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.

President of the Old Grammarians Society

Melbourne Girls Grammar would like to thank Judy Wilkinson (Rutty, 1965) for her seven years of service and commitment as the President of the Old Grammarians Society. Judy’s warmth was a lovely feature of her leadership style, and the Old Grammarians society and the Melbourne Girls Grammar community benefited from her inclusive approach. 

Trudie Horsfall (1976) is the new Old Grammarians Society President, and we welcome her to this role. 

Young Old Grammarians

Launched in 2012, the Young Old Grammarians (YOGs) is designed to generate ideas and interest through younger OGs.

Young OGs can look forward to a range of social events as well as networking and mentoring opportunities.

If you have any questions or if you are interested in getting involved, contact community@mggs.vic.edu.au or keep connected via the Young Old Grammarians on Facebook.

We have a number of events scheduled throughout the year for our Old Grammarians.

Every year reunions are held to celebrate the 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th anniversaries of your graduating year. In addition, the Old Grammarians Society, in collaboration with the School, host regular events at which old girls can catch up with old friends, build relationships with new, and hear from special guest speakers from across the globe.
