OSA encourages classes to take advantage of the schools’ Planned Reunion Weekends.
The advantages of these weekends are:

  • Heads of Colleges and Prep schools will attend
  • Facilities will be made available for reunion classes
  • Students are aware of the visiting classes
  • Visiting years can be included in school events

The Old Stithian Association is here to assist you with the following:

  • Contact class list for your year
  • Walkabout tours of the school
  • Information about chapel services and student assemblies
  • Should you wish to invite certain teachers to your reunion dinners or pre-drinks, please let us know so we can send you details

Your contact person is Caitlyn Loneon, the OSA Secretary alumni@stithian.com
