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. The NOGU 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 Alumni have with one another and NEGS can be seen in their enthusiastic participation in many of the school’s activities. Alumni 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 to many of the school functions and mentoring programs each year.

Donate to Our Scholarships
Scholarships are awarded to prospective students who embody the spirit of a NEGS girl and are a relative of an Old Girl, or at the discretion of the NEGS Old Girls’ Union to a family who is undergoing financial difficulty. The NOGU are proud to be able to help future generations have the wonderful all-round education they were fortunate to receive.
Every student who passes through the gates of NEGS today benefits from the exceptional generosity of past generations of benefactors and your tax-deductible gift ensures NEGS girls continue to flourish for future generations.
