The history of the St Augustine’s Association of Alumni and Friends
Development of the association began in 2012 with a simple question: How can we connect alumni, parents and the St Augustine’s community to help support St Augustine’s students?
During the 75th Anniversary celebrations the initiation of an ex-students’ bursary was established to support the transition to John Paul College.
How Can I get involved?
