Welcome to all past students of Queenwood. Once your school years are over there is still much to be gained by continuing the association with your old school. The Queenwood Old Girls’ Association (QOGA) strives to keep the school spirit alive through its many activities from reunions, special events, morning teas, newsletters and artistic endeavours such as The Vision Art Shows and theatrical productions drawing together the many talents of Old Girls.
The Association helps alumni remain in contact with classmates and network with one another. Class reunions are held regularly and Old Girls are able to make use of facilities at Senior Schools as a venue for their reunions.
QOGA also assists in mentoring current students, particularly with work experience opportunities or simply by giving professional advice. Old Girls who return to school as guest speakers are inspirational. A number have been invited to be part of the School’s Speech Night held at Sydney Town Hall, where they represent the successes and achievements of so many Queenwood girls.
Aims of the Association are:
- To keep past students of the School in touch with each other, particularly members of the Association.
- To support the School whenever necessary as a community and with fundraising activities.
- To keep Old Girls informed of the School’s progress, success and development.
- To provide information concerning activities of the Association, reunions and news of Old Girls.
