Alumni Association

"All around the world you'll find them" is the first line of our School Song and it is certainly true. Alumni from Pittwater House can be found throughout the world working in a broad and exciting range of careers.

Hello, my name is Anthony Buckton and I am the 3rd President of the Pittwater House Alumni Association which was formed in 2011 - the school’s 50th Anniversary year. I was part of the graduating class of 1985 and I now have 3 children currently at Pittwater House.

The PHAA is a growing association that includes past students, teachers and friends of Pittwater House. In true Pittwater House spirit, it’s inclusive and designed to foster an ongoing Pittwater House community way beyond school.

We are also very proud to offer the School a continuing source of support, with offers of mentoring and work experience as well as funding for special projects that help our soon-to-be alumni. Our family continues to grow with the support of the School and the School continues to grow with the support of the Alumni.

I warmly invite you to connect with PHAA. Become a life member. Join our Facebook and Linked-In groups. Share your stories and expertise. Give back a little and gain so much.

Best wishes

Anthony Buckton (1985) PHAA President
