Old Girls’ Union

Established in 1913, the NEGS Old Girls’ Union fosters fellowship amongst former students and encourages Old Girls to maintain their links with the school. The OGU also financially supports many of the school’s building programs and offers Scholarships and Bursaries to future students.

The close ties Old Girls have with one another and NEGS are reflected in their active participation in many of the school’s 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, 65 year reunions. They are also invited as guest speakers and as guests at many of the functions held each year.

There are so many ways for you to stay involved with NEGS and the Old Girls’ Union. Events + AGMs are held in Armidale, and also at Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra and the Hunter Valley.
