Advancement, Alumni and Sustainability

The institutional advancement of St Stithians relies on creating a community of belonging through positive relationships and encouraging a culture that encourages contributions which develop the College and the roles that it plays as a leading South African school. The College seeks to create a community of belonging among students, staff and parents, both in the present and through strong links with our alumni and past parents.


The mission of the Advancement Office is to enhance the brand of St Stithians, to invest in a community of belonging, and to ensure a co-ordinated approach to admissions, marketing, events, communication, fundraising, alumni relations and the archive. The Advancement Office works in association with each of the schools, our alumni and the Old Stithian Association. 

St Stithians College seeks to foster a positive relationship with our alumni and to work closely with the Old Stithian Association. The community of Old Stithians is a vital component of the St Stithians family, linking the present with the past and the future.

Critical to the future and long-term sustainability is the St Stithians Sustainability Committee. Led by governors and supported by the Advancement Office, the Sustainability Committee supports strategic projects and priorities of the College.
