On a great day, September 16, 1959, St. Paul’s School for Girls opened with a student body of eighty-six and a faculty and staff of 14. The years immediately preceding were filled with excitement and a bit of anxiety as a small group of volunteers and philanthropists imagined, financed, and brought a new school to reality.
Founding Headmistress Ros Levering believed that there was a great need for a school where the emphasis is on “the fullest possible development of personality, a school small enough and flexible enough to help each child individually to develop maturity in judgment, discrimination and perceptiveness, and to have a high standard of values.” Many agreed with her, and SPSG has grown, thrived, and flourished since then, sustained by voluntary contributions of time and financial support.
As always, contributions from current and former parents, alumnae, grandparents, current and former trustees, faculty, and friends are being sought and continue to provide invaluable opportunities for the school’s students, faculty and staff. There are innumerable ways to support the school and its philanthropic priorities. Your support of the Annual Fund, the endowment, and designated areas will be welcome and appreciated.
