Learn about the ways you can keep in touch with your peers, and also us at Melbourne Girls Grammar.
Ways to keep in touch
Being a member of our community does not stop when you graduate. Instead, you become an Old Grammarian and a life member of the Old Grammarians Society (OGS).
We want you to stay connected and welcome you to our various events throughout the year, where you can network, meet and learn with peers. The OGS and the School also hosts several reunion occasions every year, so we encourage you to keep your eyes out for all invitations – it’s a wonderful way to stay connected.
Living interstate or overseas or not able to attend many events? There are multiple other ways in which you can stay connected – take a look at our suggestions below.
We have a number of events scheduled throughout the year for our Old Grammarians.
Each year reunions are held to celebrate the 5th, 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th anniversaries of your graduating year.
The below events list is not exhaustive, and often does not include interstate or international occasions. Visit MGGS Connect to find Branch specific events or to view images from previous OG events.
Any questions related to events can be directed to email@example.com.

Merton Memorial Weekend – New to 2019
For the first time, we’re inviting all MGGS alumnae to join us at the Merton Hall Campus for a celebration weekend. Taking place over 22 and 23 March 2019, the Merton Memorial Weekend will offer a range of events including campus tours, social and professional development events, sporting activities, performances and other opportunities to reconnect for all Old Grammarians.
The program for the Merton Memorial Weekend is currently being finalised and further information will be shared in November 2018, in the meantime, please Save the Date.
To take full advantage of access to the campus and other activities taking place, the individual class reunion events will be held on the same weekend.
If you’re interested in helping plan a reunion (or the broader Merton Weekend events), please contact the Alumnae team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional ways you can stay connected with the School outside of events can be found below.
All graduates of MGGS have access to our private online alumnae networking platform, MGGS Connect. MGGS Connect allows you to build your network and seek out mentors, provides regular community news, and promotes the latest OG events. We encourage all OGs to join to reconnect with hundreds of other OGs today.
MGGS Connect has proven to be a great platform for me to reconnect with people I went to school with. I can also see what others in the community are up to and can search for mentors working in my industry. It’s great!

MGGS and the OGS are uplifted by the interest shown by our OG community in mentoring.
Our OG Mentoring Program is designed to build connections between current students and alumnae to further educate and enhance career pathways. The Program will match experienced professionals, with students or other OGs looking to enhance or transition their careers.
We welcome you to take up a Mentor role to students and younger OGs. You can also apply as a Mentee if you are seeking out networks, professional growth and career progression.
Expressions of interest as a mentor or mentee can be directed to email@example.com.
Volunteers are integral to the foundation and growth of our Old Grammarians Society.
We have a group of talented OGs who are wholeheartedly engaged and extremely passionate about strengthening connections, building new friendships and proving engagement opportunities for fellow OGs. Without them, our OG network would not be what it is today.
Volunteer roles are entirely crafted based on your availability, interests, experience and knowledge. Whether you are interested in a formal role on a committee, a guardian or mentor relationship, speaker opportunities, or you are keen to assist with your upcoming reunion, we’d love to hear from you.
Contact Reahn Aitchison, the Alumnae and Engagement Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

Through MGGS Connect you will have access to information on the Old Grammarians Merton Club. The Merton Club, established early in 2018 by a group of enthusiastic and passionate young old grammarians, maintains a strong focus on social wellness. The club aims to bring OGs and friends together to re-engage with other OGs, get involved in social occasions and partake in sports and wellbeing clubs and activities.
Information on the Merton Club, and the types of sporting teams includes, can be found via MGGS Connect.
Do you have an interest in coming back to the School, exploring all that has changed and understanding more about the learning environments and services on offer now? You can contact our Community Office to arrange a meeting and short tour. If you are interested in School Tours for future enrolments, please Book a Tour online.
Details on access to Artemis Centre and its programs can be found at the Artemis Centre website. OGs are encouraged to join the Merton Swim Squad, or have their children take part in Aquatics and Gymnastics. New programs are being rolled out regularly, so we encourage you to review the website for the latest information.
