The Grammarians' Association

Some of our Grammarians with CGGS Senior Council, March 2021

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 12,900 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 that benefit the whole School community.
