Message from Shelley Frayne

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our online Alumnae portal, SCS Connect. I am delighted at news of Union members being in close contact with each other wherever they find themselves in the world and hope that our online platform will encourage more members to join the SCS Union and strengthen ties with our current school community. It is a delight to help re-connect old friends for milestone events and share St Cyprian’s School’s progress with past girls in blue.

Our purpose is to continue to foster a spirit of loyalty and to promote the general welfare of St Cyprian’s School and this is extended to all those who came before. We encourage support for our current community of girls’ goals and wish to strengthen our support of our alumnae and their endeavours.

We have a unique and cherished pioneering heritage as a girls’ school, not least for the myriad achievements of our alumnae(i). Your accomplishments and contributions continue to provide inspiration for those who follow.

On behalf of all the girls and staff at St Cyprian’s School, we bid you welcome and wish you well.

Shelley Frayne Principal

“Not for school but for life” is the Union’s mission statement, taken from that of the All Saints Sisters who first ran St Cyprian’s School.

Dear Union members

In September 2017, I assumed the privilege of becoming the St Cyprian’s Union Chair for the next few years. It is particularly exciting to serve the Union when St Cyprian’s School is actively working to increase our connections to each other and school across the globe through initiating SCS Connect.

The Union’s objectives are: to promote fellowship amongst St Cyprian’s alumnae through maintaining a worldwide network of members as an integral pillar of the School, to maintain a close-knit relationship with the school family, to help to uphold the traditions and values of the school, and to grow and administer a fund to provide bursaries for qualifying students who need financial aid; this to be achieved without any personal gain to its members. Sign up to our new portal to keep up to date with our events and initiatives and to participate in our wonderful Union community.

I’m excited about what the next few years hold for us and what we can achieve as alumnae as we strengthen our relationships and network and fortify our ties with our wonderful school.

Warm regards

Cebisa Mfenyana Union Chairperson
