Ravenswood’s Development and Alumni Office helps with reunions in Sydney, interstate or internationally. We help with Year Group lists, venue suggestions, organising a School Tour prior to milestone Reunions, an archival display at the Reunion (digital and/or print), setting up a TryBooking ticketing site, and designing and sending invitations.

Each year, milestone Reunions are held in August, September or October.  Some Year Groups also like to hold more informal Five Year Reunions, between the decades.  Milestone Reunions commence with a 60-minute School Tour followed by a glass of bubbles, and when possible, our Principal, Mrs Anne Johnstone will welcome alumni back to Ravenswood.  After the School Tour, alumni go on to attend their Reunion at a venue close-by or on campus.  In 2020, School Tours prior to Reunions will include the new Senior Learning Centre opening in Term 2, 2020.

The Annual Golden Girls' Luncheon is held in November for alumni who left Ravenswood 50 years' ago or more.  Immediately prior to the Golden Girls' Luncheon, we invite alumni who left 70 years' ago or more to an in-class experience with our Junior School girls.

If you would like to volunteer to start or join a Reunion Organising Committee, or if you can help to find "lost" alumni, please contact Sarah Beresford, Head of Development and Alumni on sberesford@ravenswood.nsw.edu.au or +61 2 9498 9953.
