spring Ball Committee, organising a fantastic Spring Ball at the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa on the evening on the 29th April. This event will raise much needed funds to support our means-tested Bursary Programme. We will also be making a donation to local charity Charlie House who provide support for children and young people living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. We invite all members of our school community – former pupils and staff, current families, and friends of the school – to come to the Ball for an enjoyable evening and help contribute towards the independent education of girls at St Margaret’s.
