We are pleased to invite you to our Annual Old Augustinians lunch which this year will take place on Sunday, 1st October 2023 at the former St. Augustine's College and Abbey School (and former Les Oiseaux Convent School), 125 Canterbury Road, Westgate on Sea, Kent. CT8 8NL the home of our school from September 1971 to July 1995.

This year we will be joined by members of the Westgate Ursuline Alumni Association which represents all those former Ursuline students and staff as this year sees the beginning of their 120th year since the school was set up in Westgate. We shall also be joined by Sister Alice Montgomery, who became the first Headmistress of the Ursuline College as it became known in 1995 when the Ursuline Sisters kindly opened their school to take boys from St. Augustine's College and Abbey School, when the school closed. Sister Alice will be our Main Speaker.

We will again be joined by the Alumnae of Les Oiseaux Convent School, who occupied our school buildings pre-1971. The lunch is of course open to all Old Augustinians, Staff, friends and family.

This lunch event is normally held on a Saturday and should have taken place on Saturday, 30th September but due to an administrative error by the venue, there had been a double booking, we have had to settle for a Sunday this year. Consequently Mass will not take place prior to lunch, as priests, quite understandably, will be busy in their parishes.

The itinerary for this Celebration is as follows:

  • 12 noon onwards The bar will be open for those wanting to buy pre-lunch drink or tea/coffee.
  • 1:00pm Three course Sunday lunch (with vegetarian options) with wine or soft drinks, coffee & mints.
  • 2:45pm Speeches including Guest Speaker, Sister Alice Montgomery, former Ursuline College Headteacher.

I do hope you will be able to attend this year and please encourage others who were in your class, friends and family to come to this event.

We have reduced the ticket price this year to £40 per person and an online Booking form and Menu choices form is available on our website link:

We must confirm and order the lunches in advance, I would be grateful if you could complete your booking form with menu choices and payment by Saturday 23rd September at the very latest.

There is plenty of parking at the venue and for those travelling by Rail, there are currently no planned engineering works from London or in the area that day. A map of the location is on our website link: below:


We look forward to seeing you - hope you will be able to attend.
