As Elmslie's Old Girls Association celebrates the Centenary of Elmslie School, we are hosting a series of events over the weekend of May 18th - 20th 2018.

When planning started for the Centenary Weekend, it was decided to have four very different events because we hoped to appeal to as many Old Girls and Staff as possible.    
All events are ticketed and are on a strictly first come, first served basis.  Details for each event are listed below and we would like to extend our heartfelt invitation to all Elmslie Old Girls.  Please join us and help us celebrate our times together and remember our schooldays.

The Centenary Service, especially for Old Girls and former Members of Staff, will be a service of thanksgiving and a celebration of all that was good about Elmslie.  It will follow the religious tradition of the school, including much that is familiar to Elmslie pupils and staff, and will involve representatives from each era.  It will also reflect something of the school's history.
The retiring collection at the Church will be for The Children's Society and St Paul's Church. The service itself will be printed in a souvenir booklet.
Owing to the legal limit on the number that can be accommodated in St Paul's, places will be available on a first come, first served basis and entry will be by ticket only.
