It is with great pride that I announce that Melbourne Girls’ College have established an Alumni Association to unite the school community with past students and their families. As the first President, I would like to personally welcome you to the Alumni Association.
I am honoured to serve as your President and work with the Executive Board to help us re-connect with one another and re-engage with the College. The Executive Board is comprised of a group of passionate and talented alumni who generously volunteer their time to plan a number of exciting and enriching alumni events and activities.
Membership of the Alumni Association is free. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to register here http://alumni.mgc.jdlf.com.au to be added to our alumni database and receive updates on alumni news and events. By registering on our database, you can capitalise on the numerous opportunities to network and socialise with fellow graduates.
There are a variety of ways you can connect with us, whether it is by attending one of our many alumni events, reunions, networking opportunities, volunteering to mentor current students, speaking to current students and sharing your valuable experiences, presenting awards to students, and of course, by donating money to the school building or library fund to build new state of the art buildings and give our students more opportunities for future growth. Our Alumni Association is also committed to helping develop future leaders by supporting our current students and is actively looking for opportunities for work experience placements with alumni.
By registering your details on our alumni database and joining the Alumni Association, you will be able to expand your network of like-minded peers and find out about upcoming alumni activities, volunteer and much more. Through the database, you can easily update your information and share your thoughts on how the College can better serve you and other alumni.
We are very excited to announce our first alumni event to commemorate the 21st anniversary of our College, which will be held on Saturday 24 October 2015. I would like to invite each and every one of you to come to the College where there will be a delicious array of food available, including a sausage sizzle and Devonshire tea. We welcome you to relax and enjoy some entertainment and music ensembles performed by our current students. You can also go on a guided tour to see our beautiful new buildings and garden plantings, spend time looking through photographs in the archives, and experience some of the varied activities which take place at the College, ranging from our aerobics and rowing program, and culminating in the cadet parade. Most importantly, it will be an opportunity to catch up with fellow alumni, teachers and parents and share stories and memories of your time at MGC. So mark your calendars to be at the College for our 21st birthday celebration and participate in the festivities.
If you have any questions about the Alumni Association, please feel free to contact me or any of the other officers on the Executive Board by emailing us at [email protected]. Please also contact us if you are interested in volunteering, organising an event, making a donation or serving on the Executive Board.
I look forward to seeing and hearing from you all.
