Special events for our community
In addition to Homecoming & Founder's Day, The Study Old Girls' Association (SOGA) participates in or hosts the following annual events:
In the spring, Old Girls are invited to return for the annual Speed Mentoring event. Our Grade 10 and 11 students benefit from the 'speed' mentorship of our talented Old Girls.
SOGA Lunch for the graduates
This special event serves as the official welcoming of the graduating class to SOGA at which time the students receive their SOGA pins and Comfort Blanket. One of the rare events where tissue is a basic necessity, this very special luncheon also brings together the graduating class with their Mothers to celebrate the completion of their Study journey. It is during this luncheon that the Time Capsule is filled and sealed until the graduating class returns to celebrate their 10th and 25th reunions.
SOGA High Tea
This new event was created in October 2013 to welcome back Old Girls and former faculty/staff on Founder's Day and precedes the whole-school assembly.
While Class Reunions are held during Homecoming/Founder's Day in the fall of each year, SOGA is also available to support Class Reunions that may take place outside of the school. If you would like to host an Old Girls' reunion in your city, please contact Pattie Edwards, Director of Alumnae Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org or 514.935.9352 x229.

Young Alum Sports & Pub Night
This initiative brings back recent graduates for an evening of sport (House dodgeball, basketball, etc) followed by an informal get-together 'pub-style'.
SOGA Speaker Series
This initiative brings Old Girls back to the school to speak with our current students on a variety of topics, ranging from CEGEP and University advice to career or hobby advice. There are usually two SOGA Speaker Series events, one in the fall and one in the spring.
Mom & Tots Playdate
This event welcomes all SOGA mothers with their young children (under 5 years) for a fun get-together!
There are many events that take place every school year when Study Old Girls can volunteer to support the learning of current Study students. For example, Old Girls with backgrounds in the sciences or mathematics may wish to volunteer as judges for The Study's annual Science & Math Fairs. Old Girls who are passionate about the dramatic arts or athletics, may help co-direct student plays or coach co-curricular sports teams.
