SAOGA Past President Petagaye Givans presents Mrs Reid with the SAOGA 90th Anniversary Commemoration gift.

The ties that bind each of us to St. Andrew are varied and diverse. Wherever in the world there is an Andrews girl there are ways to get involved usually through an area association or chapter.

In Jamaica, the St. Andrew Old Girls’ Association (SAOGA) is an easy choice for getting involved.  SAOGA works hard and actively throughout the school year to assist current students and the school.
