Old Girls’ Association (OGA)
The Old Girls’ Association (OGA) was originally formed in 1901 to help generations of former students maintain contact with each other and continue their involvement in the Somerville House community. Today, it is an active organisation that strives to support, celebrate and strengthen relations among Old Girls, students and other members of the Somerville House family. Through networking events, reunions and other engagement opportunities, past students are encouraged to remain connected with each other and the School.
Becoming a member of the OGA has many advantages including access to the portal and membership only sections on the new OGA website. Students from the graduating Class of 2016 and beyond enjoy automatic membership to the Association. Existing OGA members who have not yet signed into the portal are invited to register via www.somervillehouseoga.com.au/signup.
New members are very welcome and those who join before 1 February 2020 can access a $50 lifetime membership special (normally $200). If you are unsure of your membership status, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
