Each day, in big ways and small, our teachers enrich the lives of Grammar girls—in the classroom, on the sporting field or stage, during lunch break, at Interhouse competitions, and beyond. I know our community of Grammar Women reading this article will remember how their teachers inspired, empowered and challenged them.
One of the most enduring lessons I remember from my days as a Grammar girl was to be open to opportunities to learn—at all times—in all circumstances. What you learn while playing sport or during rehearsals for a Drama Production will always be applicable beyond the stage or field. My teachers instilled in me the concept that every interaction with every person was a chance to gain new knowledge—there is always something to learn. This is a notion I hold close today, and I know one that will be important for the 249 Grammar girls who became Grammar Women last month. They will be reading this Newsletter for the first time, confirming the next, exciting chapter in their life and hopefully be excited about joining a network that spans the globe—generations of former Grammar girls, who continue to establish successful careers, realise their dreams, chase extraordinary goals, travel the world, create families, and forge lifelong friendships.
