Past Students

The All Saints Past Students Association

The Association is dedicated to the following:

• The promotion of all that relates to the welfare of All Saints Anglican School
• The promotion, unity and friendship among former students of all Saints Anglican School
• The maintenance of interest of the former students in All Saints Anglican School.

Membership

Often All Saints Anglican School graduates join the Past Students Association when they graduate from Year 12. This decision gives these members the opportunity to stay connected to the All Saints Anglican School community keeping members up-to-date with news, School reunions and other events. However, some members decide to join the Association once they have begun their working life. If you are unsure of your membership status, would like to join as a life member of our Association or wish to update your email and postal details, please do not hesitate to contact our School representative, Mrs Maria Egan, on the following:

What does the Association do?

Regular Support to the All Saints Community

Facebook
The Association maintains a Facebook page where students can find current information pertaining to the Association and the School. Find us at www.facebook.com/AllSaintsAnglicanSchoolPSA.

The Saints Magazine
The Past Students Association is pleased to be able to contribute to the costs of producing the popular biannual school magazine, The Saints. This magazine keeps all current families and Past Student Association members up to date with the latest news. A copy of the magazine is mailed out to all PSA lifetime members. To update your address details, please contact us via saints@asas.qld.edu.au.

Careers Dinner
A recent innovation at All Saints has been the Year 12 Careers Dinner. This night enables Year 12 students to spend the evening talking to and networking with professionals in their desired field of work. Past students, friends of All Saints and local professionals kindly give up their time to share their knowledge with the students. The Past Students Association has been committed to aiding the Year 12 graduates in their life journey and to this end is a major sponsor of this evening.

Student Sponsorship
The Past Students Association is also committed to ensuring that current families who may need some assistance to ensure a quality education for their children are supported. To this end, the Association provides some fee relief to some worthy students in the All Saints community.

Reunions
Each year 5,10 and 20 year reunions are organised by volunteers from each cohort. The PSA is available for any help required such as distribution of invitations, school tours and teacher attendance (if this is something the group would like). The PSA also makes a donation of $200 for 5 year reunions and $500 for 10 and 20 year reunions to fund a portion of the event (e.g. venue hire, catering). If you are organising a reunion for your cohort, please contact Mrs Maria Egan at megan@asas.qld.edu.au for further details.

It is also important all members keep their details current to ensure they receive such invitations and other important information. Please email saints@asas.qld.edu.au to update your email and postal address.

Helping at the All Saints Fair
Every second year, the All Saints Fair hits the Gold Coast! The Past Student Association is involved in helping at the Fair. All Past Students are welcome to attend this biennial event. The next Fair will take place in 2022.

Major Projects

The PSA Wonder Space (2015)
The School has created a cutting edge physical and technological facility comprised of two zones with the purpose of cultivating creativity, promoting intellectual contemplation and allowing for personal reflection. The Past Students Association made a significant donation to this facility to ensure that outstanding resources are available for all students from Pre Prep to Year 12. In grateful recognition of this donation, the facility was named the PSA Wonder Space.

The All Saints Chapel (2012)
It was with great pride that the Past Students Association donated the funds to provide the All Saints Chapel (completed at the beginning of 2012) with its magnificent stained glass windows.

The Holloway Music Centre (2010)
The Past Students Association made a significant financial donation to the Holloway Music Centre which provides state of the art facilities to all students of music at All Saints. The School has kindly named the performance room in the Centre after the Association in grateful thanks for this donation.

Tanzanian Appeal (2009)
During 2009, Oliver Lintott (Class of 2008) worked as a volunteer in Tanzania reaching out to over 3000 AIDS orphans who desperately needed clothes, educational materials and basic living supplies. Oliver wanted to help in a more concrete way and decided he would mount a drive to gather items that would make a difference in the lives of these children. Operation Oliver was launched in May 2009 and in only four weeks enough clothes, shoes, bikes, educational materials, sporting goods and furniture to fill a container was collected. However, a container to Tanzania is expensive and Oliver suddenly was faced with the possibility of true disappointment should the funds to send the container not be raised. Having been made aware of his plight, the Past Students Association stepped in with a significant contribution toward the shipping cost. Oliver's container was sent and the goods are now being used to help bring a little joy to 3000 children in Tanzania.

Gymnasium (2001)
A major investment of the Past Students Association has been the establishment of the Past Students Gym and Weights Room housed in the Health & Physical Education Centre. Students, staff and parents have all enjoyed getting fit in this very professional gym.

Stained Glass Window (1999)
The Past Students Association donated the funds to establish the beautiful stained glass window that was housed in the previous Chapel area of the School. While this Chapel has now been decommissioned, the window remains in its current location in this building and is now enjoyed by Senior School students in the Art Library.
