Forever a Somerville Girl
There is no better expression of the Somerville House sense of community than that seen through our Old Girls’ Association (OGA) and Alumni networks. Somerville House past students are lifetime alumni of the school. When a student walks out the gates for the final time, she is able to rely on solid friendships, utilise extraordinary networks and draw on the values and life skills from her days as a 'girl in green'.
The Old Girls’ Association (OGA) was originally formed in 1901 to help generations of former students maintain contact with each other and continue to be involved in school life. Students from the graduating class of 2016 and beyond, enjoy automatic membership to the Association, while students graduating prior to that year must download and complete a registration form and submit their application fee to confirm their application.
The School acknowledges the important role of the OGA and offers support to all Alumnae members through the Alumni Office.
President: Ms Alison Kolb
Vice Presidents: Mrs Trudy Naylor and Ms Alison Kolb

Today, the Alumni Office, in conjunction with the OGA, seeks to maintain links between past students and their families, Old Girls' Association members and the current School community.
By facilitating reunions and other engagement opportunities, past students are invited to remain connected with each other and the School.
The OGA also produces merchandise for sale. A full list of merchandise is available by contacting the Committee on firstname.lastname@example.org.
All past students are encouraged to stay connected with other Old Girls and the School.
