Crofton House School Alumnae Association
There are almost 4000 Crofton House School alumnae living around the world. From Vancouver to New York, Victoria to the UK, Prince Rupert to Shanghai, our Alumnae are doctors, artists and entrepreneurs, they’re mothers and grandmothers, volunteers and CEO’s. CHS alumnae are confident, empowered women who can - and do - accomplish extraordinary things.
Crofton House alumnae form a strong network of women because of the close bonds they share with each other, with teachers and staff, and with the spaces and places at the School. These bonds have had a lasting effect on their character, their relationships, and their place in the world.

Soup Sisters – Serving Those in Need
On the evening of May 25th, a group of CHS alumnae met in Vancouver for a Soup Sisters session for the Alumnae Association’s wind-up party. Soup Sisters organizes soup-making events for small groups. In turn, that soup provides hundreds of litres of nourishing and nurturing goodness to women and children fleeing domestic abuse and family violence.
The event was held as a way to thank alumnae for volunteering and being involved with the Association over the past year. However, it also proved to be a powerful opportunity for our alumnae to give back to the greater community — and have some fun at the same time.
After learning some basic knife skills from the head chef, the soup-making began in earnest. During the course of the evening, the 17 alumnae who took part made more than 154 litres of soup for Maggie’s Place, a woman’s shelter in Vancouver. It was truly an amazing experience for all involved.
Given its huge success, another Soup Sisters event is being organized for the end of January 2017. Details will be sent out by email closer to the date. All alumnae are welcome!
