Grammar Women

Grammar Women

‘There is a certain security in having the Girls Grammar connection – safety in the knowledge of having lifelong friends to encourage, challenge and inspire through life’s journey’ (Isabeau Williams, 2009).

More than 20,000 students have graduated from Brisbane Girls Grammar School in the past 140+ years and this diverse group of Grammar Women are contributing confidently to their world – both near and far.

In addition to past students, the Girls Grammar alumni community also includes past staff, past parents and past Trustee members.

Old Girls Association

The Brisbane Girls Grammar School Old Girls Association is one of the oldest in Australia, founded in 1899 and incorporated in 1997. The Old Girls Association and the School schedule various Grammar Women events throughout the year and invite members of the Girls Grammar community to participate in them.

Keep in Touch

Our Grammar Wommen remain connected to the School in many ways, and we encourage you to update your details for access to the latest news, events and volunteer opportunities.

Grammar Women LinkedIn

The Grammar Women LinkedIn group and the School’s Grammar Women event series provide opportunities for past students to reconnect with the School and each other, sharing stories of how they are contributing confidently to their world — local and global — with wisdom, imagination and integrity.

As this is a private LinkedIn Group for past students of Girls Grammar, you will need to visit the group, then click ‘Join’ to request membership. Your request will be reviewed by the group manager as soon as possible.

Brisbane Girls Grammar School Facebook

The Brisbane Girls Grammar School Facebook page is a place for all members of the Girls Grammar community to stay up-to-date with news from the School.

School reunions provide a fantastic opportunity for Grammar Women to reconnect with friends and classmates and reminisce about their days at Brisbane Girls Grammar School.


The archives collect the permanent School records and related materials that document the history of Brisbane Girls Grammar School from its inception in 1875. We invite Grammar Women and friends of the School to donate, or make available on permanent loan, materials relating to the School’s history.
