Future Proof

At Melbourne Girls Grammar, our girls are challenged to explore different ways of thinking, preparing them to navigate the unknowns of the future. We are delighted to share the inspiring stories of 6 exceptional Old Grammarians (OGs), who are thriving in the world beyond our red brick walls.

Our OGs echo the sentiment that an education at MGGS has left them with not only a powerful network of lifelong friends, but also enduring themes of collaboration, social justice and empowerment.

Frankie Cox has had a passion for cooking her entire life. She was hand-picked to be the Executive Chef in one of New York’s most popular restaurants, Two Hands, and has been making waves in the international culinary scene ever since. Graduating from Melbourne Girls Grammar in 2008, Frankie fondly remembers the culture of mutual trust and respect between the students and teachers, and the encouragement to be an individual and forge her own path.
