Old Girls

Havergal Old Girls are a vibrant network of over 9,500 accomplished women located in more than 70 countries around the world.  Old Girls carry out our school’s mission of “making a difference”, first introduced by First Principal, Ellen Knox, who posed the question “what are you going to do?”.   Havergal Old Girls are the living answer to this inspiring question, shaping the cultural, political, economic and academic landscapes of Canada and beyond.
