Celebrating Alumnae

We are incredibly proud of the diverse accomplishments of our alumnae community.

Emily Hensley Awards

Nominations for the Emily Hensley Award 2020 WILL OPEN soon.

The Emily Hensley Award is designed to honour our young alumnae, and celebrate the outstanding achievements so many of our OGs accomplish so soon after graduating.

The Award, aptly named, Emily Hensley Award, after founding principal Emily Hensley, honours notable young alumnae who:

  • Continue to embody the school values; courage, compassion, integrity and self-discipline
  • Have experienced significant success in their chosen field of endeavour; and/or
  • Have made a meaningful contribution to society through community engagement

How can you get involved? During the nomination period, identify a great colleague, friend or family member who has graduated from MGGS, (this is the easy part, there are so many amongst us), and download our award Guidelines and the Nomination Form to get started. Any member of the Melbourne Girls Grammar community including, staff, Old Grammarians, current families, past families, community partners and friends of MGGS may nominate a young Old Grammarian for an award. Old Grammarians may also self-nominate.

Nominations are encouraged from all young Old Grammarians that meet the eligibility and selection criteria, regardless of field of study, current role, industry, or location.

The Emily Hensley Award recipient is announced to the community in November and is officially presented to the awardee at Celebration Day the following year. The recipient is also invited to the International Women’s Day Breakfast as guest speaker.
