Welcome to GOGA
For many Old Girls, Glennie was much more than just a school; it was a place of community, where lifelong friendships were formed and aspirations born.
It marked birthday celebrations and teenage milestones. For boarders, it was a place to call home. Unknown at the time, our little school on Herries Street was where future bridal parties and mums groups first came together as friends. And for more than just a few, it was where they first sighted future significant others at end-of-year dances and formals.
As time goes by, we often forget the hundreds of hours spent sitting in the Knapp classroom or dining hall. We forget trying to avoid landing in the agapanthus at lunch! Yet these fond memories sustain us well into adulthood.
Glennie kindled a lifelong love of learning.
We hope that the GOGA can be an opportunity for friends to connect and continue to celebrate the achievements of our fellow alumnae – and share what it means to be part of the history of this very special school.

The Glennie Archive preserves The Glennie School’s rich history and can be visited by appointment.
The collection comprises fascinating items that document this history, such as photographs, documents, publications, and memorabilia.
Many visitors find information about family members who were Glennie Old Girls in the Archive. The collection also plays an important role in providing current students and teachers with resources that complement the curriculum.
Donations towards the Glennie Archive are gratefully accepted and can be arranged by contacting the GOGA Treasurer.
