Parents Association

At Melbourne Girls Grammar we are privileged to have a vibrant and engaged parent community.

Our Parents Association dates back to 1928 and in conjunction with the School, has played a vital role in building a thriving community with our students at the core of all activities.

We believe that parent participation in the School community is an integral part of your daughters’ educational experience.

Opportunities to volunteer are as diverse as our community itself.  Ways to be involved include:

  • As a class rep
  • As a participant in one of the following auxiliaries: Sport, Arts, Snowsports, Rowing, Boarders’ Parents, Service, and Pastoral Care
  • As a swap shop volunteer
  • Or in a variety of one-off experiences throughout the school year

Please get in touch with our Parents Association via the Community Office at community@mggs.vic.edu.au to register your interest, or watch your inbox for upcoming opportunities.

Welcome from the President

As President of the Parents Association, I am so inspired by the commitment our parents, past and present, show for our School’s initiatives.

We play a vital role in building a loyal community and it is our responsibility as the voice of the parents to maintain a strong alliance with the School’s administration, ensuring there is open communication at all times.

An exciting new initiative for 2017 is our Pastoral Care Committee.  It is our way of bringing our community together to support members who are going through a difficult time and need extra support.

Whether you have an hour once a year to welcome parents to a cocktail party, or an hour once a week to spend in the swap shop (or many hours a week to stand on the shores of the Yarra to cheer on your rower!) there is a place for you in the Parents Association of MGGS.

Please feel free to contact me via community@mggs.vic.edu.au with any feedback or queries you have about becoming an active member of this network.
