NEGS girls, past and present, reside around Australia and around the world and their success, resilience and enthusiastic participation in life is evident wherever you go.
As NEGS is predominately a boarding school, with a strong sense of community, many essential livelong bonds are forged and highly revered within their lives. Established in 1913, (18 years after the school began) the NEGS Old Girls' Union (NOGU) was formed to maintain and pass down traditions of the school, unite past students with the present, and help keep members and all old girls connected.
Today the NOGU is known as NEGS Alumni Association to reflect that the ex-student body consists of our Junior School boys who graduate from NEGS in Year 6 and our Senior Girls.
The Alumni has over 5,500 members and financially supports Scholarships and Bursaries to future students. We have branches in Armidale, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne where volunteer committee members help develop connections and organise events.
The close ties Old Girls have with one another and NEGS can be seen in their enthusiastic participation in many of the schools activities. Old Girls return each year in September near St Michaelmas Day (Old Girls' Weekend) to attend their 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, year unions to walk down memory lane. They are also invited as guest speakers and as guests too many of the school functions and mentoring programs each year.
Old girls of all ages with fresh ideas are warmly welcomed as new committee members.
Contact your nearest branch below to join or enjoy attending functions.
