2018 SCOGA Biennial Lunch

On Thursday, 8 March 2018, the St Catherine’s Old Girls’ Association (SCOGA) hosted our Biennial Lunch at Crown Melbourne. More than 170 Old Girls, Honorary Old Girls, School staff and members of the School community attended this highly anticipated event.

On this day, International Women’s Day, we celebrated women from nearly every year group, nominated by their peers, by sharing their stories of achievement, spirit, and determination. We honoured the lives of these remarkable women, and we celebrated us all as Old Girls.

Chrissy Ryan (Graham ’79)
