The Grammarians' Association
Promoting the Future and Preserving the Past
Founded in 1931, the Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) Grammarians’ Association was formed originally as the Old Girls’ Union. Under the presidency of Diana Prance (Eddison, 1931) and with the support of six past students, the foundations of the Grammarians Association were established. Since that time, the Grammarians Association has continued to foster the School community, connecting current and former students.
The Association has grown beyond Canberra to develop a global presence with over 12,500 members in more than 46 countries. The Grammarians Association is a diverse and dynamic community connecting past students, providing a network for communication and supporting continuous involvement with the School. The Grammarians’ Association contributes to the ongoing life of CGGS through special events, contribution of annual prizes for academic achievement and school spirit, donations, and assistance with special projects which benefit the whole School community.
Becoming a Grammarian
Upon graduation, all students who have attended CGGS for a period of 12 months or more automatically become Life Members of the Grammarians’ Association. As a member you are entitled to:
- Lifetime subscription to The Grammar Report magazine. The Grammar Report is typically published twice a year and contains information about school life and news of Grammarians

- Founders' Day celebrations which include our annual class reunions

As a diverse and evolving community, the need to connect online is becoming increasingly important. With a world-wide network of Grammarians, we recognise the necessity for an efficient platform to help you stay in touch and keep your details up to date. The School, in collaboration with the Grammarians’ Association Committee is in the process of scoping a new digital space for members to connect. We will keep you up to date with developments as they happen - to be sure you don’t miss out, contact us to update your details at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Rebecca Turner, Alumni and Events Manager on 02 6202 6403.
