Alumni Stories

Our Grammar Women

Welcome to our collection of stories from the diverse and wonderful community of Grammar Women around the world. From sporting grit to political negotiation and everything in between, you will see the different pathways past students have taken and the interesting and varied careers they have discovered.

This is just the beginning, and we need your help to gather more of our Grammar Women experiences.

If you would like to share your story please fill in this template and send it back to communications@bggs.qld.edu.au, or simply put forward a friend and we’ll get in touch with them.
