NEXT MEETING AGM: Saturday 9 November 2019 9.30am @ Bev Philben Room, St Hilda’s School. All welcome.
The St Hilda’s Old Girls’ Association (OGA) exists to provide a recognised means of communication between past and present students and other school support groups; to promote social interaction between Old Girls; and to promote a permanent interest in the life, activities and progress of St Hilda’s School. We would like to introduce our new 2018 Committee below:
Miss Georgia Frizelle (2015)
After graduating from St Hilda’s in 2015 as the School Captain I am currently studying a double degree of Law and Commerce at Bond University. In between working at Pindara Private Hospital, studying full-time and enjoying the Gold Coast lifestyle, I love to travel, spend time with friends and family and read a good book in the sun. I have very much enjoyed being President of the St Hilda’s Old Girls’ Committee and am proud to continue building relationships between past and present students of St Hilda’s and a bigger and more connected Alumni network than ever before. With your support, we hope to make 2018 the most engaging and progressive year yet.
Mrs Christine Hughes (nee Johnson 1995)
I returned to the Gold Coast from Sydney four years ago with my husband Lachlan and three children. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, weekends on the family boat, camping, SUP boarding and horse riding. I’m delighted to be back at St Hilda’s as a parent and as OGA Vice President.
Mrs Christine Prendergast (1973)
I graduated from St Hilda’s School in 1973 and attended Gatton College to study Agriculture. I went overseas to live in Denmark for a year and worked in a plant nursery. I returned home to do my Masters in Biochemistry at Sydney University, followed by five years of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland. As a graduated vet, I bought my practice at Killarney. I married fellow vet John and moved to the Gold Coast where we now operate Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery. I’ve been a committee member for nine years. My daughter Lorraine graduated from St Hilda’s in 2014.
Miss Alexandra Elliot (2016)
Having graduated from St Hilda’s School as Head Boarder in 2016, my experiences well equipped me to embark on my journey into adulthood. Since then, I have moved to Brisbane and am currently studying a Bachelor of Communication at the University of Queensland. I’m passionate about St Hilda’s and education for women, and I’m excited to nurture this passion through my involvement in the OGA.
Miss Isla Stanich (2016)
After graduating from St Hilda’s School in 2016, I pursued my passion for writing and commenced a Bachelor of Journalism degree at the Queensland University of Technology. I strongly value the education of women, for I believe it is a powerful mechanism that equips girls with the knowledge, skills and confidence to progress through life and achieve their goals. As an aspiring media professional I am determined to bring about positive change in the world which is why, as a member of the St Hilda’s OGA Committee, I hope to help strengthen the relationships between past and present students in ways that will empower them to succeed in all areas of their lives.
Miss Rebecca Ramsey (2008)
Graduating in 2008 after Boarding at St Hilda’s School since 2002, Rebecca took some time off and enjoyed life before moving to Sydney in early 2011 where she secured a job as a receptionist at an Eastern suburbs Real Estate company. Here, Rebecca learnt all aspects of the business from the ground up, rising up in the company to become Senior Property Manager. Prior to leaving Sydney in 2015 and relocating to the Gold Coast, Rebecca had accomplished her goal to secure the highly-desired position of Senior Property Manager at an office in Circular Quay. Upon relocating to the Gold Coast, Rebecca ran the Property Management department for a boutique Real Estate company in Burleigh Heads before deciding to make her dream a reality and open her own Real Estate Property Management company in June 2017 called Ramsey Property Co.
Having a strong connection and continuous involvement with St Hilda’s since graduating and with her niece commencing at the school in Year 7 this year, it was with pride and joy that Rebecca joined the OGA Committee to help grow the Alumni and inspire future generations of the sisterhood that is the St. Hilda’s OGA.
