A supportive Old Girls’ Association and many dedicated and involved parents ensure that Maris Stella is a truly dynamic, vibrant school family. The association was founded in 1925. Mother Annunciation loved and revered by all was leaving for Ireland on a well deserved holiday. Sister Ambrose suggested to Miss Brigit Eckhoff, who was then a teacher, that some of the ‘Old Girls’ get together to say ‘goodbye’ to sister. Forty two Old Girls met at Maris Stella on 6 April 1925 to wish Sister well on her trip to Ireland. The reunion was a great success and from it derived the idea of forming an Old Girls’ Association. The main object of the Association would be to foster loyalty to the Old School, to keep in mind the ideals and to encourage fellowship and mutual understanding among its members. Miss Gwen Perhouse was elected the first Head, and our current Old Girls Society Head, Divania Naidoo, matriculated in 2003.
We encourage all Old Girls to join our Maris Stella Facebook Page, I heart Maris Stella, to keep in touch with the school activities and details of reunions. We also urge all our Old Girls to please update their details regularly in the below form, if you would like to receive our newsletters and reunion details.
We would love your help to shine our light even further! Please let us know if you would like to be more involved in school life in any way. There are so many ways in which you can make a difference, and help our current Maris Stella girls to benefit from your generosity. Some ideas include promoting your business to our Grade 11s and 12s on Career Day, being a guest speaker, mentoring a matric, supporting our Golf Day, or advertising in our school magazine. We also have an Old Girls Bursary Fund, which is used to financially assist girls who would otherwise not be able to attend our beautiful school. Please let us know if you can help in any way.
