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.

Connect with the OGA on their website here www.somervillehouseoga.com.au or the OGA Facebook page.
