Back to school


About 25 Southland Girls’ High School (SGHS) Old Girls’ Association members gathered at the school last week to visit the memorial plaque area and the school library.

SGHS Old Girls’ president Anne McCracken said the newest memorial plaques, located in the indoor quadrangle, included one to honour past pupil and educator Merle O’Donnell as well as a plaque in recognition of the Old Girls’ Association.

Mrs O’Donnell had been a teacher and principal as well as the association’s patron in her latter years, Mrs McCracken said.

The members also visited the school library and had a morning tea.
