Launched in Oct 2010, the PSSG Alumni aims to provide a platform for parents whose daughters have graduated from PL to maintain close link with the school and each other.

The PSSG Alumni do this by:
1. Serving as parent-volunteers in various ways as and when needed
2. Sharing as friends/mentors experiences and resources with parents whose daughters are leaving or have left PL for post-secondary education.
