Old Girl Search.....

Facebook, Friends Reunited and Yahoo all provide excellent facilities for searching for friends and relatives who haven’t been heard of or seen for years. However, we thought we would offer an additional opportunity for St Elphin’s girls to search for their old school friends.

Therefore, if you would like to try and track down an old school friend from St Elphin’s please email the details to Liz (lizbailey@stelphins.co.uk) and put “Friend Search” in the subject line. We will put the information on this page and if anyone gets in touch we will put them in touch with you. Likewise if you see your name listed below, or you know the whereabouts of anyone listed, then please get in touch with Liz.
