PPSA Carol Singing and Cheese and Wine Evening.

An enjoyable evening was spent in the Chapel when past pupils from various eras joined together to sing carols. The PPSA Christmas tree was on display and a wonderful spread of cheeses and wines ended a jolly evening. “What a good way to begin Christmas” said one attendee, “The first carols of Christmas” added another.

PPSA Reunion Picnic

The OLCS Past Pupils and Staff Association enjoyed their Reunion Picnic in the Summer term. Alumni made the most of being back at school, taking tours of the Convent building and catching up with Staff members. The afternoon was a great success and the PPSA look forward to hosting further events.

We hope that we can inform you of events, great and small, that may be of interest to former Convent pupils; therefore we invite you to enrol and enjoy getting in touch with the friends with whom you have lost touch.
