HISTORY OF ST. HUGH'S PAST STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION, SINCE 1933


The St. Hugh’s Past Students’ Association (SHPSA), formerly called the “St. Hugh’s Old Girls' Association”, was formed in 1933 with eight members. Its first president was the School’s principal, Miss Hermione Wilhelmina Joels, and for several years afterwards, the School’s principal served as its president. The first past student to serve as president was Iris (Sorror) Jones in the early 1940s.

By 1938/39, the Association had 70 members. Its purpose was twofold: to foster a spirit of camaraderie and “togetherness” among past students and to help raise funds in support of the School. In an effort to achieve the first objective, the Association held its first annual reunion dinner on 28 January 1939 at the South Camp Road Hotel with Bishop Hardie as the guest of honour.

To achieve the second objective, a dance was held at Springfield on 15 April 1939. This dance was said to be a success and a second dance was planned for November of that same year. The Association’s second dinner was held on 27 January 1940, again at the South Camp Road Hotel, with the Colonial Secretary Mr Grantham as the guest of honour.

Since those early days, the Association has expanded its objectives to meet the needs of a larger membership and a much larger student body at the School. The objectives of the Association are: 

  1. To foster the interest of past students in the School and to promote a feeling of unity among its past and present girls.  
  2. To keep a permanent record of all past students with their present addresses and outstanding achievements.  
  3. To play its part in the community and help those less fortunate than themselves by displaying civic responsibility.  
  4. And generally, to promote the social, athletic and intellectual welfare of its members and the School in such manner as may from time to time appear expedient.
