Old Girls' Association

Once a PC girl, always a PC girl

The Perth College Old Girls’ Association (OGA) celebrates the lives and achievements of more than 11,000 past students of Perth College, promoting them as role models for the students of today and tomorrow.

The OGA was established in 1913 and works together with Perth College to foster a strong sense of community. The Old Girls organise a variety of academic, cultural, social, spiritual and sporting events that help maintain the traditions of the school while promoting a sense of friendship and belonging.

Old Girls offer mentoring to current students, as well as raise funds that are often directed back into scholarships and bursaries that give the daughters and granddaughters of financial members the chance to become Perth College girls.

Old Girls are also encouraged to keep Perth College and the OGA up-to-date about their news, achievements or changes to their contact details. This will ensure the OGA can keep you informed of the latest news, send you the Myalla magazine, Heritage Magazine and, of course, invite you to special events.

Every Perth College Old Girl is welcome to join the OGA as a financial or non-financial member. For more information, please contact Alumni Co-ordinator Caroline Risah on (08) 9471 2163 or email [email protected].

In partnership with the Old Girls' Association, the Perth College Foundation's Class Gift Appeal has now been formally established as the OGA Heritage Scholarship for a deserving daughter or granddaughter of an Old Girl to be enrolled in Years 11 and 12.

The OGA and the Foundation have further jointly agreed that this important scholarship should continue to be funded on a three-year cycle. We have agreed that the Class Gift fundraising for this scholarship, via OGA-sponsored events, will continue consistent with our “Living Generously” philosophy. The Foundation has also committed to ongoing funding of the balance of the value of the Scholarship.

We are stronger together and the Class Gift Appeal allows Old Girls of all ages to work together. Donations of any amount are appreciated, as every donation will assist us in reaching this goal. To donate, visit our online giving page and select the Class Gift Appeal.

Old Girls' Association Committee

The work and direction of the OGA is guided by the Committee, and anyone who is a financial member of the Old Girls’ Association is eligible to nominate for committee membership. The Annual General Meeting is held in April of every year.

Being a member of the Committee allows you to guide decision-making, help plan OGA events and volunteer your time at various OGA and Perth College activities. It’s a great way to stay involved, have fun and keep in touch with Old Girls from all class cohorts.

The Perth College OGA Committee meets once a month on a Tuesday at 6.30 pm in Myalla House, 34 Lawley Crescent, Mount Lawley.
