McKinnon is expanding its alumni program to build and mobilise the school’s alumni community, with the help of Ourschool.


Ourschool is a not-for profit service that helps public high schools build a thriving alumni network to benefit current students and the school community.

Alumni programs in private schools and universities are well established and provide huge benefits to students. Our alumni program will help us grow our alumni community to benefit our students.


The alumni program will focus on doing these key things:

  • Find and connect with alumni;
  • Invite alumni back to school to inspire students about study and career pathways;
  • Create opportunities for students via alumni providing work experience placements;
  • Invite alumni to provide philanthropic support for students and our school by contributing to school fund-raising projects and student scholarships.


If you’re reading this and you’re a former student of McKinnon SC we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with us by sending an email to:

Alumni Program Coordinator and Thistlelonian Administrator
