Old Girls’ Union Events

NEGS Old Girls’ Weekend – POSTPONED

We have made the sad decision that we cannot plan for an Old Girls’ Weekend this September as Government social distancing requirements for schools in term 3 will be very strict. Planning a whole weekend of activities where 200+ Old Girls come into the school grounds and buildings in term 4 will also not be realistic at this point. Therefore, we have postponed Old Girls’ Weekend 2020 to join the reunion groups of Old Girls’ Weekend 2021. We will definitely hold our Old Girls’ Celebration Lunch in 2021 which will include all Old Girls.

To mark the occasion of the 125 Year Anniversary of NEGS this year, the School and the Old Girls’ Union are endeavouring to plan an Event towards the end of term 4 (dependent upon Government restrictions) for the whole school community, past and present. Fingers crossed. We anticipate this will showcase the history of the school and will be fun to reconnect after these isolation times and we hope that many Old Girls will be able to support and enjoy this event. Further information will be posted on the website and via email in due course, or please contact Libby Parry

About 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.
