Warm-hearted Community

Wednesday 6th September saw the launch of the ‘St Augustine’s Priory Association’ at St Augustine’s Priory, Ealing. In the school Hall packed with parents, pupils and staff the Interim Headteacher, Marie-Helene Collins, introduced this new initiative bringing together past and present pupils, parents and staff in one association, a coming together of the community that is St Augustine’s Priory.

An alumnae organisation has existed before but, as Mrs Collins said, ‘We are giving it new life and formalising it a little. For many of us here, perhaps current pupils and parents and more recent members of staff, it is new. This organisation will be inclusive of all members of the St Augustine’s Priory community. We are broadening our alumnae group to honour all relationships that come together in our very happy school. Parents matter to us because they have invested in us in so many ways and we miss them as well as their children when their daughters leave us. Staff and governors and trustees who have given their lives and talents also are recognised by this focus on relationships.

The Association’s objective it to create a supportive community to foster friendship and interaction between past pupils, parents, staff and all stakeholders of the School showing that the school is a wide-ranging and warm-hearted community.’
