Grammar Women—Grammar Girls Mentoring Program

The Grammar Women—Grammar Girls Mentoring Program is a new initiative that seeks to strengthen connections between current students and alumnae in a meaningful and rewarding way.

We are looking for volunteer peer mentors to guide and support Year 11 students to establish and attain their academic, personal or other goals. The School will match a small group of current students (2-3 per group) with a suitable alumna peer mentor, based on shared interests and experience.


Attend four 90-minute meetings across the year. Attendance will be required at all four meetings. Meetings will be organised and facilitated by Brisbane Girls Grammar School staff and Program Coordinators, Ms Ruth Jans and Ms Antonia Swindells.

Contribution: Why be a mentor?

Peer mentoring allows you to share your experience and knowledge with current students, while further developing your own communication and leadership skills. Participation in this program is a wonderful way to contribute to BGGS and to the next generation of Grammar Women.

Mentors should be:

  • interested in helping others succeed
  • reliable, trustworthy and able to maintain confidentiality
  • skilled at active listening and providing constructive feedback
  • willing to share their own experiences and offer advice.


Structured mentoring meetings will be held at BGGS from 5.30 pm to 7 pm on the following evenings:

  • Tuesday 28 February 2023
  • Thursday 20 April 2023
  • Mid-program review—phone meeting with coordinator
  • Tuesday 13 June 2023
  • Thursday 4 August 2023
  • End of program review and feedback—phone meeting with coordinator

As a young alumnae who graduated between 2015 and 2020, we welcome you to register your expression of interest in becoming a peer mentor by completing an online survey via the link below:
