Old Grammarians Society

Attending Melbourne Girls Grammar is the beginning of a lifelong connection to the School and its community.

The Old Grammarians Society was founded in 1904 and today, our alumnae – our Old Grammarians or OGs – can be found in all corners of the world.

The OGs work towards strengthening the connections of the alumnae.  Here to support and encourage, the OGs’ participation is a pathway to continued involvement in our School and a celebration of its future.

If you are an Old Grammarian we invite you to join MGGS Connect to hear about the many opportunities for OGs to stay connected to the School and take part in our social calendar.

Message from the President

For more than 120 years, Melbourne Girls Grammar has educated strong, resilient and talented girls who embody our School’s values.

We are a community brimming with ideas and enthusiasm for our School and its future.

It is an absolute pleasure to serve as President of the Old Grammarians Society and share with you the many programs, events and services that sustain and support the lifelong association between every Old Grammarian and the Melbourne Girls Grammar community.

We’re delighted to be able to share what some of our Old Grammarians have achieved in their life beyond school here.

From the Information Exchange magazine, the MGGS Connect platform and through social media, it has never been easier to stay in touch with the School and build connections with fellow OGs.

As we evolve as a school, it is important to remember the common thread and unwavering network of support we have behind us at MGGS.
