The Grammarians' Association

Preserving the past and promoting the future

The Canberra Girls Grammar School Grammarians’ Association (GA) was formed as the Old Girls’ Union in 1931, just five years after the founding of the School. Six past students comprised the Committee under the presidency of Diana Prance (Eddison, 1931). Since that time, the GA has responded to the changing fortunes of Canberra and the development of the School. It now has over 9,500 members.

The GA exists to promote the interests of past students, the ties between them and the School, and the interests of the School in the community. The GA provides a link to the School for past students but more importantly, a sense of community. 

The GA provides opportunities for members to keep in touch with former classmates and to have continuing involvement with the School. It also contributes to the ongoing life of CGGS through the provision of scholarships for senior students, annual prizes for academic achievement and school spirit, donations and assistance with special projects which benefit the whole school community.
